Do you remember making no bake cookies as a kid?  We made them in elementary school, and every opportunity I had to make them, I did. This recipe will take you right back to your childhood and the days of being carefree.  The days when you didn’t have to pay bills or worry about juggling a long to do list, family, and a career. Overnight oats are an easy, make-ahead breakfast that will keep you feeling full until lunch.  You will save time and look forward to breakfast with this chocolate oatmeal cookie overnight oats recipe. Try it tonight!

Benefits of overnight oats

1. Easy to make ahead, so they save you time in the morning.

2. Full of protein and super foods to keep you feeling full longer.

3. They are versatile.  You can add your favorite ingredients and try new recipes, so they don’t get old. Try different flavor combinations and add different toppings to spice up your oats.

4. Since the oats soak overnight, their starches break down.  This helps improve digestibility and they are more easily absorbed by your body.

5. Overnight oats taste like a delicious, pudding dessert, so it’s hard to believe they are actually healthy.

      I love blueberries in mine too!
