It's officially December so that means that it's everything Christmas themed from now on, right?! Let's just pretend that I haven't already been blasting the Christmas carols and decorating the house since November 1st. While the colder days usually has me craving a warm breakfast, it's nice to have something ready made in the fridge that I can just pop out and enjoy without thinking. Especially because that means that I get to wake up and feel like I'm eating gingerbread cookies for breakfast! This also makes for great on-the-go snack.
The flavours of gingerbread always brings me back to childhood memories of my mom making hundreds of gingerbread cookies (literally hundreds) and decorating them to look like me and my 3 siblings. She iced them with all our features, complete with the right hair colour, style, eye colour and even dressed in our favourite PJs. Talk about super mom!! Needless to say gingerbreads hold a special place in my heart. I've since health-ified her cookie recipe (coming to the blog soon) but sometimes you want all the flavour of a dessert without actually having the dessert. Enter overnight oats! This is a super simple recipe that comes together in no time. The recipe is for one serving but you could easily double or triple it so that you have breakfast or snacks prepared for a few days.
Stir all ingredients together in a mixing bowl until fully combined. Pour into a small mason jar (or Tupperware), place on the lid and store in the fridge overnight. Your tasty breakfast will be ready and waiting for you in the morning! Double or triple the recipe and divide evenly into separate containers and you'll have an easy breakfast or snack ready for you whenever needed!
