Overnight Oatmeal

Monday, June 1, 2015

Mornings before work can be hectic. I feel like I am always in race to get out of my apartment and on the road for work before 8:15 a.m. However, I sometimes hit the snooze button a few too many times and stumble out of my apartment at 8:30 a.m. (most likely without coffee and breakfast).

But now thanks to this simple and tasty recipe for overnight oatmeal, I am never without breakfast before work. All you need are a few simple ingredients to make this heart healthy, tasty and fast breakfast!

Overnight Oatmeal

{yield: 1 serving}

⅓ cup rolled oats
⅓ cup almond milk (any type of milk will work)
⅓ cup vanilla Greek yogurt
1 tsp. chia seeds
¼ cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
drizzle of agave syrup, honey or brown sugar

Start with a pint size mason jar or any cup with a sealable lid/top. Then add ⅓ cup of rolled oats (not instant!), ⅓ cup of almond milk, ⅓ cup of vanilla Greek yogurt and top off with a teaspoon of chia seeds.

Mix all the ingredients together, cover with a lid and place in the refrigerator for 6 to 8 hours or overnight. The next morning remove jar from the fridge, top with blueberries and drizzle with agave syrup, honey or a spoon of brown sugar for sweetness. 

Overnight oats are meant to be eaten cold, but can be microwaved if you prefer them hot! Now if you are not a fan of blueberries, feel free to change it and add bananas or apples to your the oatmeal "base." The beauty is that this recipe gives you the freedom to jazz up your oats with whatever you are in the mood for that day!
