These overnight oats safe me, whenever I have to get up early. I just prepare them in a screw top glas and simply grab them out of the fridge before I leave the house. Oats will not only boost your energy levels, and keep you full till lunch, they are also inexpensive. The nuts in this recipe give your breakfast a little crunch and if you like you can add raisins or cranberries.

1 – 2 carrots
1 tbsp almond butter

Whisk together the ingredients for the topping and add on top of the oat mixture.
Place in the fridge overnight. Enjoy the next morning and have an awesome start into your day!
