Overnight Oats [Recipe Post - 2 Recipes]

If you read my lifestyle blog, then you know I've struggled for years to make breakfast a part of my daily routine. Part of it is that all I want is coffee; the other part is that I'm not usually up for fixing a breakfast while still waking up.

Enter overnight oats. They have been a real lifesaver lately. We've been enjoying these two recipes lately, though David really likes to combine the two.

Overnight Oats [Recipe Post] @ A Little Seed Grows Blog

For both recipes:

Combine ingredients in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Cranberry Sunflower Seed

1 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup milk 1 Tsp dried cranberries
1 Tsp sunflower seeds


Blueberry Almond

1 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup milk
2 Tsp fresh blueberries
1 Tsp slivered almonds


Our notes 

If you like a little less liquid, reduce milk to 1/2 cup. We use sweetened almond milk. David likes to add a little hemp hearts and flax seed to either recipe.
