The Best Overnight Oats: simple & healthy breakfast
Oatmeal is one of those “stick-to-your-guns” kind of breakfast that I know will fuel me through the morning. Problem is, I don’t always have the time in the morning. I will savor that extra 10 minutes of sleep knowing I have breakfast ready to go waiting for me. I’ll even sacrifice doing my hair in the morning for extra sleep. Top buns for the win.

Half the time I am so rushed in the morning, I drink my coffee on the way to work and then eat my breakfast as I am returning emails and getting organized for my day.

This recipe is packed with ingredients you can feel good about. Filled with fiber & protein, it will keep you full all morning. Overnight, the oats absorb all the liquid and it becomes a thick cake batter consistency.

I always like adding a little extra fruit on top. And if I am feeling a little indulgent, I’ll stir in a little unsweetened cocoa powder for a chocolate peanut butter flavor!
