With just a bit of work before bed, you can have a fast but decadent breakfast in the morning. These overnight oats "cook" while you sleep. Toast almonds and chop figs the night before, so that when you rise, you can just stir in the fruit, nuts, honey and ricotta cheese for a hearty, sweet and creamy breakfast.

  2. In the morning, heat the oats, if desired, or eat cold. Top with ricotta, figs, almonds and honey.
  • Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled "gluten-free," as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.
  • To make ahead: When prepping the oatmeal the night before, measure, toast and chop the ingredients for the topping.
