These french toast overnight oats will make you wake up before your alarm. They are filling, sweet, and super creamy. Letting the dates soak with the oatmeal overnight is the secret step that makes all the different. The oats absorb the sweetness and the date pieces get super soft. It is the perfect amount of sweetness, especially with a touch of maple syrup on top. These french toast overnight oats are a delicious option for busy morning breakfasts.
