Breakfast is the most important meal of the day: that’s what they say right? When I was younger I was never really a “breakfast person”. I always felt like I was too rushed in the morning to make anything substantial, so half the time I just didn’t bother eating. When I started college, however, I started noticing that I was really hungry during my morning classes and needed to get into the breakfast groove. Alas: I was introduced to overnight oats and it totally changed my feelings on breakfast. Not only was it healthy, but I was able to make it in 2 minutes at night and have breakfast ready for the next day.
Today, I am a strong promoter of oatmeal and eat it basically every day. Some days I make it hot (like this), but most days, I choose to eat overnight oats, which are a cold version of oatmeal that kind of taste like a parfait. Don’t knock it till you try it. Overnight oats are creamy, sweet, and crazy good. The best part? You make them at night so you don’t have to worry about getting anything out in the morning. Now that I’ve been making overnight oats for the past few years, I wake up excited about breakfast since it’s stress-free & already made. This recipe literally does all of the work while you sleep, what could be better than that?? Most times, I even make it in a mason jar so that it’s easily transportable wherever I go. Just pop on a lid, grab a spoon, and head out the door.
