This overnight oats recipe requires just 6 ingredients (one of which is water), and you can prep it at night so it's ready to go in the morning since it has to chill in the fridge. Using the microwave to heat it up makes for the most convenient breakfast ever. Top the oatmeal with deliciously honeyed apples for a sweeter treat. You can also make a big batch of the oatmeal so you can have breakfast on hand for you and your family throughout the week.
