Morning time has been semi-rough for me lately. My beloved one-year-old dog has decided to return to infantilism/puppy-ism and wake up several times throughout the night for potty trips. Come 6 a.m., my snooze alarm gets quite the workout because of these nightly frolics. I have written about needing a post-workout motivation before in the form of yummy recovery smoothies (works every time for me!) but this amazing and incredibly easy recipe has been my get-out-of-warm-snuggly-puppy-bed motivation for the past few mornings. It is also comforting on these cooler mornings – we are heading into a real Georgia fall, folks! It does exist I am told! This overnight recipe makes my mornings less complicated and super delicious. Happy Friday!
