Overnight Oats with Figs and Honey

Overnight Oats with Figs and Honey – EASY, no cooking required!

Overnight oats are simple to make, because there’s no cooking required! I soak the oats a few hours or overnight in milk (any kind will work) along with chia seeds, then top with my favorite toppings. Often I sweeten the oats with stevia, but today I opted for a little raw local honey.

It’s the start of fig season! Last week I attended an event for California Figs and brought home some beauties so I’ve been eating them all week. They are great as is, on toast with almond butter, but I also love them over a bowl of oats. This breakfast is healthy and full of fiber which will keep you full for hours.
