I know we all have out own version of overnight oats. The recipe is simple, but the quantities of ingredients used can vary as well as the flavor profiles. I generally use Greek yogurt, vanilla or strawberry. If I use plain Greek yogurt, I will stir in maple syrup or honey for a sweeter flavor. Toppings always include berries, granola, and a drizzle of honey.
It’s a healthy, prep-ahead breakfast that is incredibly versatile. I know overnight oats are nothing new, and most of you have probably already made some as well. But, I wanted to share my oats to yogurt to oat (or almond) milk ratio. In addition, often you will see overnight oats made in jars. I always prep ours in bowls for easy eating in the morning. I find it easier to eat out of a wide set bowl. (And it leaves room for more toppings, wink wink.)
I know we are all still filled with anxiety right now, and things will not be the same for a long time to come. However, prepping a healthy breakfast the night before can help relieve an added anxiety in the morning and help you start your day on the right foot. Self care is so vital right now. Remember to put good things in your body and your mind.
