Chocolate Cherry Overnight Oats

Hey everyone! 

So, I've noticed there is currently an overnight oats craze going on in the health blogging world. I've always been intrigued and wanted to try them, and a few nights ago I realized I had everything I needed to make overnight oats in my dorm room. So what did I do? I tried them for the first time! 

Oats before thickening overnight

These were actually pretty good, although I think next time I'll experiment a bit more and use different flavors or yogurt and toppings. I would love to try making a key lime pie, banana cheesecake, or apple cinnamon variety!! Give this recipe a try for yourself and let me know what you think! 

Oats the next morning!

  2. What a great flavor Rachael! They sound so tasty! I'm guilty to sticking to really simple flavors like a bit of cinnamon. I'll have to venture out and try something like this one! Thanks for the idea!

  3. Those overnight oats look delicious! :) I prefer hot oats in the winter, but in the warmer months I tend to eat overnight oats instead. I'll have to try this recipe some time! :D
