I have been working out almost every day for the last several months and you know what I have come to realize? Exercise makes me hungry. Not just a tad bit hungry, either. We are talking 'get out of my way and let me into the pantry' type of hunger. Since I don't always make good eating decisions when hungry (HELLO, package of chocolate cookies!) I am trying to make sure the meals I eat will keep me filled up for while. Breakfast is my favorite meal and the last time I was at Kroger I picked up a canister of Old Fashioned Quaker® Oats so I could make this easy overnight oats recipe. If you love oatmeal and getting creative with flavors, Quaker® Oats has a project for you!
Quaker® Oats Bring Your Best Bowl Contest
Quaker® Oats is hosting a delicious contest that you might want to check out. Do you love oatmeal? What is your all time favorite flavor combination? Submit your recipe ideas and you could win big! Your recipe bowl entries for the contest should have between 2 and 5 ingredients and I found everything I needed right in my local Kroger store. Your recipe might just inspire the next Quaker® Oats flavor! You will also be entered to win $250,000 which could buy a lot of groceries! The contest started last month and runs through March 12, 2016. If this sounds like a contest you would be interested in entering, just head over to the Quaker® Oats Bring Your Best Bowl contest site. The Quaker® Oats Bring Your Best Bowl promotion details can also be found on select instant Quaker® Oats packages (Original and Maple Brown Sugar) and standard Quaker® Oatsl Canisters (Old Fashioned and Quick One Minute).
This easy overnight oats recipe is so simple anyone can make it. There is NO cooking involved, which is awesome for incredibly busy moms who have way too many things to do in the morning. You can make these overnight oats with any dairy or non dairy beverage. I chose almond milk and added a little maple syrup to sweeten it a bit.
I like to soak the oats overnight in a sealed mason jar. Mainly because I just know that my teenagers would dump over an open bowl in the fridge in their haste to get to their next snack. After soaking overnight, just dump into a bowl, add your 'mix ins' and enjoy!
You can add all sorts of delicious and healthy ingredients to this easy overnight oats recipe. I chose blueberries since they are my all time favorite fruit and added pecans since I have tons of them left over from holiday baking. I also added a sprinkle of ground flax seed meal which gives the oatmeal a nice, nutty flavor. There are so many combinations of flavors to choose from that the possibilities are endless!
