3 Ingredient Overnight Oats
- Trow all the ingredient into container. (My container of choice is a wide-mouth mason jar because it’s leak-proof and easy to clean.)

- This recipe makes a cereal consistence. If you like your oats thicker reduce liquid to ½ cup.
If you’re not a fan of almond milk feel free to use any milk or milk alternative you desire. However, if you choose to go that route, adjust the calories accordingly. The Low calorie almond milk in this recipe is only 30 calories per serving.
While you can put them in any kind of container, I like a Wide Mouth Mason Jar. These are easy to clean, and with a plastic lid they are leak-proof so you can take them to work, or or gym for your post workout meal.
