Weekday mornings are hurried, there's just no way around it -- especially during the school year. While we can't help you make every element of the morning easier, we can at least offer a solution to expedite the breakfast part of it: overnight oats.  

The beauty of overnight oats is that they're prepared the night before (hence the name) and left in the fridge overnight to soften. Not only does the overnight mingling of the oats and their add-ins make them taste delicious, it also makes for a breakfast you can grab straight from the fridge in the morning without any effort -- aside from lifting spoon to mouth.
