Not have enough time to make a wholesome breakfast every morning? Enjoy this overnight oats recipe that you can make the night before to help power you through your busy morning.
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.
Skip those instant oatmeal packets. They are typically loaded with added sugar and even salt! 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.
You could always heat the oats up, but I enjoy them cold. Of course this recipe can be easily adapted with your favorite fix-ins. 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!
