Red, White and Blue Overnight Oats

My Memorial Day weekend was full of excitement and fun with old friends. It also was loaded with comfort foods! I'm starting the week off right with these overnight oats. Not only are they extremely simple to make, but they provide you with a quick and yummy breakfast for the whole week. This version is packed with sweet cherries and blueberries with a touch of flaxseed for added heart health. Feel free to add your favorite garnishes, but I chose bananas for sweetness and toasted almonds for the perfect crunch! Cheers to happy mornings :)


1. Combine oats, flaxseed and salt in a large bowl.

2. Add almond milk, yogurt and honey and stir to combine.


3. Fold in cherries and blueberries and stir until well incorporated.


4. Transfer mixture to 6 (8 oz.) mason jars, leaving a little room at the top for your garnishes. Secure each jar tightly with a lid and place in the fridge overnight.
