With overnight oats becoming increasingly popular, as well as being super aesthetically pleasing to look at, Starbucks jumped on the bandwagon and started producing their own version.
This version contains a delicious strawberry jam base, as well as some tasty chia seeds which have been soaked overnight in coconut milk, infusing them with beautifully delicate flavors. It’s topped with some fresh nuts to give you the perfect crunch with each bite.

7. Turkey Bacon And Egg White Sandwich
If you want a super fluffy and delicious breakfast sandwich, then we recommend that you opt for this one on your next trip to Starbucks.
It’s also great for those who are looking for a healthier breakfast option, but don’t want to skip out on the bread.

It’s packed with extra amounts of protein, thanks to the bacon pieces included in this one.
These babies are made by vacuum sealing the ingredients, before cooking them super slowly in warm water. Because they’re cooked in this manner, it ensures that they don’t have lots of unnecessary fats packed in.

Whoever invented avocado spread honestly deserves a gold medal, as it goes so well with so many different kinds of food. But honestly, we can’t think of anything better than a simple, plain bagel.
This bagel tastes just like a New York variety, and has a subtly sweet taste that is really brought out by the avocado spread. You can choose whether or not you’d like yours to be toasted or not, so the choice is entirely up to you.

17. Egg White And Roasted Red Pepper Sous Vide Egg Bites
Another one of Starbucks delicious egg bite options, these roasted red pepper ones are super tasty. Unlike the kale ones which have a bit more of a subtle flavor, these ones really pack a punch.
The roasted red pepper is incredibly tangy and moreish, and paired with the delicate taste of the spinach, they really make a wonderful combination.
The eggs themselves are different from the other sous vide bites, as they’re made from just the egg whites. This gives them a slightly lighter taste, which works really well with the other ingredients.
