Morning Glory Overnight Oats!

My favorite muffin of all time is a good Morning Glory Muffin! So I decided why not turn it into my favorite breakfast food, oatmeal!

Here’s the line up:

Almond milk, raisins, oats, ground cinnamon, vanilla extract, vanilla protein powder (optional), shredded carrots, 1 apple (note I would have also liked to add grated zucchini but my grocery store was all out of zucchini! I know. it’s a crime)

First add your apple, carrots, raisins, cinnamon, protein power, and vanilla extra to the pan and cook for about 3 minutes

Then add your oats, along with 2/3 cup water and 1/3 cup almond milk

Cook for about 5 minutes, and then pour in a bowl and refrigerate overnight

Either heat up the oats the next morning, or eat them  cold with lots of yummy toppings like I do!

My toppings:

Shredded unsweetened coconut

Almond butter (obvs)

and This AMAZING granola

I found this at my local Pathmark. It’s seriously so good and really addicting!

but back to the oatmeal..

this was so amazing. it tasted just like a morning glory muffin, but in oatmeal form. The apple made these oats super voluminous, and the carrot provided a nice healthy sweetness!

I WILL be making these again. maybe for breakfast tomorrow?

Here’s the full recipe!
