Enjoy these Healthy Berry Overnight Oats for breakfast any day of the week. Made with only 5 simple ingredients – they’re the perfect way to start the day!
I’m about to totally change the back-to-school breakfast game with these overnight oats, guys. Even though I’m not going back to school, I still feel like I should be.. it’s so weird to me. I graduated over a year ago, but I still feel like I should have homework to do sometimes. Regardless- whether you’re going back to school, or just hate cooking in the morning (me!) – this recipe is for you!
I first discovered overnight oats flipping through a magazine in college. Morning workouts were becoming a routine thing for me, and I was hating getting up an extra half hour early just to cook my favorite breakfast – oatmeal with fresh berries! Not only was getting up earlier a total drag (your girl’s gotta’ sleep!), but trying to cook when you’re still in dreamland, and then scrubbing a pan with oatmeal caked on it? No thanks.
Overnight oats were so intriguing to me.. you put everything in a jar, shake it up, and then microwave it? No pans to clean up? No waiting for the oats to cook? Breakfast done in under a minute? What is this magical unicorn of the breakfast world?! It sounded too good to be true.
Turns out overnight oats were as great as I dreamed they would be. They’re literally the world’s easiest breakfast and they taste SO good! The overnight oats also taste exactly like regular cooked oatmeal if you heat them up. I’m not a fan of eating them cold – but some people like that too! These Berry Overnight Oats only have 6 ingredients, and will take you about 5 minutes to make. Doesn’t get ANY better than that my friends!
- ¾ c oats
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp ground ginger
- 1 tablespoon honey
- ⅓ c berries (I used a mix of blueberries, raspberries and chopped strawberries)
- 1 c milk of choice (I use almond milk)
- Pour all ingredients in a mason jar or seal-able container
- Shake/stir until all ingredients are mixed
- Allow to chill in refrigerator overnight
- Enjoy hot or cold
Things we used for the recipe: mason jars, cinnamon, ginger
