Raspberry preserves and vanilla extract make for a delicious and easy to prepare grab-and-go breakfast in this overnight oats recipe.
“A Sunday well spent brings a week of content”- I’m not sure exactly who said this, but it’s a quote I’ve seen around a lot on Pinterest and Instagram and is one I like to follow. Most Sundays for me are a day for getting organized for the week ahead, running errands, buying groceries and working on blog posts. It really is true that the more organized I am able to get on a Sunday, the better my week goes. I don’t have to run around after work to work for errands and I can spend my weeknights relaxing with MJD. Of course this isn’t able to happen every Sunday, if we’re out of town for the weekend or maybe if Saturday night was too much fun :).
One great way to get organized on Sundays is to prep and plan out your meals for the week ahead. I’m a big fan of making a few jars of overnight oats on Sundays as grab-and-go breakfasts for the week ahead. You already know I’m a fan after my peanut butter and banana recipe. Not only are overnight oats a delicious breakfast, but they help you save some precious minutes of sleep during the week! What could be better? My Raspberry Overnight Oats recipe comes together easily and brings some sweetness to breakfast. The recipe below makes one serving and will stay in the fridge in an airtight container for up to three days, so go ahead and make a few days worth!
How do you like to spend your Sundays? Do you have any habits you keep to on Sunday to make for a great week? I’d love to hear your tips and tricks!
Makes One Serving
- 1/2 of a cup old-fashioned oats
- 1/2 of a cup Vanilla Almond milk (regular milk is great too, this is my preference for some extra vanilla!)
- 1/8 of a teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon raspberry preserves (I like Bonne Maman)
- 1/4 of a cup fresh raspberries
Combine oats, milk, vanilla and raspberry preserves into a small mixing bowl.
Pour mixture into a mason jar or other airtight container.
Cover and place in refrigerator overnight, or for at least three hours.
When ready to eat, top with fresh raspberries and enjoy!
