Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Overnight Refrigerator Oatmeal

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Overnight Refrigerator Oatmeal | Cookies for breakfast, but in a healthy way!

When I search for new recipes to make, I find myself being a very visual searcher. I like to see pictures of the food. It's kind of like judging a book by its cover, which I also totally am guilty of doing.  I found a picture of Refrigerator Oatmeal on Pinterest and that led me to The Yummy Life blog where it came from. There are actually a ton of variations of flavor combinations to test out...but I went rogue, y'all. I went rogue and created something that I had been craving.

I'm pretty proud of myself for coming up with the flavor combination to make Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough - to sweeten it up, I used brown sugar. I added a touch of homemade vanilla extract (I think it was the rum vanilla extract) and then, of course, chocolate chips. This was AMAZING! I'm so glad I experimented because it was easily the best oatmeal I had ever had.

I cannot wait to try out more variations of the refrigerator oatmeal - it's an easy fix and it's ready to go in the morning. There is no prep!
What you need:
  • 1/4 cup oatmeal
  • 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt

  3. Mix before eating.
  4. The oatmeal should keep 2 to 3 days.
