Breakfast is by far my favourite meal of the day. While I do enjoy a nice lunch and delicious dinner and even the odd brunch, it’s the early morning meal that really does it for me.
Sitting down to my steaming mug of coffee and giant bowl of cereal while catching up on my blog and newspaper reading is something I look forward to every weekend. But who has the time for this leisurely lounging during the busy work week? Not I, that’s for sure! So in an effort to fill that void of my treasured breakfast weekend routine, I discovered that a little prep work the night before can let you enjoy a healthy and comforting breakfast, even during the busiest of rush hour mornings.
Overnight oatmeal is just oats soaked overnight in a mixture of yogurt and milk. After sitting in the fridge overnight, the oats soak up all the liquid and become thick and chewy. The best part is you can customize the bowl however you like it. I prefer Greek yogurt and almond milk for their richness, but you can use any yogurt and milk that you like. And then the toppings and add-ins are endless!
These cold and creamy oats are the perfect warm weather breakfast meal that will get your busy work day off to the right start!
