I’m excited to partner with Quaker to tell you guys about the new Quaker Overnight Oats! They may have just saved the day by making it easy to enjoy a breakfast option with virtually no hassle, so we can focus on our morning hustle. One of my favorite morning meals is a hearty bowl of oats with fruit and nuts. The only thing that ever really stands in my way of whipping it up is the hassle of it when I’ve got stuff to do — whether it’s an early call time on set or just a busy day with friends and family. Pre-making your breakfast the night before never sounds fun, especially after we’ve just cleaned up from dinner — who wants more dirty dishes??
It’s as easy as steep, sleep and eat. Before your pretty head hits the pillow, simply add milk or your non-dairy option of choice to the single serve container. Just stir the mixture and let it steep overnight in the refrigerator. As you rise and shine, reach for your ready-to-enjoy oats. See? No mess, no fuss, just deliciousness!
The blend of 100% whole grain oats and other grains, fruit pieces, quinoa, flaxseed and nuts is everything I could ask for — Blueberry, Banana and Vanilla Bliss and Orchard Peach Pecan Perfection are my current faves. There’s no artificial flavors or added colors, and at 300 calories or less before adding your milk or non-dairy option, Quaker’s Overnight Oats are basically the best thing to ever happen to breakfast!
What could you accomplish with a little extra time in the morning??
