Overnight Oats

Overnight Oats
Good Morning, wake up to a readymade breakfast! All of us know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but many of us are scrambling for time in the morning and the last thing on the list is to make or even eat a quick breakfast. While some of us who do prioritize breakfast may be bored of eating eggs or toast every day or some want to decrease the stress time of packing kids lunches and making breakfast for all in that short span of time in the morning. This amazing overnight breakfast satisfies all. Overnight Oats are easy to make, can be made ahead and are a power packed wholesome breakfast with all the nutrients and fiber from oats and delicious fixings. This breakfast keeps you full for much longer than other normal breakfast options. Important elements: I highly recommend 8 oz wide mouth mason jars for overnight oats, since they come with lids you can make it ahead and store in fridge without exposure to other things of the fridge. Also if you are in a hurry in the morning you can take it to-go. We have packed this sometimes for power packed breakfast for camping trips or healthy options in long drives. Steel cuts oats are better for cooking an oats soup, for overnight oats I prefer normal Quaker oats.The oats and chia seeds swell in liquid overnight and hence add enough milk for it to soak in. Layer the oats, chia seeds, yogurt, fruit and nut fixings as per your taste. There is no hard and fast rule, everything gets stirred before eating.
