No-Cook Overnight Oats

Let’s get real with each other.  The less we have to cook, the better, right?

It’s no secret that as an EoE mom, or food blogger, or just a person trying eat REAL foods, I have too many dishes.

With my switch to a full-time working mom (outside of the home), I know it’s about to get crazy, so I’m trying to develop some on-the-go type recipes.  While I’ll be working at Whole Foods, I’ll still probably be bringing a lot of my own food.  I know salads will be my go-to, and for breakfast, I’ll be grabbing a smoothie or a green drink and these overnight oats.

OO

For this recipe, you really do just throw all the ingredients in a mason jar, stir it up, put the top on, and leave it in the fridge overnight.  You never cook it.  And yes, it tastes amazing!

Another thing I love about this recipe is that it is very inexpensive…a bag of rolled oats are only around $6 and will last a long time..plus they are versatile!!!

This would be a great recipe to start building routines around…after you make them, you’ll see how easy it is (LESS THAN 5 MINUTES TO MAKE), and since it’s a cheap meal, there really is no excuse as to why we can’t have hearty, protein filled, whole food, plant strong meals!

Optional toppings:

-fresh fruit

coconut cream

-nuts

-almond butter/peanut butter

Note:

You can make several at one time and they keep well in the fridge for the week!
