I made this last night, and it was great! I added the frozen berries and chopped apple in with the oats overnight and it was a perfect grab and go breakfast for my busy morning.  This recipe is so easy my teenage daughter can make it the night before and have an easy healthy breakfast before she leaves the house.  I am going to try this with greek yogurt next!

I loved this recipe it was simple and my kids enjoyed it.

The directions for this recipe are listed in reverse order. :)

Thanks so much!  We just re-programmed the directions portion of the website to fix this problem.  This is one we overlooked.  Thanks to your alert, it's fixed now.
