You crumble a graham cracker into the oats and let it soak overnight.  Sound a bit weird? Perhaps.  While the graham cracker doesn’t stay crunchy, you get all the delicious graham cracker flavor.  And who doesn’t love graham cracker flavor?

I have a story.  

So I totally have this knack for picking out maternity swimsuits when shopping at Target.  The only problem is I’M NOT PREGNANT.  I tend to lean more towards one piece swimsuits because I think they’re 1) classier 2) more gorgeous than 2 pieces and 3) I feel less exposed in them.  

Yay body positively and two piece bathing suit wearers, but yay feeling like your special bits aren’t exposed to the world.  

So I was swimsuit shopping at Target and found one I liked and just before checking out, I realized it was a maternity swimsuit.  UGH.  I would’ve bought it, but I already accidentally bought a maternity swimsuit a year ago and the fit is all wrong and baggy once the swimsuit gets wet AND I assumed it’d be the same situation with this suit.  Where do you buy one piece swimsuits that don’t cost $300?

Don’t ya just wanna swim in that bowl of oats?

I do.

So I’ve discussed that I’m not a big fan of greek yogurt in my overnight oats/muesli.  I like them milky and yogurt free.  But my mind is blown with this combo.

Into the mix goes almond butter, ground flax, oats and graham crackers.  I think we should do a s’more muesli.  Now wouldn’t that be way too fun?  Actually I think it’d be just the right about of fun.

Back to the current situation.  Then I topped the muesli with grapefruit slices (so fresh<3), hemp seeds, pistachios and a bit more crumbled graham crackers.  It’s gonna be the most delish experience of your life…until the next fabulous food idea comes along.

  1. I love Land’s End bathing suits. I have one of their one-piece suits that looks just as beautiful now as when I bought it 7 years ago. They are made to last so their slightly higher price tag is worth it.  

  2. This recipe will come in handy this summer when I have leftover graham crackers after doubling up on chocolate and marshmallows while making smores… now those leftover graham crackers have a happy home :)

  3. Im MIND BLOWN by this unique oatmeal recipe!  Who would have thought to add graham cracker and grapefruit together?  You are a recipe genius!

  4. I agree that one piece bathing suits are so much more gorgeous!! Albion Fit has some really cute vintage ones for under $90-130. Still steep, but they’re so unique and fun!
    Also unique and fun— THIS RECIPE. I’ve never been a huge fan of grapefruit, but I think you’re convincing me to give it a second/third/fourth chance.

  5. Your love of graham flavor makes me very happy because I adore it and feel like it’s totally underrated. This is so creative and sounds freaking delicious!

  6. This remind me of my friend who totally accidentally bought a one-piece maternity swimsuit as well.  Apparently it’s a thing!

  7. Macy’s has awesome sales at the end of summer, but that won’t help you for this year! But make sure to check there for next season!

  8. Overnight oats with graham crackers and almond butter…I’m listening…
