These overnight oats are super simple to make and totally family friendly, and we think you’re going to love making them!

What are overnight oats

Overnight oats are a cook-free method of making oatmeal that turns raw oats into a delicious, soft porridge-like consistency! Essentially, you soak the oats in milk for an extended period of time — two hours should be sufficient, but overnight is best. At the end, you’ll have a ready-made breakfast!

Overnight oats are delicious and have a slightly creamier texture than cooked oatmeal, while retaining all the health benefits! These include the fiber and protein of the oats along with the benefits from the added ingredients you may have. 

Why we love Date and Apricot Overnight Oats

We think this recipe is so delicious and it’s also so simple! Since you’re not cooking, all you have to do is prepare the oats in the evening and leave in the fridge overnight, and you’ll have a ready-made breakfast no matter what you’re looking for in the morning.

Plus, we love the way the dates and the apricots taste together! Dates are chewy and have a slightly caramel-like flavor, which is so good. On top of that, they’re very healthy! So when you add them to the oats, this is really a great superfood.

How Date Overnight Oats can be enjoyed for Suhur

Another reason we love Date Overnight Oats is because it can be enjoyed for Suhur during Ramadan. Ramadan is a holy month during which Muslims fast and pray. Suhur is the last meal eaten before the day of fasting begins.

This recipe packs such a powerful nutritious and energetic punch that it’s perfect for that meal before a day of fasting, introspection, and prayer. The fact that it’s delicious is an added bonus!
