Overnight Oats

I love these overnight oats so much that I could eat them several times a day.  They are made ahead of time so it is easy to grab them on the way out the door in the morning.  I found this particular recipe on 100 Days of Real Food.  It is much better for you than store bought granola bars or cereal. Tastes better too!


Ingredients
1/2 cup of rolled oats
1/2 cup of milk
1 tablespoon of plain yogurt
1-2 tablespoons of raisins
1/2 teaspoon of honey
1/8 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
2-3 pinches of cinnamon

Mix the ingredients in a mason jar or other small container.  Refrigerate for at least five hours or overnight.



Don't worry if they seem soupy at first, they will be great in the morning!

  5. I've always read about overnight oats but never tried them myself. Do you warm them up in the morning or eat them cold?

    1. I eat them cold but some people warm them. I don't really like warm oatmeal that much but I love this because it is cold. Thanks for stopping by!
