When you're as obsessed with Christmas and healthy living as I am, it feels like a joyful, miraculous moment of serendipity when those worlds collide. One of those moments? A healthy holiday goody that doesn't feel like a compromise or a sacrifice: these spiced, decadent "eggnog" overnight oats.
When I got some almond nog delivered to me, I immediately wanted to experiment with it and make recipes as opposed to drinking it straight from the carton (well . . . I did that, too). These oats use the standard 1:1 oats-to-almond-milk overnight oats ratio, but I swapped nog for the plain milk, and added a little extra holiday spice (bring on the nutmeg, amirite?)
The result? A lightened-up, dairy-free breakfast that tastes like Christmas morning. And you can take it to your office! It's a breakfast miracle.
