Blackberry Overnight Oats

I recently learned about overnight oats and immediately decided that I needed to give them a try.  So two nights ago I decided to whip up a jar of overnight oats for breakfast the next day.  They were so easy to make and took less than five minutes.  And lo and behold the next morning, all I had to do was take the jar out of the fridge, grab a spoon and enjoy.  It was delicious and was the perfect start to my morning.

This recipe is from Two Peas and their Pod for Overnight Blueberry Almond Oats.  I adjusted it slightly and used blackberries instead of blueberries.  I also omitted the almonds.

Ingredients:

1/3 Cup vanilla non-fat yogurt (you could also use Greek yogurt)

1/3 Cup milk (I used Lactaid as I am lactose-intolerant, but any type of milk or soy/almond milk would work)

1/3 old-fashioned oats

1/2 Cup blackberries

Cinnamon, 1 or 2 dashes sprinkled on top

Mix together yogurt, milk, oats, and berries in a jar or bowl.  I used a mason jar which I liked because you can just screw on the lid and pop it right into the fridge, no clean up necessary!  Sprinkle cinnamon on top of oat mixture.  Put jar or covered bowl in fridge overnight.  Take out of fridge the next morning and enjoy!

This recipe is very versatile and you can feel free to customize it with your favorite berries, nuts, or raisins.  Whatever sounds good to you!  It is also 6 Weight Watchers Points Plus which makes for a delicious filling and healthy breakfast.
