If you go to class, or go to work, or by some unholy chance manage to do both at the same time, then you know one thing: mornings are a struggle. 

Not only do you have to actually wake up and avoid wasting all your time scrolling through Facebook on your phone, but you've also got to get ready, brush your teeth, and leave early enough to actually reach your destination on time.

 

And between all that, you've somehow got to prepare, cook, and devour a delicious breakfast, a step which sadly doesn't get as much attention as it deserves. Because, TBH, who has time to actually make breakfast in the morning?

Nobody, that's who. Unless you've played it smart and prepared your morning food options in advance, that is.

One of the best and most simple ways to prepare a nourishing, wholesome option for the morning? By making yourself some overnight oats, made with Quaker Oats

With overnight oats, you prepare your meal at night — so when you wake up, everything's ready for you to enjoy. No more rushing through your mornings; that's honestly pretty much the definition of an #OvernightSuccess.

Best part? They're also super versatile; you can combine them with almost anything to create any of these deliciously wholesome morning meals (there are many more versatile recipes you can make!) in about 10 minutes or less. Overnight oats are by far one of the easiest breakfast options you can make and you can enjoy them any time of the day.
