Overnight Swiss Oats

A couple of years ago I found this recipe and was really impressed. Its easy, healthy and a nice change from cold cereal or regular oatmeal. This time of year especially many people are trying to lose weight and this is definitely a good recipe for that or those just trying to use heart-healthy recipes. Its always nice to have something you can assemble the night before and have ready to go on a busy morning.

What You Need:
 3 cups uncooked oats (quick-cooking or old-fashioned)
2½ cups skim, 1/2% or soy milk (I use vanilla soy milk and love it with this recipe)
 1/4 cup honey
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Combine above and soak overnight

-In the morning add:

 6 cups any variety of your favorite fresh or dried fruit such as banana, kiwi, any kind of berries (my personal favorite), apple, raisins, dried cranberries, cherries or apricots.

Then add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, pecans or almonds. I like slivered almonds! Serve cold.
