Cinnamon Roll Overnight Oats and an Update on my Health Journey

Cinnamon Roll Overnight Oats

Cinnamon Roll Overnight Oats is a healthy way to eat your decadent rolls in oatmeal form…

Cinnamon Roll Overnight Oats

This Cinnamon Roll Overnight Oats is the best thing that ever happened to breakfast! It’s been quite a while since I last enjoyed one and as far as I can remember it was this Strawberry Banana Overnight Oats.

What prompted me to make pastry flavored oats today? Well, I was in the mood for something a little bit more like dessert but can still be accepted as breakfast. Hence, this. The truth is, I think I’m the only one in my family who enjoys overnight oats. peanutbutter indulged in it for a while but he got tired of it after a few tries. They’re more into pancakes, bacon, sausages, SiLogs, lugaw, sumpia, and ham sandwiches.

So I let them have their favorite breakfasts and they let me have my overnight oats. Anything to keep the peace in the morning. Besides, I need my oatmeal these days. I need an excuse to say I’m eating healthy.

Because…. man, it’s hard to stay on track! There are too many distractions!

The last time I updated you on my health journey was when I made this Pork Bistek Tagalog for lunch. I talked about how it was  a struggle and how I gained back a few pounds. Yeah, it’s a bit depressing. There’s an itsy bitsy bit of good news though, I managed to bounce back. I lost the two (and more) pounds gained and lost one more pound.

  1. Good luck with your health journey! I also started back in November, and I started at 184 pounds! I am now at about 168. It is so, so hard sometimes, but really keeping in mind the end result you want makes it worth it, and eating lots of GOOD foods that just happen to be good for you. And I know it’s hard with a food blog… I still make sweets all the time on my blog but luckily I have my boyfriend and friends to give most of them to (and take a liiiitle bit for myself still!)
    Anyway, Good luck again!! You can do it 🙂

  2. Love me some cinnamon rolls but if trying to lose weight these over night oats that taste like cinnamon rolls would be even better.

  3. Cinnamon Rolls are a favorite of mine and if I can have the taste without all the calories and fat, I’m in! I love oatmeal on a cold winter morning, so this is the perfect recipe for me.

  4. These sound so good! I know my husband is going to love these. I will have to make him some soon.

  5. Looks like you were on track in 2016! Keep it up girl! I know the feeling on trying to eat healthier! There are days that I am GREAT and then there are ones that I eat Oreos for lunch! LOL Keep it up girl!

  6. This would be a healthy breakfast option for me. I sometimes tend to skip breakfast because I am always in a rush and find no time to fix myself something before I head out the door. This overnight oats is great because I can make it before I go to bed and then wake up to a nutritious and delicious treat.

  7. This looks SO good! I need to try this out, I love overnight oats – they are so yummy! They look amazing, too!

  8. I have been wanting to try a great overnight oats recipe for a while now and this one sounds like an amazing!! I need to try this!!

  9. I love my overnight oats big time but not tried them with cinamono roll which I think is a fantastic idea. Good luck with your weight journey, I have been struggling lately

  10. Looks so yummy. I haven’t tried overnight oats, but have planned to for the longest time. Good job on the weight loss…I find micronutrients really helpful in cleaning the gut, try moringa (malunggay) – works wonders. 🙂
