posted in: General, Healthy Recipes | 0

It’s that time of year, and back to school means busy mornings. When I was in school, it seemed like there was never enough time for breakfast. I usually just grabbed whatever was handy or ate something on the way out the door.

I wish that I had known about overnight recipes back then! This Overnight Crockpot Banana Bread Oatmeal just takes a few minutes to throw together at night. Let yourcrock pot cook it while you sleep, and then, it’s ready in the morning (affiliate link). Just slice up a banana, throw on some brown sugar and nuts, and you have a yummy, healthy breakfast.
