These oatmeal cookie overnight oats are the perfect nourishing, yet indulgent breakfast to wake up to – They’re packed full of protein and flavor, and they taste like oatmeal cookie dough!
Sorry for the rather long absence lately, but health and family have taken priority, so my little blog suffered in the midst.
Currently, I’m working to heal myself while still juggling the kids and homeschooling, so my schedule is tight, to say the least.
Jade and Nat are both learning so much more than they were online or even when they actually attended school, so it’s very rewarding in that manner.
I have some new recipes to post, but I’m also updating some oldies like today’s overnight oats.
This recipe has been a favorite around here for years, so I’m happy to be resharing it today.
What Are Overnight Oats?
When I first entered the food blogging world, overnight oats were all the rage!
They are a take on a Swiss classic called Bircher Muesli, which is a combination of oats, fruit, and yogurt.
While this recipe doesn’t much resemble the original version, it is still a delicious way to wake up, and it truly tastes like oatmeal cookie dough!
Do you eat it cold?
Aside from it’s deliciousness, the whole point of overnight oats is that you prepare it the night before so that you can wake up to a ready-made breakfast.
