Red Velvet Cake Overnight Oatmeal

I haven’t been into my overnight oatmeal recently since the mornings have been chilly.

However, this morning it was actually fairly warm…and it was a nice change of pace from my baked oatmeal recipes.

Overnight Oatmeal is very convenient and easy to make, and uses ingredients you most likely already have in your house. You can even take it to-go if you’re in a hurry for work or school, and don’t have time to sit down and eat breakfast.

I like overnight oatmeal just because I get to put them in a fancy cute mason jar, guilty as charged.

This overnight oatmeal recipe uses MyOatmeal Red Velvet Cake blend which was customized myself using instant rolled oats and red velvet cake flavor. I opted to not add in any sweetener to the blend, but I added in my own because it’s essential for the flavor to shine through.
