Get ready to meet your new favourite breakfast because who doesn't love something that tastes naughty but is oh so nice! All the flavour of your favourite cookie dough but in the super handy form of overnight oats.
Oats have been known as a beauty superfood for a long time. They contain B vitamins, magnesium, manganese and zinc as well as a great balance of fibre and macronutrients. The best part is that they are super easy to fit into your diet and they make a wonderful base for endless combinations of delicious breakfasts. Oats also contain fabulous chemicals called avenanthramides, which are antioxidants and promote soothing and healing (this is why oats make wonderful face masks as well as breakfasts).
Some of the other beauty superfoods in this particular combination are cacao nibs, chia seeds and almonds. Cacao nibs are loaded with antioxidants including catechin, epicatechin, and procyanidins which can help prevent premature aging by protecting your from free radical damage. Chia seeds are nutrient powerhouses which also contain essential fatty acids which help to improve barrier function of the skin. Almonds are also packed full of healthy fats, vitamins and minerals including vitamin E, which acts as an antioxidant and helps to soothe and hydrate skin.
