Our mornings are still super hectic trying to get the kids all ready for school in time, while making sure they had their breakfast and brushed their teeth. I’ve adapted many tricks and techniques to make mornings go more smoothly, such as breakfast prep the night before.
Our mornings usually go like this. I wake up at 7am, before the kids to guzzle some coffee, if I’m feeling energized I’ll try to squeeze in a yoga class before waking them up to get them ready for their day. Routine and sticking to one has been key for us during this time as I feel like they need some kind of consistency now.
One of their favorites for breakfast these days is overnight oats with granola! The granola makes a huge difference when making overnight oats, so I’ve been using Sweet Home Farms Granola, because they offer so many different flavors. They make simply delicious granola with only the finest whole grains, fruits, nuts, and simple sweeteners. Ingredients are grown and made sans GMOs, and never have artificial colors.
Some of the Sweet Home Farms flavors include Cinnamon, Bluberry, French Vanilla Almond, Honey Nut, Pumpkin Flax, and Maple Pecan. They come in carton size containers, or a smaller size resealable pouches.
Overnight Oats Recipe:
Two Cups Of Oatmeal
Two Cups of Milk (or substitute)
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 cup Sweet Home Farm Granola
Mix together the oatmeal, milk, syrup, and chia seeds. Place in mason jars, then top with Sweet Home Farm Granola, and berries. Place in refrigerator overnight, and enjoy next morning!
Sweet Home Farm Granola’s aren’t just for overnight oats. They’ve made their way into my maple nut cookies, homemade granola bars, pancakes, and Brownies. Head to their website, with plenty of fun recipes!

I make overnight oats all the time. It’s one of the easiest things ever. However, I’ve never put granola in my oats. I ‘ve used things like berries, coconut, almonds or cacao. But I imagine that granola is so good. I also love the little single serving containers.
