Mornings are usually a rush and having a grab-and-go breakfast is a great way to reduce any possible stress if running late. Overnight oats can be prepared on Sundays and will hold all week until you are ready to enjoy. I like making enough for several days so that I don’t have to think much in the morning. This recipe is dedicated to my father, Jerry Kent, who always “celebrated” a special occasion with a carrot cake!
