It’s starting. The hot weather. I know some of you probably want to throw garbage at me for complaining about the heat, but if you have ever lived in Phoenix, you would understand where I am coming from. We brought the baby to a spring training game last week and it was about 90 degrees and we almost died. My poor baby was so hot and started getting really mad by the 2nd inning. This can’t bode well for the summer!
So needless to say with the rising temps, I am over hot foods, especially for breakfast. I started craving overnight oats again. If you have never had overnight oats, I can tell you that some people can’t handle the texture and the fact that its cold, but I am totally down with the overnight oats! I love that I can just mix everything up the night before and have breakfast just waiting for me in the morning when I am trying to rush out the door.
My inspiration for these overnight oats came from my cinnamon roll oatmeal. I wanted to create an overnight version. Oh goodness are these yummy! Plenty of cinnamon flavor and then if you really want to treat yourself, spoon a big ol’ dollop of cream cheese topping on top and you’ve got yourself one easy, but seriously decadent but not too-bad-for-you breakfast!
