Back to School Busyness Breakfast Recipe: Overnight Oats

Standard

It’s been a while since I’ve written a recipe blog for you all and with back-to-school and work seriousness on our horizon, I thought “What better time to start featuring recipes?!” This recipe is made overnight! Imagine that—preparing your breakfast before bed and waking up to amazing deliciousness. What I am referring to, why Overnight Oats!

My friends at Quaker inspired me to start making overnight oats for my girls and me.

Prepared in three easy steps and enjoyed in endless flavor varieties, overnight oats are the satisfyingly chilled, on-the-go breakfast for summer mornings. Made with Quaker Old Fashioned Oats, milk, yogurt or any dairy alternative, along with some nutritious add-ons, this delicious breakfast will help you and your followers start the day with 40 grams of whole grains and 4 grams of fiber to help keep you full through the morning. Their website has a dozen of recipes. Check them out here.

But first, see what I did!
