my sister recently gave me this super simple recipe to make oatmeal for breakfast. the awesome part is that it takes you no time in the morning to make! plus, it “cooks” itself in the refrigerator overnight, so it is literally the easiest oatmeal you’ve ever made (and far better-tasting than any microwave oatmeal you’ve had).
introducing the cast:
a word about these ingredients:
-greek yogurt - it doesn’t have to be greek yogurt. and it doesn’t have to be honey-flavored (you can add honey into the recipe, if you want to). whatever flavor/type/brand of yogurt you use and like works fine.
-milk - you can also use any kind of milk you like.
-chia seeds - these are totally optional. but they’re also totally good for you.
-berries and peaches - you can use whatever fruit or berry you’d like. chop it up fresh in the morning, or mix in some frozen fruit the night before.
mix together the oatmeal, yogurt, milk, and chia seeds (if you’re using them). stir it all together, cover, and set in the fridge overnight. that’s easy.
chop and prep your fruit the night before, if you want, or do it in the morning. again, what ever fruit or berries you want to use will be delisch.
this really is a great recipe! i tried it for the first time yesterday morning for breakfast. from the first bite, i knew we would be bff’s. i ate the leftovers for lunch. then i craved some more after dinner. i made it again last night. it’s like breakfast’s equivalent of the sundae. i just love it. i hope you do, too.
