Japanese Sweet Potato Overnight Oats

HI! Have you guys tried overnight oats? This is my first time trying them and I have been converted! Japanese Sweet Potato Overnight Oats are super good.

Mornings are busy as heck.

But, breakfast cannot be forgotten! That actually kinda bothers me when someone tells me they are really drowsy in the morning and they tell me that they don’t eat breakfast! It is true that people are different, but I feel like we should all incorporate breakfast into our diets.

Overnight oats are a great, convenient, and super healthy breakfast.

Another problem with breakfast is that it is easy for it to get boring. Sometimes it’s hard to find variations in breakfast foods. Fortunately, these overnight oats can literally become any flavor you want. It could be pumpkin spice, chocolate peanut butter, or even bacon! It really can become a lot of things, you just have to have the craving for it.
