I have NEVER enjoyed oatmeal. I remember eating it in my college dorm because it was quick, easy, and cheap, but I remember not enjoying it and just forcing myself to eat it. That only lasted a few weeks. Fast forward to February 2017 and I cannot get enough of these overnight oats! This is a quick breakfast on the go that takes little prep and effort but it is filling and healthy.
I like using:
1/4 cup of steel cut oats
1/4 cup of almond milk
a small mason jar
You can also use:
old fashioned oats/rolled oats
milk of your choice (skim/2%/soy…whatever you like or have on hand)
*Just make sure that the milk to oat ratio is the same.
Here are some topping options for you…
I love adding 1 tablespoon of chia seeds to my oats.
Peanut butter and Jelly Oats
These are so yummy. I add 1 tablespoon of almond butter or Adams peanut butter to the oats, I add 1 tablespoon of organic raspberry preserves (read the label and make sure you are getting one with whole-food ingredients and low sugar). I like to add fresh raspberries to the mix as well.
Other toppings I like to use are mandarin oranges and pineapple with toasted cocounut. I did not have a picture of this…but this is a yummy mix as well.
Even my kids love over night oats. They love the berry melody oats the best. They like adding strawberries as well.
This is a filling, healthy, and easy breakfast that will start your day off right.
