Cinnamon Bun Overnight Oats are a cinnamon bun lovers dream! Flavored with cinnamon, a bit of vanilla and greek yogurt! An easy breakfast idea that you can make the night before!
Since sharing my pumpkin cinnamon rolls, I can’t get them off my mind.
One problem…consuming them on the daily, doesn’t exactly do a body good. A mind? Oh yes.
And not to mention the kick line performance, the little babe performs after I consume a load of sugar.
One of my favorite ways to enjoy breakfast in the morning is oatmeal. With the endless ways to jazz them up, you are able to consume a different bowl each and every morning.
Up until last fall, I adored scrambled eggs or an egg muffin sammy. But upon finding out I am allergic to eggs, sadly, my morning routine had to change. I found myself reinventing the classic bowl of oatmeal I grew up eating. Oats topped with a bit of milk, too cool everything off, a tad bit of butter and sprinkle of brown sugar! Still reminds me of breakfast with my Mom each morning.
There are far few thins that beat a big warm bowl of cinnamon loaded oats with a cup of joe on a crisp morning. And these Cinnamon bun overnight oats are a lifesaver for those quick mornings when time seems to not be your friend!
The night before, simply mix together the oats, yogurt, milk, cinnamon and protein powder (if you choose to use), then add to a jar and let the magic happen. What is truly magical is the ability to make a few of these on a Sunday evening, and having multiple breakfasts ready in minutes!
While Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake overnight oats have the flavors of summer, I love the warmth and sweetness of these Cinnamon Roll oats! Perfect for fall, October mornings! Because what is not to love about the gooey, buttery and gooey flavors of a warm cinnamon roll? To bring on the cinnamon roll flavors to our oats, I added plenty of cinnamon, milk and greek yogurt for added creaminess and a bit of Truvia brown sugar for sweetness. But feel free to use regular brown sugar, or even coconut sugar, if that is all you have.
And we all know the gooey center is the best part of a cinnamon roll, so I topped our oats with a cinnamon and brown sugar loaded glaze! It takes a few seconds to whip up but completely makes each bite pure heaven!
Now off to bakery heaven.
