It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of easy and delicious recipes! Overnight oats are absolutely no exception. In fact, when I originally discovered how amazing they were I ate them for days on end. I’ve tried SO many variations, but here is my favorite concoction! If you don’t like to spend hours cooking it up n the kitchen then you have come to the perfect place! This yummy overnight oats recipes comes together in a flash. You won’t even see it coming! Let’s head on over to the kitchen for a quick trip!
Quick Breakfast with Overnight Oats
Eat Your Way Fit
Breakfast is crucial. There are no two ways about it. It’s not so much that it is more important than other meals. However, it has a way of setting us up for the day. A healthy breakfast leads to a healthy snack and I am sure you can see where I am headed with this. No breakfast or an un-healthy one kinds of leaves us in catch up mode for the day.
I do not want that to be you or me! But I fully recognize that making a full gourmet breakfast everyday might not be the most realistic thing to attempt. Our mornings are very hectic and there is so much to prepare for the day. Some of us are even going to the gym in the morning! Hats off to you – you deserve this delicious recipe sitting in your fridge waiting for you as a reward.
Overnight oats are the epitome of easy and simple. Whip them up at night or just a few hours before you want to dig in. The magic of the chia seeds churns its alchemy and we somehow get this amazing treat. Magic, I tell you, magic! Here at The Bikini Experiment we frown upon excess hours banging the pots and pans. However, we want all of our food to fuel our fitness and healthy lifestyle goals.
