Overnight oats, how do I love thee….
I can’t remember where I discovered this luscious breakfast, but it has changed my life! The chewy oats soak in a base of milk, yogurt, and honey overnight, affording you a deliciously sweet and creamy morning meal that takes NO effort and minimal clean-up.
Though eating cold oats might be off-putting to some of you, I implore you to try it…just once. You won’t be disappointed.

This is my favorite, most basic recipe, so feel free to add your choice of mix-ins, such as fresh/dried fruit, nuts, seeds, nut butters, cocoa or carob powder…the possibilities are endless! I happen to enjoy it just like this….
This recipe is great for the upcoming summer, as it can be somewhat difficult to stomach hot oatmeal when it’s 90 degrees outside! I know there are other activities we’d prefer…
I hope you guys enjoy!
