Creamy Overnight Oats

by Carrie Fehr

 

Creamy Overnight Oats is my new go-to favorite breakfast. This easy to prepare recipe is a nod to comfort food and yet, so healthy for you too. Feel free to add any toppings you like to change up the flavor combinations. I like berries, almond butter granola with Greek yogurt, and lemon zest. Coconut would also work, as would dried cherries with a sprinkle of cacao powder.
