This week Sara and I are back together in Virginia working on a project. It is always nice when we can get together, talk about food and try out new recipes. The recipe today is a result of a long running curiosity I have had with the idea of overnight oatmeal. Pinterest is full of delicious looking refrigerator oatmeal recipes. I know I am a little slow to jump on this trend, but I just hadn’t gotten around to trying it until now.
Since we like to experiment when we are together, Sara and I thought we would give this overnight oatmeal thing a try. We wanted to come up with a recipe that was both simple and could also be made with ingredients you might have around the house. We did throw some chia seeds in there, which gives it a great texture, but you could leave them out if you dont have and/or like them. I think we’ll be experimenting a little more with chia seeds. Maybe a pudding? So, be on the lookout for that soon.
For us, breakfast can be the most challenging part of clean eating. It’s so easy to grab a bagel or sugary cereal in the morning, especially when you’re starving. So we are psyched to that this oatmeal was so delicious and so easy.
