Simple Overnight Oats

A Few Words…

Do you have a favorite breakfast?

There’s something about oatmeal that’s so satisfying and gives me staying power all day long. Although I love hot oatmeal and steel cut oats, I do like variety and often will make overnight oatmeal.

How do you like your oats? There are so many different ways to make it and by changing up even one ingredient, it will be like having a new breakfast everyday.

By preparing your breakfast the night before, you won’t be rushed in the morning and will still have plenty of time to get your other morning chores done.

As long as you remember the night before to make it, you’re good to go in the morning!
