I did it! I made an overnight oats recipe. And it. is. good.
I used inspiration from the oatmeal flavor for this one, dates and walnuts. But actually, I prefer it with pecans. Don’t tell.
They are the softest, flavorfullest, yummiest cookies ever. And they are packed with fruit, nuts, and oats too!
They taste like Christmas with their chocolate, sugar, and cinnamon combo. In fact, I just might need to make them for a holiday party this year.
Last year for one of the holiday parties with Mitchy’s family, I attempted a stuffed mushroom dish that turned out embarrassingly badly. The mushrooms became cold and soggy, and the taste was too bitter. It was pretty terrible, and even though a few people tried them out of pity, they were pretty awful. Sometimes you hit, and sometimes you miss, eh?
In one word? Scrumptious.
The strawberries are tart, the crust is soft and warm, and the topping is sugary and earthy. They are very dense, so it doesn’t take too much to make the world a happy place for you. Personally, I enjoy mine with hot cocoa. I have never really had a taste for coffee, but I will bake coffee cake all day long if it gives me an excuse to drink more hot chocolate.
