Overnight Refrigerator Oatmeal

Overnight refrigerator oatmeal is easy to make, customizable, and a great choice for a healthy, grab-and-go breakfast. Chia seeds add fiber while walnuts, dried cranberries, and coconut add flavor and crunch. What I love about this recipe is that there are no hard or fast rules. Don’t like soy milk? Use skim milk. Or almond milk. Use fresh or dried fruit, or both. Drizzle some maple syrup. Make this a mid day snack with carob chips and nuts. The possibilities are endless!
