Strawberry Pretzel Overnight Oatmeal

:D

Yes! Pretzels!


Strawberry pretzel bars are a bake sale, potluck, and picnic favorite. They are a lovely blend of sweet and salty. They begin with a bottom "crust" of crushed pretzels. Above that is a thick layer of cream cheese. Finally, the top layer is jello-fied strawberries.


Not so vegan, and not so healthy.

Thus, I worked a little kitchen magic, and I am now ready to present to you Strawberry Pretzel Overnight Oatmeal. The "cream cheese" layer is replaced by Yogurt Overnight Oatmeal, and I used fresh strawberries instead of the jello abomination. However, you could also use strawberry chia seed jam instead of fresh strawberries. That was way too much work for me, though. ;)


This is crazy delicious! Don't be afraid to eat a few pretzels for breakfast. :) What's the worst that could happen?
