Taco Tuesday - Overnight Cold Oatmeal!

It's time once again for...
This week I want to share my favorite quick breakfast recipe. Mornings in my house are hectic... trying to get myself ready for work and 3 little boys dressed and off to school means that I don't have time for breakfast. Usually I end up grabbing something super unhealthy, smothered in chocolate, and loaded with carbs...

I found a recipe online somewhere for Overnight Cold Oats and over time I adapted it a little. It is now my go to breakfast every morning!

This is easy to prepare at night after the kids go to bed. It only takes me about 15 minutes and I  usually make 3 at a time. It's a simple recipe and just requires you to mix the ingredients together! The "magic" happens overnight in the refrigerator... The chia seeds soak up the liquid in the jar, making a thick, cold, creamy oatmeal!

Just start with a glass mason jar, add the ingredients, mixing along the way, then cover and refrigerate overnight! (I found the plastic screw-on lids for mason jars at Wal-Mart). The best part about this recipe is that you can change up the flavors however you want! I've used many different flavors of Greek yogurt and different combos of fresh fruit. I like to put a lot of fruit in mine (strawberries are the best)!

Check out the full recipe and some of the flavor combinations I have tried:

Have a great recipe you'd like to share? It could be an original recipe, an old family favorite, or a great Pinterest/cookbook find. Post about it on your blog and link it back here (Click HERE to download the Taco Tuesday Logo for your post)!

I can't wait to see what you're cooking up in the kitchen this week!

ENJOY, and thanks for linking up!
