My family loves breakfast and we consider it the major meal of the day – the meal that propels us throughout the day.

As you can imagine it’s not just a piece of bread and coffee. Having grown up in an Asian household, I am used to breakfast with rice, eggs, and some meat – yes, quite heavy.

While I continue to serve hot and cooked breakfast to my family, I am glad that for busy, crazy days I have a delicious and healthy alternative that requires barely 5 minutes of prep and best of all may be done the night before!!!

Hurrah for Overnight Oatmeal!!! I have done this previously and my family has enjoyed this a few times already but I actually never wrote a post about it despite it being so popular! But, it’s better late than never, right?

Perhaps because it got eaten so quickly so there was never much of a chance to photograph the food! 🙂 So yesterday, I woke up earlier, and yay – I finally got a photo of it!

What I love about this recipe is not just the ease but its versatility. You can use whatever fruits are in season, your favorite sweetener, and also dairy-free alternatives.

You can even add some of your favorite nut butter in the mix, too! So, the possibilities are endless! If you don’t fancy layering, simply mix the fruits with the oatmeal in the bowl the next day.

Either way, I am sure you will enjoy this and you can be happy you are feeding your family something delicious and healthy, too!! 🙂

    Do you cook the oatmeal first?

    I’m always looking for new breakfast recipes and I’ve never tried overnight oats, so this feels like a sign to give it a try. Love the idea to add nut butter, I’ll definitely be giving that a go!

    I’m not familiar with the Chia seeds, would this still be good w/o the seeds?

      Chia seeds bind it all together so without it, it may not stick together as much. It’s also added because of its many nutritional benefits. You can find it in grocery stores (it’s not hard to find it – pretty popular nowadays) perhaps near the cereal/breakfast section or baking section and specially in health stores. If not, you can try – it may still work. I have just always done this with chia seeds.

    Could you use frozen fruit or would they make it too watery?

      It should be fine because the oats would absorb the extra liquid. Hope you enjoy!
