How to Make Overnight Oats

Popular and super healthy.
 Overnight Oats 
Overnight oats are gaining popularity right now. Super easy to make and super healthy.
You just mix together the ingredients in a mason jar or any other container with a lid, put in the frig overnight ... and in the morning you have a fresh, great tasting breakfast. The oats soak up the moisture from the yogurt, milk etc and soften up just as if you cooked them. This meal is meant to be eaten cold, straight from the frig, and it is delicious!  Here's how ...


Eat it at home, or grab your jar and take it with you.
Absolutely delicious. Kid's love their breakfast in a jar too!

Here's How ...

  • Put 1/2 cup of oatmeal in a 16 oz canning jar.
  • Add 1 cup of milk. (cows, soy, coconut, almond, your choice)
  • Add fruit,(your choice). Here I added fresh strawberries and fresh blueberries.
  • Cover and place in frig over night.
  • Take out in the morning and enjoy breakfast!

The additions and combinations are countless, choose your favorites and design your own overnight oats.

 Here's Why ...
Oats are an important source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants as well as a rich source of a fiber called beta glucan ...

"Italian researchers  reviewed existing research about the positive effects of beta glucan on human health. They found that, in addition to reducing cholesterol and blunting glycemic and insulin response, beta glucans boost defenses of the immune system against bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites." Minerva Medica June 2009; 100(3):237-45

Enjoy!  .... Anna
