Make Ahead Overnight Oats 3 Ways: Sweet, Savory and Rich

Your breakfasts and mornings just got a whole lot easier, a whole lot prettier and most importantly a whole lot tastier! My overnight oats three ways will give you the flexibility and options to please a variety of palate types. The option between sweet, savory and rich guarantees that there is something for everyone. Flavors to include: Triple Chocolate Brownie Batter, Avocado Toast and Banana Split.



I love overnight oats for many reasons. One of the main reasons being that they keep me full and focused so I am able to effortlessly power through my mornings. They are also so easy to make ahead of time and then, easy to garnish the next morning when you are ready to eat. Plus, a bowl of oats is so nutritious between the fiber, complex carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants it provides.



I received this very special request to create these overnight oats three ways and I am so happy I did!
