If your mornings are hectic, you might think it’s practically impossible to make a healthy breakfast. It might feel that way sometimes (kids! pets! workouts! nothing to wear!), but if you make your breakfast the night before, you’ll have a nutritious and tasty meal waiting for you first thing in the morning.
One of my favorite make-ahead breakfasts is overnight oats. Never tried them before? Well, you’re in for a treat. You might be used to making your oatmeal on the stove top or in the microwave, but soaking them overnight makes them just as smooth and creamy as traditional methods. You can even make multiple batches ahead of time, so all you have to do is open the fridge and grab a spoon in the morning. That said, here are 6 incredibly delicious overnight oatmeal recipes that you will love!
