I know I'm not the only one that has reached the bottom of a nut butter jar and felt a pang of sadness one, because I love the stuff and two, because it's actually pretty expensive! #thatstudentbudgetthough It's just so good! I'm typically an almond butter kind of gal, but I recently picked up this mixed nut butter from Trader Joe's and it is ah-mazing! Instead of committing to single nut, I get a mixture of dry and roasted almonds, cashews, walnuts, brazil nut, hazelnuts, and pecans in this bad boy! Why have one when you can have em all!?

I had been toying with the idea of making overnight oats for a while, but never got around to it because the idea of cold oatmeal didn't sound too appealing to me. I knew you could warm them, but that seemed to defeat the purpose of quick, on the go breakfast! Well, I finally decided to go for it with this near empty jar of goodness!


- 1/2 Cup Rolled Oats
- 1/2 Cup Almond Milk
- 1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
- 1 Tbsp plain Greek Yogurt (extra creaminess & protein!)
- A Dash of Cinnamon and Brown Sugar (optional)
- Topping: Sliced banana (& whatever else you want! :D)

Easy! Mix all of the ingredients in the jar and put it in the fridge overnight. In the morning, add the toppings and enjoy! You can even make batches and store them in the fridge for up to a week.

I can't believe I took so long to make this because I ended up LOVING it and there are 3 mason jars full of overnight oats in my refrigerator right now! #converted It was creamy, filling, and the nut butter totally set it off! I'm not a huge breakfast person, but the taste, satiety, and convenience of overnight oats has me hooked. 

One of the greatest things about overnight oats is that they are SUPER customizable. Make it yours! Add, take away, or totally flip what I included in the recipe. Other ideas for toppings include strawberries, flax seeds, walnuts, and more. How do you like your overnight oats?
