Classic Overnight Oats: The Breakfast Staple

GRAB AND GO BREAKFAST WEEK BABY!! The most wonderful theme week ever if you ask me. But I am pretty sure I will be saying that about every single theme week imaginable ha!

Breakfast is my calling and my favorite food group always. And if you have been a blog reader since day 1 (which I am assuming is a no unless you are my mom, Jord or MIL), you would know that overnight oats are the reason why I started my blog and my love with all things recipe developing. It’s crazy, I know.  But I chat more about that in my cookbook.

Let’s stay focused on the golden star of breakfast prep: OVERNIGHT OATS! Truly a game changer breakfast if you are looking for something to make early in the week and have all week long. And if you want something that you can grab and go and take with you on the run. Whether your commuting on a train, walking to school, anything you can eat this breakfast. If I am taking it on the go, I like to make them in a mason jar or tupperware of sorts so it is really easy to take. Or if I am home, I add it to a bowl if I want to feel fancy and then add in all of my desired toppings.

Here’s why overnight oats rock:

  1. They are EASY to make. 5 minutes to prep and you can quadruple a batch if you want to have all week long.
  2. It is hard to get sick of these too because you can switch things up to make them exciting. Use a different nut milk, switch up the toppings, fruit or anything. You can also add in different seeds like flaxseed if you want too instead of chia or in addition.
  3. You can eat them on the run. Like we spoke of earlier, you can walk to school or work with them, easily ride the train or bus with them, anything you want!
  4. I find them pretty cost effective. Oats are an affordable staple and you only need to add some milk and seeds for the classic recipe. Plus the vanilla and cinnamon if you want, which is a pantry staple for most already. Chia seeds are a bit of an investment but they stay good for so long. Just keep them in the fridge.
