Blueberry Vanilla Overnight Oatmeal

Blueberry Vanilla Overnight Oatmeal

Overnight oatmeal is a quick and healthy breakfast for busy mornings.  Oatmeal is one of the undisputed “Super Foods” and packs a powerful punch with healthy carbohydrates, cholesterol lowering soluble fiber, and hunger fighting compounds. This recipe is delicious right from the fridge or heated up in the microwave.

I love that you can prep several containers per person on Sunday and it stays good for 3-4 days.  Make the base and season in the morning or add your favorite dried fruit at night.
