I love starting my day with a healthy overnight oats breakfast! It is such an easy breakfast option that involves no prep in the morning, which I love!
I am all about anything that I can make ahead in a quiet moment to make the hectic moments less crazy. And now that I’m getting not one, but two kids breakfast every morning breakfast time can get uh, overwhelming, to say the least.
You can also make ahead a whole week of these easy overnight oats and then have all your healthy breakfasts prepped for the week! You are so smart.
This easy make ahead oatmeal is perfect for when you need something mindless to grab and you don’t want it to be a pop-tart! Or when your kids are crying and you just need something for everyone to eat FAST!
