I like quick breakfasts because when I wake up in the morning the last thing I want to do is spend a long time making breakfast. Overnight oats are great because they're fast and require minimal clean-up. That's my main gripe about scrambled eggs. They cook up quickly, but I always find cleaning the pan a pain in the you-know-what.
I usually mix just about anything into my oats (coconut is surprisingly tasty) and one of my absolute favorite mix-ins are chopped dates. This one combines dates with chopped walnuts and warm cinnamon and nutmeg.
Date-Nut Overnight Oats
1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
1/3 cup milk
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Combine the oats, milk, nutmeg and cinnamon in a bowl. Let chill in the refrigerator over night. In the morning, mix in the dates and walnuts.
