I am always on the go in the morning. It’s not that I wake up too late, it’s just that I lounge around with my coffee too long. All of sudden it’s, “Oh crap, I’m late!” Then the rush is on. So I like to have something easy and filling to grab on my way out the door. This simple recipe uses 4 ingredients and is super quick & easy to make.
◊ ½ cup of rolled oats
◊ ½ cup of vanilla (or plain) yogurt
◊ ⅔ cup of almond milk (unsweetened vanilla)
◊ Sprinkle of cinnamon
◊ Mason jar or container
Mix all of the ingredients in a mason jar or container. Then let it sit in the refrigerator overnight, or for at least 3 hours.
You can substitute the vanilla yogurt for any kind you like (greek, strawberry, plain). Same goes for the milk. I am all about almond milk these days, but you can use regular, rice, or any variation.
After you take it out of the refrigerator, you can eat it just how it is or you can jazz it up by adding different fruits or chopped up walnuts. Raspberries and blueberries are my favorite. The other morning, I added blackberries and a sliced up a banana and it was a little sweet & tangy party in my mouth. Sometimes I will drizzle a little bit of raw honey on top too. Play around with different fruit combos and get creative with it.
If you try this, let me know what extras you added to it that you love. Do you have any quick and easy breakfasts that save you time in the morning?
