It’s summer here on the Gulf Coast, so that means no matter how early you get up and get going, it is going to be HOT!  I love having oatmeal a few times each week for breakfast, but I don’t want to have a hot breakfast most mornings.  Overnight oats to the rescue!  I really enjoy them, and they are so easy to make!  This has become my go to favorite recipe.

Bob’s Red Mill is by far my favorite brand of oats, and I think the thick cut oats work well for overnight oats.  They retain a great texture. I also highly recommend Vanns Spices Holiday Baking Spice – it’s great in pies, cookies, and this oatmeal!
