Fall is just around the corner! As much as I love the summer, I am so ready for: cozy sweaters, warm spicy drinks and gorgeous fall colours. Best of all, we can slowly start digging into all sorts of heavenly comfort food. And you can bet that includes breakfast.
Our That Clean Life members have been long-time lovers of our Blueberry Overnight Oats (who can blame them?) so it's only fitting (and completely necessary) to share another awesome overnight oats recipe with the world.
These oats are soaked in almond milk and chia seeds overnight for a thick and creamy, nutritious base. But the flavours are what leave you especially warm and fuzzy: vanilla, cinnamon (OH yes), a dash of nutmeg and a little honey to sweeten the deal.
On-the-go? 250 ml mason jars are the perfect fit. Layer the overnight oats with fresh apple chunks and chopped walnuts, and the result is glorious. Creamy, crunchy, flavourful... Good feels all around, y'all.
Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats

Oh man, nut butter...
