Overnight Oatmeal

This is an easy recipe for breakfast.  You prepare it the night before and put in the fridge.  The next morning, you pull it out of the fridge and then set it on the counter to allow for the oats to warm up a bit.  That is unless you love the oats ice cold.

This is a versatile recipe.  You can change it up depending on your imagination.  I’m sharing you a version that uses blueberries and strawberries.  The oatmeal is then topped with pecans.
