Overnight Oats

I've been looking for recipes that are quick and easy but also yummy and filling. For weekday breakfasts, I've been experimenting with overnight oats. A little while ago, I tried Overnight Gingerbread Oats. They were delicious! They were also nutritious, due to the chia seeds (high in fiber, protein, and healthy fat) and blackstrap molasses (high in iron).

The best thing about overnight oats is that they are super-customizable. If you have oats and any kind of milk (soy, almond, etc) in your kitchen, you can whip up a couple of batches of these and be good-to-go for the next few mornings! Just follow this basic recipe. My breakfast this morning was my own creation based on that template: Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Overnight Oats (0.6 cups oats, 2 Tbsp chia seeds, 1 cup chocolate soy milk, and a few slices of frozen strawberries). Yum!
