Overnight Oatmeal

It’s the final stretch until graduation, and the nerves are getting high! All the more reason to throw myself into cooking, yoga-ing, and blogging.

Last night (it’s been a couple nights now–I’ve let this post sit too long!), I decided to try an overnight oatmeal recipe I found posted to Facebook. I would totally link the video I took inspiration from, but I can’t find the link! But rest assured, overnight oatmeal is quick and easy to make. In ten minutes or less, you’ve made a few days’ worth of a breakfast that is full of protein and fiber, and provides fruit we all need in our diet. Without further ado, overnight oatmeal:

Ingredients:

1-1/2 cups Plain Greek Yogurt

1 cup Oatmeal (dry, uncooked)

Raspberries

Dried apricot

Blueberries

Flax seed

How to do it:

1. Mix the yogurt and dry oats. I prefer a little extra yogurt, but if you want something chunkier, less yogurt is better.

2. Add fruits, little by little at first. You don’t want tons of blueberries and then no room for raspberries (unless, of course, you don’t want raspberries… weirdo). Basically, you make it what you wish to eat later. Sprinkle with flax seed.

3. Let sit in the fridge overnight, or for 5+ hours at the very least. Then serve yourself, and enjoy a wonderful breakfast!
