The Best Jar of Overnight Oats

by Meghann on June 1, 2010

Happy Monday Tuesday everyone!!

I can’t believe the 3 day weekend has come to an end. At least it was a good one. I feel very relaxed now. πŸ™‚

The alarm went of early this morning. Boooo!!

I had to drag myself out of bed and rush to make it to boot camp at my gym. I really enjoyed this morning’s session. I like how the boot camp class always switch things up so that one minute you are doing suicides, the next jumping jacks, and the next weights. You never get bored and you never know what to expect next. πŸ™‚

This was probably one of the BEST overnight oats in a jar I have ever created.


Why were they the best? Because they were made with my new favorite jar of nut butter in the whole wide world!


Naturally Nutty Cinnamon Vanilla Sunflower Butter!!

This jar of nut butter will surely be missed. There are no words for how good it is! I would say it is definitely worth the $9.99 per jar cost + $8.95 for shipping. In fact, I’m already β€˜this close’ to ordering another jar right now. I have it in the check out cart and am just waiting to press submit. πŸ™‚


Other Ingredients:

  • Last of Naturally Nutty Cinnamon Vanilla Sunflower Butter
  • 1/2 cup Oats
  • Plain Yogurt
  • Almond Milk
  • Cinnamon
  • Craisins
  • Cacao Nibs
  • Berries!



Good to the last drop.



Random Fact: I graduated from high school on May 16, 2003 and from Florida State University on April 27, 2007.

What years did you graduate?

I LOVE the sound of a boot camp class – wow! I want to go on a boot camp for my hen weekend πŸ˜› (if I have one obvs)!

2 Evan Thomas June 1, 2010 at 8:41 am

You should buy another! I need to place an order for butter toffee. I love that stuff.

I’m ’09 and ’13

3 Laura @ Backstage Pass to Health & Happiness June 1, 2010 at 8:43 am

The sunflower butter sounds good!
I graduated in ’00 and then ’09 – took a few years off on between to get my career started in the concert business πŸ™‚

4 Jenny June 1, 2010 at 8:46 am

I graduated high school in 2006 and will be graduating college this December!

5 Meg June 1, 2010 at 8:53 am

I graduated high school in 04, college in 08, and I’ll start graduate school in the fall – it’s a 3 year program, so I won’t graduate until 2013! It was definitely nice to take 2 years off and work full-time before returning to school!!

6 Anna June 1, 2010 at 8:56 am

Cheers to a four day week though, right?!?

I graduated high school in 2001, college in 2005, and grad school in 2008. Whew!

7 glutenfreecitygirl June 1, 2010 at 9:14 am

same with me! HS is ’01, undergrad in ’05, grad school in ’08. I’m going back to school (ahhhh, am I crazy??) for my doctorate and won’t graduate until at least 2014. Wow that looks weird writing ’14.

8 Madeline - Greens and Jeans June 1, 2010 at 8:58 am

That nut butter is definitely one of my favorites! Hurray for the class of 03 and 07!

12 Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday June 1, 2010 at 9:01 am

18 Jessie (Vegan-minded) June 1, 2010 at 9:19 am

I love Naturally Nutty so much! I have about two tablespoons left in my jar, and I will be very sad when it is gone. Totally worth the money, although I can’t afford to enjoy it all the time.

Class of ’99 for highschool and 2004 for college. πŸ™‚

19 Sara June 1, 2010 at 9:23 am

Yikes! Those dates made me feel old. πŸ™‚ I graduated high school in June of 1997 and college in May of 2001.

20 pursuitofhealthfulness June 1, 2010 at 9:25 am

Naturally Nutty is simply awesome. As much as I am sad for my jars to come to an end, I am happy I get to make overnight oats in a jar! Have a good few work days before your vacation!

21 runningwithsass June 1, 2010 at 9:28 am

HS- may 23, 2003

22 Erin June 1, 2010 at 9:29 am

High school was June 2004, college May 2008. It’s crazy that so much time has gone by.

23 epicourtusf June 1, 2010 at 9:30 am

YUM…those oats DO look pretty amazing! I graduated high school in 1999 and college in 2003!

32 adrienmelaine June 1, 2010 at 10:21 am

I love overnight oats! I always forget about them until the morning and end up making luke warm oats in the morning- in attempt to get that cold/overnight feel.

I graduated high school in 2003, University in 2010 (next month!)

33 Jojo June 1, 2010 at 10:29 am

I’m so impressed you were able to wake up early after the long weekend. I’m still dragging. The gym will have to wait until after work.

I graduated high school in 2002. College (also, FSU) in 2006. I’m currently keeping my fingers crossed that I will graduate from Grad school later this year!

34 Allie (Live Laugh Eat) June 1, 2010 at 10:33 am

That jar is pretty rad. So is the Pepita Sun Butter. See I can’t buy them online because I eat them like yogurt and they are empty in approximately 2 days. I don’t even make enough money in 2 days to pay for that! hahaha

35 theprocessofhealing June 1, 2010 at 10:57 am

YUM!! That sounds delicious!
I graduated high school in May of 2006 and I’m STILL in college. Yeah.

36 Amber June 1, 2010 at 11:14 am

Bahaha I love your random fact question out of nowhere πŸ˜‰ I graduated high school on June 28, 2006 and I WILL graduate university in two days on June 3, 2010!

37 Sarah for Real June 1, 2010 at 11:26 am

High School 2002, College 2006

It feels weird knowing I’m a year older than you… hahah. I don’t know why I always thought you were a teeny bit older than me, maybe because you sound so wise πŸ˜‰

38 thewhatkateateblog June 1, 2010 at 11:26 am

I graduated high school is 2006, and Im patiently waiting to graduate college next summer!

39 Katey June 1, 2010 at 11:32 am

Oh man, those oats look so good! Do you have to add yogurt to overnight oats, or can you use just milk or water?

40 Melissa @ For the Love of Health June 1, 2010 at 11:33 am

early morning boot camp? good for you!
do you eat anything prior to your workout? I don’t know if I could do something that intense first thing without food, especially since I pretty much cut out nighttime snacking.

Great looking oats! I have to try that nut butter!

Man- I have to think about graduation…I think it was 2001! yikes! Almost 10 years ago now!

41 jackie June 1, 2010 at 11:39 am

Hi Meghann, I noticed you always eat after your workout. Do you have a prework out snack in the morning? If not, how do you do it? I’m always starving in the morning and couldn’t imagine not eating if I was going to workout for more than 30min.

42 Meghann June 1, 2010 at 2:12 pm

I usually have half of a granola bar or a small handful of cereal. πŸ™‚

43 DiningAndDishing June 1, 2010 at 11:41 am
