Elder Berry Syrup Overnight Oats

Ingredients for making overnight oats with elder berry syrup and other ingredients on table

Elderberry
is traditionally used to support a healthy immune system*, so I'm always searching for ways to integrate it into my meals. And one of my recent New Year's resolutions was to speed up my morning routine. Just imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon this recipe that combines my quest for a daily dose of elderberry with my need to buy back time in my day.

While making your own elderberry syrup is pretty darn easy, when you get our Elder Berry Syrup**, all the work is done for you by our talented team of extract and syrup makers at our headquarters in Eugene, Oregon. The syrup lends a touch of sweetness and beautiful color to this super simple overnight oat bowl, but it's quite tasty on its own too.
