Top 3 Overnight Oats Recipes


Overnight oats is a fantastic, easy, and delicious way to have a nutritious breakfast. I've always loved overnight oats and have grown a new appreciation for them as I was enrolled in 7:00 a.m. classes at university. This being said, I needed something quick to grab in the morning when stuck in a hazy dream filled state. Overnight oats is prepared the night before being eaten leaving, placed in the refrigerator to chill and soften overnight, and can be enjoyed both warm or cold in the morning. Overnight oats are very convenient for living in a dorm as you do not need any appliances to make them nor do you need a kitchen. Keep reading to find out my top three favorite ways to flavor overnight oats.
