Do your kids hate hot cereal but you wish they’d eat their oatmeal? Or do you have a hard time making time for breakfast in the mornings?
Here’s an easy-to-follow yogurt oatmeal recipe that can make your mornings much easier as long as you take a few minutes the night before to prep.
Traditional oatmeal (no instant or quick oatmeal because the mixture will become too mushy).
Yogurt (we opt for a thicker yogurt, like Greek yogurt).
Fruit, nuts, granola, honey or maple syrup. Basically, chop up whatever you’d like to add to your cereal and set it aside.
The night before, fill up a jar halfway with the oats and add in an equal amount of yogurt. Mix, close the lid and refrigerate overnight. You can add chia seeds too if you want an extra nutrition punch.
In the morning, add whatever fruits, nuts, granola and sweeteners you left handy the night before, and voila! You have an instant breakfast that tastes good and is good for you!
Why We Love It
This one is amazing because all you have to do in the morning is mix in the fruits, nuts, and granola and go. Anything that saves us time in the morning (aside from skipping breakfast) is deserving of applause.
