Candy Bar Overnight Refrigerator Oatmeal

We absolutely love oatmeal, but Kathy Hester's OATrageous Oatmeals totally changed how we think of our favorite whole grain. Not only does she remix the classic with her take on breakfast (Banana Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes, anyone?), she also is crazy creative and turns oats into vegan sausage crumbles and pizza crust. This book is the perfect gift for any oatmeal lover, and it'll make an oatmeal lover out of anyone.

Eating these no-cook overnight oats is like eating a bowl of your favorite candy bar. Full of cocoa, coconut and almonds all mixed in with the goodness of oats and chia seeds—breakfast has never tasted sweeter! It's also gluten-free, soy-free, and oil-free.
