Coconut-Lime Overnight Oats

Here is a convenient, grab-and-go breakfast recipe with a fresh flavor. Overnights oats can be made with any flavors, fruits, nuts, seeds or nut butters, but however you flavor it, the combination of fiber-rich rolled oats and protein-dense Greek yogurt will keep you full and satiated all morning and help bring stable energy (and blood sugar) to the start of your day! If you’re looking to change this recipe into a healthy, hearty dessert, top it off with a crushed graham cracker or two crushed Biscoff cookies. —Dana Mealing, RDN, LDN, CIEC, community nutrition educator at the Tevis Center for Wellness
