Many don’t realize this but my blog was started based off of overnight oats. That’s right, good old overnight oats were the main reason I even started blogging or my sharing my food on Instagram.
I would only share recipes that included oatmeal in it but overnight oats were my specialty. I have been prepping these for breakfast since I graduated college (aka one too many years ago). I used to eat them at my desk or on the bus on my commute to work. My co-workers looked at me like I was complete nuts and would tell me I am eating mush.
To be honest, it totally used to affect me. I’d get so worked up that people would mock my food and had something to say. Fast forward to today and I cannot even believe I am sharing all of my food with YOU! By doing this it has truly made me so much more confident in what I eat and doesn’t have me seconding guessing my taste. If someone has something to say that isn’t kind, I politely giggle and move the beep on!
Today I am shared my Classic Overnight Oats recipe with you, but it has a bit of a twist to it since I first started making it 6 years ago.
We still use the basics of oatmeal (uncooked), nut milk, chia seeds, etc. But we have the addition of Organic MCT Oil in it. I recently tried Nutiva Organic MCT Oil that recently launched and it is so good. Jord absolutely loves using it in his coffee and smoothies. I prefer it in my overnight oats for a quick and easy way to sneak it in my eats.
