killing time between meals

where talking about what's for dinner while you're at lunch is totally acceptable

Fall Overnight Oats

Leave a comment

Sometimes I have trouble with breakfast. Between hitting snooze, corralling dogs, gathering gym clothes, and the rest of the morning routine, I can’t always find time for the most important meal of the day. And sadly, that usually ends in a dry, chewy protein bar. But since discovering overnight oats, my mornings are much happier! This protein-packed, make-ahead breakfast is so easy and filling. There are lots of different ways you can dress up overnight oats, but this is my favorite so far.

Fall Overnight Oats
Adapted from Dashing Dish
Serves 3

¾ cup almond milk
½ cup plain low-fat Greek yogurt
1 carrot, grated
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 tablespoon raw sugar
1 cup oats (quick or old fashioned)
1 tablespoon chia seeds

  • In a bowl, combine all ingredients and mix well. Divide between three 1-cup bowls or mason jars.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight. The oats will soften and absorb the liquid.
  • Enjoy as is, add toppings such as nuts, or heat and serve warm.
