I've posted a recipe on overnight oats before, so this recipe is nothing groundbreaking or original. But on damp foggy Louisiana days, there's nothing better than waking up to a heart warming (and heart healthy) breakfast. So let those oats soak overnight, and enjoy this recipe in the morning while hoping for the dense fog to clear out.
Warm raspberry maple cinnamon pecan overnight oats (serves 2)
½ cup rolled oats
¼ cup yogurt
½ cup 1% milk (try almond or soy milk also)
½ tsp vanilla extract
¼ tsp cinnamon
2 tsp maple syrup
½ cup raspberries
½ cup roasted pecans
Optional: nuts, dried fruit, seeds, berries, banana, nut butter, chocolate chips, chia seeds
1. Mix everything (except pecans) together in a bowl.
2. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
3. Microwave and top with roasted pecans and other mix-ins in the morning!
