Maple Pecan Overnight Oats

Maple Pecan Overnight Oats

We love overnight oats and this recipe has worked its way to the top of our breakfast favorites list.

They are easy to prepare, create a ready to-go breakfast you can grab straight out of the fridge and head out the door with.

Make them in a mason jar or air tight container, throw them in your bag with a spoon and go.

The maple pecan topping says optional, but you’re going to want to try it.

Savory, crunchy and sweet are all wonderful for breakfast.

Pro tip: Make at least 5 of these at a time. Our photographer extraordinaire may or may not have had made ten in the last three days.

Healthy, delicious, simple and fast breakfast options for busy families are always a win in our book.

Try them out with your family and let us know how it goes.
