Before we embarked on our #BabySumoBirthdayWeek recently, we went on a week-long of clean eating to prepare our body for the heavy eating that was to follow. An easy, healthy breakfast that we had one morning was overnight oats with a variety of fresh fruits, dried fruit and nuts.
A gorgeous, healthy breakfast
Overnight oats gets its name from the soaking of rolled oats overnight in milk to soften them. In the past, this was popularly eaten in Scotland and Switzerland, and now throughout the world. In the morning, simply add your favorite fresh fruits, dried fruits and nuts to the overnight oats and sweeten to taste with honey.
Dress up overnight oats with your favorite fruits and nuts :)
I love how gorgeous and colorful this looked with all the different fruits - we chose to add blueberries, strawberries, dried cranberries, dried apricots, banana, and almond flakes. I made this for Hubby and I for breakfast, but Baby D also invited himself to try some since it contains all his favorite ingredients in one bowl. :)
All his favorites in one bowl :)
