Description

I'm always looking for a quick and easy breakfast and overnight oats are the perfect solution. They only involve combining a few ingredients in jars or a large bowl. Simply mix the ingredients, which takes about five minutes, put them in the fridge for two hours or overnight. Walla! Do you have overnight oats for the next morning. The great thing is, they keep in the fridge for about four days. I often make up enough for the week.

Note

As always, feel free to alter the ingredients according to your liking. I often put more maple syrup in for additional sweetness. Honey can be used as well.

Use the regular oats and not the instant oats as they tend to get too mushy.

The Chia seeds are optional but add a pudding like texture which is delicious.

You can use plain yogurt but Greek adds a bit more flavour. On that note, flavoured yogurt is a nice touch as well. 

Of course, use the fruit of your choice. Peanut butter is a nice ingredient too.
