Maple Almond Overnight Oats

If you live in the Northeast, you are probably well aware of the major heat wave that hit last week. Yeah, it was a doosey! Waking up at 6:45 a.m. only to see it was 75 degrees was shocking to say the least. I don’t think it is really ever that warm so early in the morning, which is one of the reasons I adore running at home. Due to the “extreme” heat, I only craved cold, uncooked food for most of the day. Breakfast was no exception.
