Overnight Oats

We’ve heard it said many times: breakfast is the most important meal of the day. As students, we need the fuel from food to get our brains fired up on all cylinders in the morning so that we are ready for classes. Sometimes the morning can be such a rush that it can be hard to put a breakfast together, especially one that is nutritionally balanced. Lucky for you, we’ve got an overnight oats recipe that makes for a super simple, nourishing, and quick breakfast. These oats are easy to dress up and can include nut butters or chopped nuts, different fruit, yogurt, milk or a milk alternative, honey or maple syrup—the options are endless, so you’ll never get bored! Eaten cold out of the fridge or warmed up in the microwave, overnight oats can also last up to three days, making them an accessible option for a nutritious breakfast.
