Milk and Honey Overnight Oats makes breakfast fast, easy and DELICIOUS!
Years ago, when I worked the breakfast shift at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel we used to make a delicious concoction of cream, honey, oatmeal and raisins. We’d let it chill in the fridge overnight for the oatmeal to soften and absorb the cream. It was rich, decadent and absolutely delicious.
I’ve lightened that recipe up a bit, replacing the full fat cream with a combination of milk and yogurt. Honey is still my preferred sweetener but agave nectar is a fine substitute. If you make a batch of this it will last in your refrigerator for 2-3 days. Simply top is with your favorite fresh fruit to make a complete breakfast.
The best part about this is you can mix in LOTS of different ingredients so everyone in the family can customize it the way they like. Layer the Milk and Honey Overnight Oats with your favorite jam, berries, apples…whatever you like.
I even stir in a teaspoon or so of cocoa powder in to my overnight oats to make a chocolaty treat. Swirl in peanut butter and top it with chocolate chips and bananas.
