Overnight Oats

After seeing numerous postings about overnight oats, I decided to make some for my husband and me. It is an easy and nutritious breakfast that can be prepared in advance! Play with the ingredients and add your favorite fruits/whatever you need in your diet.

Overnight Oats (1 Individual Serving)

- 1/4c Oats
- 1/2-3/4c Almond Milk (I use unsweetened vanilla)
- 1/4tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1/2 Sliced Banana
- 3/4c Sliced Strawberries
- 1/4tsp Cinnamon
- 1 tsp Chia Seeds (Health Benefits)
 Note: Chia seeds will become like tapicoa when sitting in liquid, if you don't like that texture add the seeds in the morning!
- Honey 
- 1-2 tbsp Chopped Almonds
- 1/2 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder (Optional)
- 1 tbsp Dark Chocolate Chips (Optional)
- 1/4c Blueberries (Optional)
  1. Mix together your spices, milk, oats, seeds, and stir.
  2. Top mixture with fruit and nuts and store overnight.
  3. Drizzle oatmeal with honey and enjoy!
