I love starting my day with this healthy overnight oats recipe for a tasty and healthy and EASY breakfast! It is such a fantastic 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.
