Overnight Oats of the Week

JUMP TO RECIPE


Overnight oats are my go to breakfast during the school week. They're filling, versatile, healthy, and easy. Since I'm not always a morning person, making my breakfast ahead of time makes my life so much easier. Overnight oats are super versatile and easy. All you do is add your base of oats, mix in your favorite toppings, flavors, and top with fruit, yogurt, granola, or nuts. Let it chill in the fridge overnight and in the morning you have breakfast. This recipe has 5 different recipes for the work week. You can totally personalize them and add whatever else you like. These recipes can also easily be made vegan by omitting the Greek yogurt as a topping. When making the overnight oats, you can either make them Sunday night for the rest of the week or the night before you want them for breakfast. It takes about 15 minutes to make your breakfast for the week. This way you can sleep in a longer in the morning. Sounds like a win-win situation to me.
