Eggnog Overnight Oats

Every December I think that I love eggnog. Then I remember – I’m okay with eggnog, but I don’t love it enough that I would enjoy a glass of it. I hate drinking anything but water (and coffee and tea and wine) so I don’t know why I think I want to drink things. I just like to taste things, you know?

Anyway, so I found almond eggnog at Whole Foods and luckily it only has 50 calories for a 1/2 cup. As I poured my first glass I wondered – how am I going to get through an entire container of this? Enter overnight oats.

These overnight oats have made me feel really festive. I’ve had them 3-4 times but I still have SO. MUCH. ALMONDNOG left. These are gluten free (with gluten free oats of course), vegan (if you don’t add yogurt at the end) and raw if you’re like that crazy of a person. I’m jealous of your insanity.
