Dessert for Breakfast- 5 Quick & Easy Overnight Oats Recipes

Discovering overnight oats has been huge for me. For one, I am not a morning person. I wake up, hit the snooze button a few times, and get up at the very last minute with just enough time to get dressed and out the door. With that said, I never have time to make a nutritious breakfast. Which brings me to my second problem- I hate breakfast. Now don’t get me wrong- it’s not that I don’t like breakfast foods, it’s just that I typically don’t have the appetite to eat so early after I wake up so I usually just opt for a cup of coffee and maybe a banana or granola bar. I know it’s not the healthiest of options, which is why I’ve decided to make changes in my diet and live a healthier lifestyle.

If you’re a Pinterest fan, overnight oats are pinned in abundance and honestly, they all look so delicious that it’s hard to narrow down which recipes to try. But I can attest that not only are they extremely yummy, but they’re extremely easy to make. So easy that there’s no excuse not to make it and the best part of all- they taste like dessert! For those of you who don’t care for oatmeal, I can promise that you will be converted into an instant fan. I’ve rounded up (5) of the best overnight oats recipes that all require no cooking whatsoever. All you need are the ingredients mixed together in a bowl topped with a lid and refrigerate overnight.

    • Thank you! I will definitely check out your post as well. Muesli is actually my favorite cereal besides plain granola. I’ve never cared for sugary cereals, even as a kid.
