13 Of My Favorite Original Overnight Oatmeal Recipes

Overnight oats are one of my favorite breakfasts! There are so many options and variations. Below are a few of my favorites to give you some ideas, but don't be afraid to get creative with them!

For example, instead of using 1/2 cup of plain quick oats, you can always use a packet of flavored instant oats! You could even try a flavor of Greek yogurt other than the one I suggest in the recipe or change up the fruits. The variations are limitless!

I gave some suggestions for toppings, too, but you can really add whatever toppings you want! In my opinion, you can never go wrong with adding more toppings before you eat overnight oats - the more, the merrier - especially when they are nut butters, fruit, and granola for a little crunch!

Also, here's a little tip: make your overnight oats in a jar of nut butter that has about 2 to 4 tbsp. left in it... you can thank me later.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
