What, is it morning already?  How can that be?  If you have read some of my posts about breakfast, you know that morning is not my strong suit.  That is putting it mildly.  My brain just does not work in the morning, especially for the first few weeks of school.  Ugh, that alarm clock rings so early.  I’m not exactly an “up and at them” kind of girl.  I’m more of a “talk to me after I’ve had my coffee” girl.  So breakfast has to be easy and quick.  It also has to be made ahead of time.  Otherwise, you can find me staring aimlessly into the refrigerator, until I forget what I was doing in the first place.  I may have even dozed off, so breakfast has to be something I can quickly grab.  Overnight oats are the simple and delicious solution.

I can easily get bored with breakfast, but with overnight oats the possibilities are endless. I recently made Peach Melba Pie Overnight Oats for my little one.  Vanilla Latte Overnight Oats are all mine.  That shot of strong espresso or coffee is like a dream come true.  Plus it is a fun breakfast.  I can feel like I am at a fancy coffee shop while I am happily eating my overnight oats in my pajamas.  That seems rather decadent to me. What I also love about this recipe is that you can add the espresso the night before or pour a nice hot-shot of espresso over the cold oats.  I love to see the espresso seep into the crevices of the oatmeal.  It makes my mouth water just thinking about it.  I can either mix it all up together or enjoy the sensation of the hot espresso sitting on the cold oats.  Yummy!

If you don’t want a jolt of caffeine in your overnight oats, use decaffeinated coffee.  It will work just as well.  If you want something more child-friendly, try the Peach Melba Overnight Oats or Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats.  Got some fruit in your refrigerator that needs to be used up?  Layer it on top of your overnight oats.  Go wild with the possibilities.

  13. That sounds really good! I love the flavours and a latte?! Yes please! Do you know how long they would stay in the fridge? Like, could I make 2 or 3 for the week at a time or will the oats get TOO mushy? Thanks!
    • Christie Daruwalla says
