Overnight Gingerbread Oats

March 23, 2013
I am so over this weather in Toronto. Seriously, winter needs to be done. The only upside to this extended winter? It is somewhat socially acceptable to post recipes with “wintry” ingredients. Squash, pumpkin, peppermint, gingerbread…Yes I am the kind of person who does not wear white after Labour Day.
Gingerbread Overnight OatsSo today I have one of those recipes for you, Overnight Gingerbread Oats. Not surprisingly these taste amazing topped with a big ole’ dollop of peanut butter! A short and sweet post for a short and sweet recipe.
