overnight oatsI love having oatmeal for breakfast but sometimes I’m in such a rush that I don’t have time to make it on my way to work. Other days, I don’t feel like having hot oatmeal. Enter, overnight oats. They can be made the night before and stored in the fridge, where it’s easy to grab them on the way out the door. Here’s a great recipe from Kath Eats Real Food.

Overnight oatmeal is simply uncooked oats refrigerated and soaked overnight in the liquid of your choice. Most people make overnight oats with equal parts milk, rolled oats, and yogurt. You can use the milk and yogurt of your choice. You can also experiment with the toppings and make it to your liking. I like to add almond or peanut butter to my oats as well! What are your favorite combinations?

1/3 cup rolled oats
1/3 – 1/2 cup milk [depending on how thick you like it] *
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1/2 banana
1/2 tbsp chia seeds
Pinch salt
Pinch cinnamon

Stir everything together in a bowl. Place in fridge overnight. In the morning top with something crunchy and something with healthy fats – like nut butter or nuts.

    Love overnight oats! I like to add frozen berries the night before then top with granola in the morning. It’s like a healthy, protein packed yogurt parfait and keeps me full all morning
