Overnight Oats are the best thing that’s ever happened to my breakfasts. Seriously. I made overnight oats for the first time last month and was blown away by how easy and delicious they are. I love that you can throw the mason jar in your bag and bring breakfast to work. If I’ve slept in or have an early meeting, I’ll bring Overnight Oats to work and chow them at my desk.
