Overnight porridge for lazy mornings

breakfast-healthy-overnight-oats-chia

Waking up early in the morning can be a little difficult sometimes. Although getting out of bed at dawn allows us to accomplish many things, we don’t have time to make breakfasts each and every day. That’s why this make-ahead porridge fits perfectly into our morning routine (even when we snoozed too many times)! Plus, this basic recipe is totally customizable so you can have a different version every day.
