Our date and apricot overnight oats recipe is the most delicious breakfast. We take the common no-cook cooking method to prepare overnight oats, and include our favorite flavors. Whether you’re fasting for Ramadan (and looking for a good Suhur food) or just on the hunt for more breakfast recipes, this is the breakfast for you.

These overnight oats are super simple to make and 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 (cows milk or plant based milk) for an extended period of time — two hours should be sufficient, but overnight is best. And just like that, 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! Oats have loads of fiber and protein, making them a healthy breakfast choice. Incorporating fruits like dates and apricots also adds fiber, keeping you fuller for longer!

Why we love Date and Apricot Overnight Oats

Our favorite part about making overnight oats is the ease! You get the most scrumptious, creamy texture, with just a few minutes of prep time. Since you’re not cooking, all you have to do is prepare the oats in the evening and leave in the fridge overnight. Say goodbye to rushed mornings where making breakfast feels like the biggest chore! 

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 Overnight Oats can be enjoyed for Suhur

Another reason we love these yummy 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 prior to sunrise ahead of fasting for the day.

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. Our date and apricot oats make for a filling meal to keep your energy up and your appetite satiated throughout the day.
