Strawberry Chocolate Chip Oatmeal

Mornings can be tough, especially when you are in a rush…so these make-ahead oats come in handy because you can prep them the night before to ensure a healthy breakfast the next morning. I never understand when people say “I don’t have time for breakfast”. We all have time for breakfast, you just need to make the time… These oats are gluten-free, dairy-free, and just about sugar free. What a perfect way to start the day!  They literally only take about 10 minutes to whip up, so get cooking in the kitchen!
