One of the easiest recipes to prepare for breakfast is overnight oats. Exactly as the name suggests, you prepare it the night before so you can have a quick and healthy breakfast to grab and go in the morning, preferably in a cute mason jar.

As it sits in the fridge overnight, the starchiness of the oats breaks down, making them easier to digest. The result is a creamy concoction that can take just like a dessert with the right ingredients.
