Strawberry Overnight Oats

I go through cycles with my oatmeal.  When I have a lot of bananas on hand, I make my
Perfect Morning Oats.  Sometimes I'll be in a steel cut oats mood, so I'll make this or
this.  When we have guests over I'll make baked oatmeal, but lately I've been craving
overnight oats and now that strawberries are in season I decided to make strawberry
overnight oats.  I think in may be my new favorite!

Strawberry Overnight Oats





















Preparing overnight oats one or two evenings a week saves time, energy and money!
You can even hit that snooze button once or twice since your breakfast is already to go!


Strawberry Overnight Oats





















I don't care for cold oats, so I microwave the jar of oats for about 45 seconds to take
the chill off.  Then I add a few chopped pecans or walnuts and a dash of almond milk
and breakfast is served! If I'm in a hurry I just pop the jar into my lunch bag and then
enjoy my breakfast at my desk when I get to work. Yum!

What type of fruit do you add to your oats?

Combine ingredients into a pint size mason jar.

Refrigerate overnight.

Enjoy cold or warm in a microwave for 45 seconds.
