Blueberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats
by Brenda Kong
Blueberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats, just saying it will make my mouth water. Decadent, creamy dreamy and easy to prep; just 5 minutes of work and leaving it in the fridge overnight will give you a scrumptious breakfast in the morning. Overnight oats are the new kids on the block of popular breakfasts and the varieties are endless, really your limit is your imagination. A 1:1 ratio of liquids to oats is all you need to remember, that and use old fashion rolled oats, it doesn’t work with quick cooking oats. Luckily I always have rolled oats in my house for granola bars and oatmeal cookies. I like my oats a little soupier; it’s just a preference so I always add a dash more of milk than the recipe calls for. Topping your oats is where the fun is at, sometimes I do fruits, granola or for a little added sweetness I’ll add maple syrup. During the summer I love my oats cold, straight out the fridge but during the winter I warm it up for a soothing treat on those blistery cold mornings. It’s one of my favorite new recipes and I always forget that it’s low in sugar!
