Easy does it: Overnight Oats

Ready in less than five minutes (no, really), healthy and virtuously filling, overnight oats are a quick and easy breakfast that’s great whether you have a hectic morning ahead or just want to sleep a little longer. All you have to do is prep the night before. Variations are countless, but we have two for you: a peanut butter and chocolate version, if you’re the sweet tooth kind; and a fresh berries one, for those looking for something a little less indulgent.

  3. Close the jar tightly and place it in the fridge for at least 4 hours (or overnight) to allow chia seeds to soften.
  4. The next day, add an extra splash of milk right before enjoying, if needed. Top with peanut butter cups for extra sweetness.
