First and foremost, I love 'overnight oatmeal.' I make a few over the weekend, so I have them ready to go for instant and hearty breakfasts throughout the week. I created this recipe on a whim when I had leftover roasted sweet potatoes. It tastes like a pumpkin pie, but, with its natural sweetness, you don't need any sweetener, which is what I love! It's hearty and healthy to boot. I served mine this morning with a sprinkle of toasted pecans and cinnamon.

I love overnight oatmeal and make mine using most of the ingredients listed for this one. While I like sweet potatoes I discovered with this recipe that I don't particularly care for them in my oatmeal. I think this is a personal preference type thing on my part. Others might really like this savory oatmeal but I'll probably stick with fruit in mine. Read More
