Where my early risers at? If you are an early bird like me and have to leave the house before the sun rises, this recipe is for you as it requires ZERO MORNING PREP TIME. That’s right. Oatmeal may be up there with one of my favorite winter warmers, but overnight oats are where it is at in the summer time & in fact, any season when you want a healthy, substantial meal…without all the extra work of cooking, cleaning or planning!
With a few simple ingredients, that you no doubt have in your pantry already and some planning ahead, you’ll have breakfast (or dessert) planned for the week. As long as you get those oats in the fridge overnight (or for 4 hours at least) all you’ll have left to do is wake, eat and enjoy! No cooking required.
As with any recipe, the “health factor” is up to you. You can add almost anything to your oats and they will taste deliciously sweet, but if you’re looking for the perfectly sweet & salty combo, my PB & J recipe is for you. This well-balanced breakfast contains carbs, fat, protein, and fiber.
