You can have your coffee and eat it too with this Vanilla Cold Brew Overnight Oatmeal recipe! The perfect recipe to prep breakfasts for the week.
So I must confess I am a bit of a coffee snob. Like, I started drinking coffee regularly when I was about fourteen and literally everyone in my family is a coffee addict. That maybe sounds intense but if we’re at a family gathering and that afternoon slump hits without any available coffee in sight….. just get ready for a bunch of grumps with caffeine headaches. Needless to say, I’ve drank enough coffee in my life to become a bit of a snob about it. That being said, I’m not a huge fan of Starbucks. Don’t hate me but their house coffee just really isn’t that good. Like holy acidic motor oil if you know what I’m saying. However, one drink on their menu is a bit of a guilty pleasure for me…..their vanilla latte. Seriously I could drink one every day, and thus I was inspired to make a vanilla coffee oatmeal! Vanilla Cold Brew Overnight Oatmeal to be exact. All of my favorite flavors wrapped up in a pre-made portable breakfast, I would call that a win win! This recipe is packed with fiber and protein to keep you fueled and full for your day. Plus, if you’re not a big coffee drinker just leave it out and you got some tasty vanilla oatmeal! The perfect breakfast to make ahead for the week.
To make this Vanilla Cold Brew Overnight Oatmeal you will need:
