Let’s make morning glory overnight oats

I’m always trying to incorporate more and more veggies and fruits into my diet, and sometimes I struggle to do so with breakfast. 

So I decided to take one of my favorite morning glory muffins and turn them into overnight oats.

That means carrots, apples, coconut, raisins and walnuts.  YES, YES, YES. 

It gives me fruits and veggies for breakfast, and it gives me DELICIOUS.

If you’re into easy make-ahead breakfasts, this one is it

I don’t know about you, but it’s important that I spend a few minutes prepping breakfast foods each week.

Otherwise, things get busy and crazy and I am not as prepared for a nourishing breakfast as I should be.

That’s why I absolutely love overnight oats because I can make 5 individual servings and have one Monday-Friday.

And, I can change up the mix-ins and toppings so it never gets boring.
