If you are going to have a busy morning, overnight oats are the perfect breakfast to make the night before. You will have a ready-made breakfast when you wake up, which you can take to the office and eat at your desk. How is that for ultimate productivity!

This recipe is great when you need something to keep you energized until lunch. I’ve used blueberries in this recipe but you can substitute any local seasonal fruits you can get your hands on.
