When my sister, Rebe, and I lived together last year, overnight oats were a daily ritual for us. Each night we’d brush our teeth and get ready for bed, then head to the kitchen in our PJs.

Together, we’d scoop oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, and nuts into a pint-sized mason jar. Some days it would be with dates and almonds, and others it would be with blueberries and maple syrup.

We’d place the jar in the fridge and off to our beds we’d go.

-I’m getting a little nostalgic thinking about it now, working with my little sis in the kitchen, making something together so effortlessly.-

Aaanyways.

Overnight oats are a simple and nutritious breakfast all year round. This version, with dried cranberries, orange, and Valdosta pecans, is insanely delicious!

It was always so fun waking up in the morning and peeking into the fridge to see how the oats turned out. Of course the answer was always “well,” because overnight oats are amazing.

This winter, I plan on making overnight oats for almost every breakfast. It’s easy and uncomplicated– throw a bunch of stuff into a jar and let it sit overnight. In the morning, no need to prepare anything. Just grab your jar and nosh.

This version of overnight oats is my absolute new favorite: Cranberry Orange Pecan.

It’s made with Sahale Snack’s Valdosta Pecans Glazed Mix, a bright combination of Georgia pecans, orange zest, dried cranberries, and a little black pepper for a kick.

Sahale asked me to create a recipe using one of their nut mixes, and holy cow was it hard to choose which mix to use. I had the opportunity to sample all of them at a recent Sahale event in Boston, and I couldn’t stop eating everything.

Typical.

Sahale was originally created to fill a void in the snack market with nutritious, delicious, and exciting fruit & nut mixes on the go. What I loved about the mixes is that they didn’t taste overly sugary like so many other nut mixes out there. Everything was done in perfect flavor harmony, and with minimal ingredients.

The result, in my experience, is that you can actually incorporate these nuts into granolas, oatmeal, and overnight oats easily.

Though, also in my experience, they might not even make it that far. My first bag of Valdosta pecans was set aside strictly for snacking purposes, and, well, they were gone after 3 days 🙂

I love overnight oats! And I”m with you on nut mixes being too salty/sweet/unhealthy for what they should be- this brand sounds like a winner 🙂

Sounds wonderful, but the cranberries appear to be missing from the ingredient list. Did you use dried or fresh? How much did you use?

Hi Lorie! The cranberries are in the pecan mix from Sahale. If you would like to add in your own, make sure they’re dried cranberries and use about 1 tablespoon
