Overnight Oats

To make overnight oats, you stir oatmeal, milk, and yogurt together and let it sit overnight in the fridge. I think it's a "thing" that exploded the past year; now it's all over Pinterest and Reddit. 
B first told me about ages ago because it's really a easy on-the-go, already prepared breakfast for when you're rushing to school. I told him that sounded gross and soggy. I despise soggy anything; the oats in my oatmeal are dry and practically raw when I eat it, and I always eat cereal and milk separately because even a few minutes of sitting on milk ruins the texture for me. 

Well, one year later, I finally tried this overnight oats thing, expecting gross, soggy slop. 

I was wrong. It's delicious and fluffy. You win this round, B.

Ingredients
1/2 cup steel cut oats
1/3 cup milk or almond milk
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
cinammon
black sesame seeds
1/2 berries

Directions
Combine oats, milk,  yogurt, and cinnamon (adjust milk to desired consistency). Set in fridge overnight. The next morning, top with berries and sesame seed.
