Do you miss those easy, instant oatmeal packets you could buy in a box and make in minutes? You don’t have to! You can make them up in minutes and store them in the freezer for an easy grab-n-cook breakfast, or better yet, for overnight oats!
Overnight oats are fabulous things simply because they are so darn easy and convenient. I mean, who doesn’t love the idea of breakfast already being ready for you first thing in the morning? These are great served cold out of the fridge on a hot summer morning, or warmed in a pot or the microwave on chillier mornings.
You just combine the oats with the milk of your choosing in a jar, then let it sit, covered, in the fridge overnight. In the morning when you get up, your oats are all ready to go!
In fact, just like I did with the sheet pan dinners (I’ve got more coming too!), I’m going to do an entire series on these. So stay tuned for more flavor combinations in the coming days ahead!
