Hi loves! This is the easiest breakfast recipe ever! Even better, you make it the night before, so it’s ready to eat when you wake up.  It’s quick, convenient and did I mention it takes like a dessert?!  You have to try it!

Ingredients:

1/4 cup steel cut oats (you can use old fashioned oats, but I love the texture of the steel cut.  If you choose to use old fashioned, make sure that they’re not quick cooking or instant)

1/4 cup unsweetened original almond milk

1/4 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt

2 tsp. chia seeds

1 tbsp. unsweetened shredded coconut

1 tsp. pure maple syrup

1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 cup of fresh or frozen blueberries

Instructions:

I use mason jars for my overnight oats, but as long as you have some kind of container with an airtight lid you’ll be fine.  Add the oats, almond milk, Greek yogurt, chia seeds, coconut, vanilla and blueberries to the container of your choice.

Put the lid on and shake until everything is well combined.  Put it in the refrigerator before bedtime, and it’ll be ready to eat when you wake up.

Enjoy!
