This girl has finally joined the ranks of health bloggers everywhere, and have jumped head first into the craze that is overnight oats.
There’s a reason for the craze folks. Overnight oats are DELICIOUS. They are easy. They have good for you. They are versatile. Basically, they are everything you want in a breakfast food- or dinner food, if like me you skip them for breakfast one day you crave oatmeal so bad you make oatmeal for dinner. Totally acceptable.
That’s the only photo I have of my amazing oats, due to the fact that I am not a food photographer (yet??). Therefore, my overnight oats in the old Tupperware I’ve always been using don’t look incredible appetizing and don’t do them justice.
So how do I do my overnight oats? Great question! I use 1/3 cup of steel oats and 2/3 cup of skim milk, and have tried all the combinations below! 1/3 of a cup of oats doesn’t seem like a lot, but the steel cut compared to the quick oats fill you up WAY more. I have to yet to find a version that I DON’T like! Have a favorite? Share in the comments!

Clearly you get the idea. Chia seeds and flax seeds are always a good choice. Bananas are always a good choice. And any form of nut, dried fruit, or various sweeteners work as well! See what I mean by versatile? Things I haven’t tried yet that I want to include (not all at the same time, eww) instant coffee (obviously), jam, using a chai instead of milk, and using other types of dried and fresh fruit!
TGIF, am I right? Hope everyone has a lovely weekend :)
