Hear from Agatha below:

How do you make overnight oats become even more delicious and healthy? My secret ingredient is superfood Comvita UMF™ Manuka Honey – I use it as a healthier sweetener alternative that offers added immune and digestive support. Mix in some chia seeds for fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, plus creamy, nutrient-rich cashew milk for an elevated breakfast experience.

As a full time working mother, weekday breakfasts need to happen fast given how time-constrained mornings are. Overnight oats have been a lifesaver in our home. We mix everything in jars at night and store in the refrigerator. Breakfast is ready in the morning– all we do is stir in fresh fruits and nuts, and voila! Talk about a nutritious grab-n-go breakfast.

Since I started adding Comvita UMF™ Manuka Honey in my overnight oats, it works like magic for sweet cravings. You will be amazed how satisfying this dish is. The added tablespoon of almond flour gives it a luscious feel in the mouth. The notes of raw honey and splash of vanilla make these overnight oats taste like cake batter. Whenever I have a sweet tooth, this is my pick-me-up. You and your entire family are going to love this multi-purpose, everyday meal.

This super easy, delicious, nourishing breakfast is high in immune-supporting nutrients like protein, fiber, omega-3 fatty acid, and antioxidants. Comvita’s Manuka Honey is Non-GMO Project Verified and Certified Gluten-Free, the only Manuka Honey with both certifications. Healthy never has to be bland or boring with the right ingredients!
