Almond mocha overnight oats
Sorry to break it to you, but coffee does not count as breakfast—unless you put it in these overnight oats, of course! Packed with fiber, whole grains, healthy fats and protein, this breakfast satisfies while also providing a caffeine kick-start to your day. Caffeine consumed in safe amounts can fit into a healthy, balanced diet—but remember to choose sources of caffeine that limit added sugars and saturated fat.
