I’m pretty much obsessed with overnight oats right now because when I roll out of bed in the morning, I don’t want to cook anything, I just wanna shove food in my face and drink some coffee alongside it.

Overnight oats are amazing, especially to those with busy mornings.  But overnight DESSERT oats?  That’s a godsend to us sweet teeth  😉
