Most days of the week we are on the go so breakfast isn't always a sit down four hour event like it is on the weekends. I'm usually the last to feed myself and I hate skipping breakfast, so I love overnight oats. It's like a parfait with extra points because it has soaked oats and I love oatmeal. Not everyone loves it but I can tell ya, my kids do! Not mention it's a great sweet treat after dinner.
There are so many ways to make these oats, you can customize to your families tastes and favorites. We keep it simple in our house with these ingredients:
2 cups of oats
2 1/2 cups of milk
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
dash of cinnamon
drizzle of vanilla extract
6 cups of Activia Yogurt
fruit of choice [optional]
I like my oats to be a little soft in the morning so I throw everything except the yogurt and fresh fruit into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for two minutes. This recipe is easy to remember because there are a lot of twos in it. Mix this up.
Take six little mason jars and put half of the yogurt cup in the bottom. Layer with the oat and liquid mixture. Top with the rest of the yogurt.
I like to have a little yogurt in every bite. Put it in the refrigerator overnight and the oats will be just the perfect texture and softness. It is so yummy!! There you go, you've got 6 breakfasts and snacks."
Really appreciate you stopping by! Until next time.
