As I've entered adulthood and reluctantly accepted the fact that I wake up every day before the sun rises, I've developed a routine that makes my morning process as quick and as painless as possible. My alarm goes off and I am out the door 33 minutes later. Pretty good, huh?
Part of my morning routine is making my breakfast the day before. This helps because it gives me something healthy (and filling) to eat the next day without spending the "oh-no-I-don't-have-time-so-let-me-stop-at-Dunkin".
These overnight oats are the perfect solution! Below, you'll see all of the ingredients I used.
1/2 cup of oats
1/2 cup almond milk (use whatever kind of milk you want)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon maple syrup
A couple dashes of cinnamon
Fruit! (My favorite is strawberries and bananas - today I only had raspberries, though!)
Combine all of the ingredients into a mason jar and shake it up! Let it set in the refrigerator over night.
Grab a spoon when you wake up, and you're done! Breakfast is served!
