Heads up! If you’re looking for a grab and go breakfast that’s is healthy AND taste amazing Pineapple Cobbler Overnight Oats is the recipe for you!
This is the perfect example of an easy grab and go breakfast recipe. This overnight yogurt oatmeal is insanely delicious with the fresh, canned, or dried pineapple.
- Obviously, fresh pineapple is the healthiest with the most nutrients and the least amount of sugar. However, sometimes fresh is just not an option in some areas.
- Canned pineapple is cheaper but look for pineapple canned in its own juice, no added sugar.
- I didn’t even know dried pineapple was a thing until recently. This would be my last option. Because heat is used during the dehydration process, pineapple loses much of its nutrient content when it is dried. (As does other fruits.) Additionally, When fruit is dehydrated, water is removed from it, leaving it higher in nutrients per gram but also higher in sugar.
Pineapples make a great fruit for breakfast. Pineapples contain high amounts of vitamin C and manganese. They are rich in vitamins, enzymes, antioxidants, dietary fiber, and bromelain. As well, pineapple is fat-free, cholesterol-free and low in sodium.
If that’s not a good way to start the day, I don’t know what is!
How to Make Pineapple Cobbler Overnight Oats
It’s an easy concept. You add a liquid that will soften the oats over time. Some recipes use milk and some use yogurt. My recipe calls for both. I like the texture yogurt gives the oats.
Get a jar or container with a lid. Add the ingredients, stir, put on the lid, and refrigerate.
Wait until morning and you have a ready-made breakfast!
For me, I like my overnight oats cold during the summer. However, I like to heat them to warm during cold winter months. Try them both ways and pop them in the microwave to 30 seconds to 1 minute if you prefer.
