INSTRUCTIONS
  1. First, you need a little jar to seal it up in. Mason jars work perf.

  5. I then drizzled in some honey over the top.

  6. Mix your ingredients as much as you can and seal your jar. Place in the fridge overnight or for at least a couple of hours.

Add your oats to the jar.


This is the base of any overnight oatmeal. If you don’t have honey, you could totally do agave or brown sugar.


Then I added the almond butter which made it suuuuuper creamy. So if you’re into a thicc type of oatmeal, definitely add nut butter.


Then add the milk of your choice. My go-to is almond milk but oat milk is even yummier, especially for overnight oats. Oat milk.. oats.. you get it.


I then drizzled in some honey over the top.


I was cute and I got this beautifully layered pic.


I was super ~silly~ and I put them in the fridge just like this. Luckily, I looked it up right before going up to my bed and found out I should mix them! So I gave it a quick mix and waited til the morning.


This is where you can get as creative as you want.


I added some strawberries and kept them in the jar for the aesthetic. Depending on how big your jar is you might want to transplant it to something different before enjoying it!


To top it all off I added some almonds for a crunch and a drizzle of honey for some more sweetness.


Throw the lid on and be right out the door.


This recipe is perfect to grab out of the fridge in a rush and heat up at work while you check your emails. It’s really perfect for anyone. I could see moms prepping this the night before for their kid’s breakfasts. I definitely recommend trying them and mixing them up! Add some chocolate chunks, more fruit, or different sweeteners.


Your overnight oats should last at least two-three days in the fridge.


I highly recommend this recipe for someone who wants a nutritious breakfast but doesn’t have the time to whip it together in the morning!
