While I was reading my book last night, I decided I need some overnight oats for breakfast today.
So I got up, mixed them up, and they were in the fridge waiting on me this morning.
Best. Thing. Ever.
Breakfast waiting on me? That’s something I could get used to.
All I had to do was add some of my homemade yogurt, fresh fruit and nuts, and I was ready to eat.
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup milk
- pinch salt
- chia seeds
The oat mixture thickens up overnight and softens the oats to a fluffy and doughy consistency.
Right before eating this morning, I added the rest:
- plain yogurt (made in the crockpot yesterday!)
- local blueberries
- local peach
- 1 Tbsp pecans
The best thing about overnight oats? It takes no time to mix them up the night before. So as long as you remember to actually get it mixed up, you’re all set in the morning.
Have you tried overnight oats yet?
What’s your favorite combination?
