Overnight Oats is one of my absolute favorite things. It means breakfast is ready and waiting for me. Whether it is after a workout or just before my day begins, I love having someone make breakfast for me. (Ok, so the someone is my past self……but it still counts 😉 ) The variations on overnight oats is positively endless and you could eat it every single day, and yet STILL never eat the same recipe twice.

 

Overnight Oats

1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup unsweetened plain greek yogurt 1/4-1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp flax seeds

Mix everything all together and store in the refrigerator. You can add diced apple, or top with blackberries or strawberries (one of my favorites!) You can also add unsweetened shredded coconut and use unsweetened coconut milk in place of the almond milk. A scoop of protein powder can be added for extra protein. The possibilities are really endless for variations!
