Overnight Oats Winner

Hope everyone’s weekend is going well! We have had beautiful weather here in the northeast, soaking it all up before the fall weather arrives!
Just wanted to quickly share a giveaway that I won a few weeks ago from Tina at Carrots ‘N’ Cake and Trading Up Downtown for overnight oats. I won a container of Quaker Oats, Planters Nut-rition, Silk soymilk and a handy little covered mug to make it all in.

Since this was my first time trying overnight oats, I could hardly wait! For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, it’s just oats soaked overnight in your choice of liquid (water and/or your favorite type of milk) then you can add nuts/ fruit/cereal either the night before or in the morning. I prefer to add my extras in right before I am going to eat. I loved the planters nut-rition nuts, which was a mixture of almonds, granola, dried cranberries and cherries.

Here I also added some banana and a scoop of natural peanut butter, yum!!
Thank you,  Tina  for the giveaway and introducing me to overnight oats, I am now addicted!! ;)
What’s your favorite ingredient you add to your overnight oats?

  1. I tried overnight oats once and the result was not good! It was so bland and yucky even though I added stuff to it. I am going to try them again at some point but haven't yet. I am scared now!

  2. What a bummer! Have you tried them with a scoop of peanut or almond butter? I won't eat them without it!

  3. I had the same results! I love hot oats but when I tried the overnight oats they were just to bland for my taste, I was thinking of adding honey or some sort of sweetener next time. It's odd b/c I eat them hot without added sweetener?? hhhmmm
