Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Overnight Oats

Cinnamon raisin bread has always been a favorite of mine. The naturally sweet and spiced union of flavor can brighten up just about any morning. However, it’s time to get real and ditch that processed, refined bread, and send this classic combo. to an even higher level. This time, we’re going extra healthy, with none other than my favorite fiber-loaded breakfast ingredient—oats. Making your own amped up version of cinnamon raisin bread in a bowl is really quite simple. All it takes is a few raisins, a pinch of brown sugar, and let’s not forget, a healthy swirl of cinnamon. This is a breakfast that’s sure to leave both your taste-buds and your tummy satisfied. The fiber from the oats will work to fill you up without weighing you down, and the cinnamon, known for regulating blood sugar, will help prevent any sudden energy crashes or spikes in appetite before your next course rolls around. Also, I’m on a creamy overnight oats kick and am loving the extra few minutes it allows me in the morning, but feel free to turn this into a hot breakfast delight!

    I love cinnamon raisin bread, cinnamon and sugar on toast but hate cinnamon in basically everything else.

    I am so odd. I wish I loved it more though!

    There is something about cinnamon bread that perks me up in the morning. I’ll make whole wheat french toast and sprinkle cinnamon on it, I’ll put extra cinnamon in muffins or pancakes. I know not everyone likes cinnamon but it sure can add some flavor (while barely any calories!).
