Overnight Oats: 2 ways {So Delicious and Go Dairy Free March Recipe Madness Contest!}

The time has come for me to admit that I have become a hardcore snooze-button pusher lately.  Remember my days of waking up before the sun to run 8 miles before work? Ya, it’s hazy for me too.  I have become quite the night owl these days & enjoy my 10:30 PM pajama yoga & 3 minute plank attempts with my Mom.

Signing up for an 8 AM class was like deciding to run totally naked in the snow- painful & unnecessary.  Not that I have ever even really seen snow fall…

Okay.  So, the point of this strange beginning was for me to share a delicious little breakfast of champions with you.   I have figured out the exact time (7:17) that I can wake up and still arrive on time for my 8:00 class & with this breakfast, I even get to eat!

I am excited to enter this little recipe in a fun contest:

The So Delicious and Go Dairy Free March Recipe Madness Contest!

I thank my lucky stars every day for companies like So Delicious that make my lactose intolerant life a little more bearable.

Huge shout out to my BFF & her twin for inspiring me to try overnight oats again.  I have attempted 5 different recipes & will share them with you when I decide each is worthy.

I have a tendency to get into food ruts & eat the same boring thing over & over again.  These little jars of goodness have totally helped me mix it up.  As my friend Kelly said “You really can’t mess these up”— MY KIND OF “COOKING”.

Have you ever tried overnight oats?

What is your favorite add-in or topping?

  1. LOVE overnight oats! I use oats (uncooked), non-dairy milk, 1 banana, 1 tsp of vanilla extract and dark chocolate cocoa powder. Can’t wait to try these two recipes!
