overnight oats.

my friend Courtney got me hooked on overnight oats recently and we've been doing a bit of experimenting with them ever since. so i thought i'd share one that's become a hit over here.

// overnight oats //

1/2-3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup milk of choice
1 tsp vanilla
1-2 tsp nutmeg
1-2 tsp cinnamon
1-2 tsp milled flax seed
chocolate chips
half well-ripened banana
spoonful of peanut butter/almond butter
spoonful of plain greek yogurt

fill your favorite mason jar with rolled oats 1/2-3/4 of the way full. cover the oats with your milk of choice. splash with a tsp of vanilla, mix in your nutmeg, cinnamon, flax seed, and chocolate chips, as well as your banana (make sure you mash it up a bit). then add your spoonfuls of yogurt and almond butter/peanut butter. just shake it all up and leave it in the refrigerator overnight! enjoy your yummy oats right out of the jar in the morning!

we are loving this quick and easy breakfast! do you have any overnight oats recipes to share? or any other easy breakfast ideas? i'd love to hear them!

p.s. be on the lookout for a giveaway coming up!
