Overnight Fruit Cobbler

Even though I used to think preparing your oats the night before was a silly idea. . . the more I do it, the more I like it.  This recipe, inspired by Clean Eating Magazine, has whole grains, good fat, fresh fruit, and just a small amount of added sugar.  Mine has dairy and probiotics in the yogurt.  The 100% cacao in the non-alkalized cocoa has flanonoids that may promote extra health benefits.   

I did look forward to my breakfast.  It was not so sweet and very filling.  The protein and nutrient density was perfect preparation for my early morning water aerobics class!
