So many of us have to run through the door every morning but still want to eat a healthy and energizing breakfast. Those busy parents who are preparing food for their little ones first thing in the morning while also having to get ready for work have a hard time fitting it all in. These salted caramel oats are your best friend!

Salted Caramel Overnight Oats: Variations!

Another beautiful feature this recipe has is how crazy versatile it is and how many different variations of it you can make. You can use your seasonal fruits and any nuts and seeds as toppings,

You can make it more tropical by adding some mango and dried shredded coconut or make some chocolate version with cacao and some peanut butter. So many possibilities! If you have a big family, you could make a few individual portions the night before, and they can pick their own toppings in the morning. Such a lifesaver!

Go Bulk!

It’s very likely, if you try this overnight oats recipe or any other, you’ll be hooked! So how can we make this recipe even more budget-friendly? The answer is: by buying bulk! Go to the bulk section of your grocery store or a specialized bulk shop and get your oats in big batches. The same goes for nuts, coconut, or dried fruits! You’ll save so much money and time by taking this extra time during the month.
