Easy Overnight Oatmeal makes an easy and healthy start to your day. They are full of flavor and nutrients and require very little prep time.
Easy Overnight Oatmeal is simply old-fashioned rolled oats that are soaked overnight in a healthy mixture of milk and yogurt. Add in any flavor combination you like and you have an instant, easy, healthy breakfast that you don’t have to spend any morning minutes on.
I love, love, love Overnight Oats!
After a run for optimum muscle recovery, studies show that the intake of protein within an hour of stopping helps muscle recovery. In the past, I have enjoyed my favorite protein shake.
Recently, I tried Easy Overnight Oatmeal. To be honest, more for the convenience factor than anything else. My morning goes like this 4:30: get up, get dressed, run, finish run and stretch, check blog emails, start breakfast for boys, shower, dress, start boys lunches and finish making breakfast, wake boys, feed them, finish packing their lunches and help them get ready, take them to school. We have it down to the minute and there is no extra time for me to make myself breakfast (and no I don’t want to have biscuits or pancakes with them). Being able to grab a protein shake or Easy Overnight Oatmeal is ideal.
I tried it for convenience. But, now, I actually love it. It’s my new obsession. I also have it for a mid-afternoon snack. I’ve found if I have a healthy snack I’m not tempted to eat the boys Little Debi snacks.
The first time I made them I made the oats in a jelly jar that had just a tiny bit of jelly left in it.
It gave the oats a great flavor!
The oatmeal is not thick, if you like a thicker consistency use a little less milk.
Delicious!!! My new addiction!
This is the second batch I made in a mason jar.
