Overnight Oats

I have seen quite a few variations of this around lately, and decided I had to try it.  I'm not a huge fan of oatmeal...it's a texture thing, but I want to get in my oats and flax, and this is the perfect way.  It's quick to make up the night before and breakfast is ready and waiting in the morning--I love it! The best part is you can change it up however you like...more or less milk, add in a tablespoon a cocoa to make chocolate oats, use maple syrup, brown sugar, or honey, instead of the agave, or use chia seeds instead of flax seeds...really anything goes. :)

Overnight Oats
1/2 cup gluten-free rolled oats
2 tablespoons ground flax seed
1 cup dairy-free milk
1 tablespoon agave nectar
fresh fruit

Directions
The night before, mix together oats, flax seed, and milk in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

The next morning, add in agave nectar and fresh fruit and mix together and enjoy!
