Overnight Oats Recipes - Two Ways

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. For me, every meal is important since I love eating so much, but starting the day off right really sets the tone for whether I will have a healthy or not-so-healthy eating day. Then I tried #overnightoats - I started preparing them for myself a few months ago and quickly understood what all the hype was about - now I am hooked! Whether you make them quick and easy, like I do most days, or you make them "fancy" for when your friends come over for brunch - they are always a hit!

Here are my two favourite recipes for overnight oats. One for everyday deliciousness - another for special occasions! Enjoy!
