It is so easy to have a healthy, filling breakfast with clean ingredients that actually tastes like dessert. Win-win-win.

And it is seriously does taste like that. I don’t know how, but I’m not complaining.

Anyway, on to the recipe. This overnight oat recipe from Love to be in The Kitchen is a classic of mine, one of the easiest to just throw together late at night with what’s already in the fridge/pantry.
