Talk about an easy breakfast! If you aren’t familiar with overnight oats here is a quick overview as to what they are. Instead of cooking your oats with liquid on the stove or in the microwave, you mix rolled (AKA: old-fashioned) oats with the liquid and other mix-ins, and let it rest in the fridge overnight. In the morning, you have a delicious pudding-like porridge that is perfect for easy grab-and-go breakfasts. It doesn’t have the same texture as hot/stove-top oats. It’s creamier, denser, and a whole lot better!
Here are three different varieties, but the options are endless! This is the website where you can find all 20 different recipes.
