Confession: When I began thinking of what flavors I wanted to create for Liss Energy gels, I pulled inspiration from all my favorite desserts. I have a huge sweet tooth, so I’ll take any chance I can get to put a sweeter spin on my go-to healthy recipes.

Today I’m sharing three overnight oats recipes that will not only satisfy your hunger, but also help curb sugar cravings. Overnight oats are simple to prepare and make the perfect grab-and-go breakfast for busy mornings, so they’ve been a staple in my kitchen for years. They’re also versatile, so feel free to sub out any ingredients and get creative. The possibilities are endless!

Double Chocolate Overnight Oats

Serves 1

Ingredients:
1/2 cup rolled oats (I use gluten-free)
1 cup almond milk
1 tbsp. chia seeds
1 tbsp. maple syrup
1 tsp. cacao powder
1 tbsp. cacao nibs
1/2 sliced banana (optional topping)

Directions:
Combine all ingredients except banana in a mason jar and seal tightly. Refrigerate overnight. The next morning, give everything a good stir and top with sliced banana and another sprinkling of cacao nibs.

Honey Tahini Overnight Oats

Serves 1

Ingredients:
1/3 cup rolled oats (I use gluten-free)
1/2 cup almond milk
2 tsp. chia seeds
1 tbsp. tahini
1 tsp. raw honey
1 tbsp. vanilla protein powder (I love Aloha and Tone It Up brands)

Directions:
Combine all ingredients in a mason jar and seal tightly. Refrigerate overnight. The next morning, give everything a good stir and enjoy. This recipe comes out slightly thicker than the other two, but the added boost of protein will keep you fuller longer.

Berry Coconut Overnight Oats

Serves 1

Ingredients:
1/2 cup rolled oats (I use gluten-free)
1 cup almond milk
1 tbsp. chia seeds
1 tbsp. coconut palm nectar (if you can’t find this, you can always substitute it with maple syrup or raw honey)
1/2 cup mixed berries (I love strawberries, blueberries and raspberries)
1 tbsp. raw shredded coconut

Directions:
Combine oats, almond milk, chia seeds and coconut palm nectar in a mason jar and seal tightly. Refrigerate overnight. The next morning, give everything a good stir and top with berries and shredded coconut.
