With the temps soaring and endless vacations, play dates, and activities happening each day, preparing a hearty breakfast for the little ones each morning might be somewhat challenging. Overnight oats are great because they not only require little to no preparation, but you can get the kids involved by having them help select and prepare their own combination!
1 cup uncooked old fashioned oats
1 cup whole milk, rice, soy or almond milk
1 cup plain greek yogurt
3 tablespoons honey
Add any combination or make up your own of each of these: 1/2 a banana, mashed or sliced, mashed or chopped berries (this works great with frozen berries too) ,flax seeds, chia seeds, a teaspoon of peanut or almond butter, dried fruits, chopped, almonds, walnut, cashew or pumpkin or sunflower seeds
1. In a bowl, stir together the oats, milk, yogurt and honey. Pour into small mason jars and stir in desired accompaniments.
2. Cover and refrigerate overnight or up to 3 days. Serve chilled.
