Our house is barely managed chaos in the morning with an early rising two-year old and a rambunctious Great Dane puppy in full throttle.  Both rise with a singular thought, get down to the garden to play in the sandpit that serves as a pirate’s ship, a bus or a chef’s kitchen depending on the day.

Overnight oats are the easiest way I’ve found to ensure my little one eats before setting sail on her next adventure. I usually make overnight oats in jars making them a very handy mobile breakfast. My husband leaves for work before the sun rises so this works perfectly.

With an easy ratio of 1:1, 1 part oats to 1 part liquid, overnight oats could not be simpler.

Vanilla oats with fresh blueberries, or any berries, works great for kids and busy mornings, but on those days when you have an extra five minutes the coffee syrup makes a simple breakfast, special–a grownup treat!

Each mouthful holds layers of yum; first a bold wave of sweet coffee followed by the acidic burst of blueberries and creamy coconut yogurt all brought together by simple vanilla oats.
