Waking up to breakfast already done is amazing.

Waking up to a healthy breakfast already done is even better!

I love anything maple and these Blueberry Maple Overnight Oats are no exception. These are super simple…even I can whip them together after a loooong day wrangling five kiddos. You can too!

Breakfast. Done.
