This is a quick and healthy Overnight Oats recipe to get your morning going on the right foot. I have seen several recipes in blog land, but I tweaked this one a bit to make it my own. You mix it all up the night before, and let it sit in the refrigerator overnight...then in the morning you are good to go. It makes a lot and was very filling. Mine ended up being a breakfast/lunch combo.
3/4 cup 1% Milk (or vanilla almond milk)
1/2 cup Old-Fashioned Oats (I used instant oats because that's all I had - either is fine)
1 container Chobani Strawberry/Banana Greek Yogurt
1 Tbs. Ground Flaxseed
1 Tbs. Agave Nectar
The night before I mixed 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup oats, and 1 container of greek yogurt, and 1 Tbs. Flaxseed. I covered it and let it sit in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning I took it out and added 1/4 cup milk & 1 Tbs. agave nectar. Mix it all up, and eat cold.
*I may use less Agave Nectar next time - it was a little bit too sweet for me, but still yummy!*
I'm trying to incorporate healthier items into our diet, and this is a great breakfast option. I would definitely split it into two meals, it's great the next day.

Now, I'm off to bake Cinn-A-Rolls. Not so healthy, but a fun All-Natural treat!
