Overnight Oats.

Overnight oats are my fav. I literally get so excited when I wake up in the morning and I have overnight oats waiting for me.

Who created this amazing concoction?!

I started making these a few years back when I got knee-deep into one of my many health kicks and it has been one of my habits that have really stuck through the years. And why not? Oats are fairly inexpensive and you only need a few other ingredients to complete the mixture and a little patience and commitment to let it sit in the fridge overnight.

My mixture: 

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • dash of cinnamon
  • a few sprinkles of chia seeds, flax seeds, and coconut flakes (I buy a mixture from Sam’s club)
  • Blueberries (amount to own desire)

I’ve also played around with adding honey, maple syrup, pumpkin spice, vanilla extract, bananas, strawberries, and frozen mixed berries in the past but the above ingredients are my tired and true.

Nella, the pug babe, also enjoys the overnight oats because she usually gets a few blueberries herself while I am mixing it up in the evening.

What is your favorite morning meal? I love quick and simple during the week but on the weekends I’m all about cooking a well rounded, elaborate breakfast!

Namaste loves. Now I’m heading back to my tea and watching The Great British Baking Show.
