A nourishing breakfast and cup of coffee all-in-one! This coffee crunch overnight oat recipe will leave you feeling nourished and energized all morning long.  It's an easy, delicious, and nutrient-packed recipe that could be enjoyed cold or heated up. This recipe is a perfect mix of creamines, crunch from the nuts and granola, and natural sweetness from vanilla and/or dates! 
What I love about overnight oats is that you can make endless variations and they are perfect for meal prepping since it require just 5 minutes of prep time.  Oats are also a perfect breakfast option since just 1/2 cup of old-fashioned oats provides 4 grams of fiber- great for intestinal health, blood sugar regulation, cholesterol management, and fullness! My usual overnight oat base includes chia seeds, non-fat or Greek yogurt, and your choice of milk. The chia seeds add onto the nutritional benefits like providing plant-based omega-3 fatty acids and fiber. Adding Greek yogurt is a bonus since it provides a dose of protein. For this recipe, I added dates for sweetness which provides a caramel-like sweetness that pairs deliciously with coffee!
