Gingerbread Overnight Oats

Happy Christmas Eve Eve! The countdown continues!

I'm so excited to finish out today because it means a much-needed vacation. So ready to celebrate Christmas with family and friends.

So, to keep me in the spirit, and to raise you spirits as well, here's another festive overnight oats recipe. Today's nutritious and yummy breakfast is reminiscent of the comforting flavors of gingerbread.


I love making gingerbread this time of year. I have a great recipe that was passed down from my great grandmother. But, I'm sad to say, I've been so busy this year - the season has gotten away from me and I have yet to make any of the delicious Christmas treat. At least I have these gingerbread overnight oats to fill the void.

Enjoy!
