Mealthy tip:

To make this recipe vegan, use plain coconut yogurt and nut milk, and replace the honey with agave. To keep the sugar low, be sure to use plain yogurt and unsweetened peanut butter. Try swapping the honey for maple syrup for a slightly different flavor.

I like to eat these overnight oats cold in the summer and warm in the winter. Nice addition with the cherries, too. Sometimes we strawberries, but the cherries are our favorite. This is a good, easy recipe my wife and I both enjoy.

I've made overnight oats so many times, but never with cherries! This is now my new favorite combination. I don't know why I never though of it before! The chia seeds are great to help thicken up the consistency some. Love, love, love! Can't wait to make again tomorrow!

I did cherry and banana combo, and it was really good. However, I had to warm the peanut butter in the microwave in order to get the drizzle effect. Super quick and easy, I'm gonna do this again for my meal prep this week.

I made this recipe because I wanted something convenient for breakfast. I don't know if I am really saving myself that much time though because I still warm it up in the microwave the next morning. If you don't mind eating it cold, then it's super convenient, just grab and go. I've made it a few days in a row, each time adding a different fruit topping!
