fruity overnight oats on a kitchen counter by Christine Tizzard

Let the fridge do all the work with these easy overnight oats. Oatmeal has always been a great way to use up pantry staples, nuts and seeds, and a mishmash of fruit and berries, fresh frozen or past their prime. Here is my basic recipe for fruity overnight oats that you can adapt to whatever fruit you have on hand.
