Recipe: Overnight Oats + 4 Topping Ideas!

Hey muffins! Living in an apartment off campus has been great, as I don't have to deal with the hub-bub that comes with being on campus. ๐ŸŽ‰ I also get to cook all of my meals for myself, which I love because I can eat healthy and take time to ensure I am getting the nutrients I need. While my breakfast is usually Cheerios, I will sometimes make some overnight oats instead. ๐Ÿฅฃ These are great when I know I am going to be in a rush, so I wanted to share the simple recipe with you all!

What You Need
-1/2 cup rolled oats (I either buy from the bulk bins or the largest cylinder container they have!)
-1/2 cup almond milk
-Mason jar (or other glass container)

What To Do
1. Pour the oats into the mason jar.
2. Add the almond milk on top and seal the jar.
3. Pop in the fridge to set overnight.
4. In the morning, mix with a spoon and add in the toppings (see below!). If you don't want to eat from the jar, feel free to pour into a bowl.
5. Enjoy!

TOPPINGS
~Add in some frozen fruit slices! I typically choose banana, as I like to freeze slices of them whenever they are getting too brown for my liking. As overnight oats are already cold, the frozen fruit fits right in!

~A small scoop of natural jelly or homemade jam. I shared my fast and easy strawberry sauce recipe over the summer, which is perfect to add some sweetness to the oats. As I am trying to avoid added sugars right now, the smaller the scoop the better. ๐Ÿ˜Š

~Dash of maple syrup! This is a classic combo, so I would definitely recommend giving it a try!

~Sprinkle of brown sugar or honey. If you love your oatmeal sweet, then try adding in some type of sugar. I am a huge fan of brown sugar, but honey works too!
