Hi loves! This is the easiest breakfast recipe ever! Even better, you make it the night before, so it’s ready to eat when you wake up. It’s quick, convenient and did I mention it takes like a dessert?! You have to try it!
1/4 cup steel cut oats (you can use old fashioned oats, but I love the texture of the steel cut. If you choose to use old fashioned, make sure that they’re not quick cooking or instant)
1/4 cup unsweetened original almond milk
1/4 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
2 tsp. chia seeds
1 tbsp. unsweetened shredded coconut
1 tsp. pure maple syrup
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup of fresh or frozen blueberries
I use mason jars for my overnight oats, but as long as you have some kind of container with an airtight lid you’ll be fine. Add the oats, almond milk, Greek yogurt, chia seeds, coconut, vanilla and blueberries to the container of your choice.
Put the lid on and shake until everything is well combined. Put it in the refrigerator before bedtime, and it’ll be ready to eat when you wake up.
When life gives you steel cut oats, make a parfait! This was my first time making steel cut oats, and I was very impressed. The texture is so hearty and creamy. I’m definitely going to be using them again. I wanted to do something a little different than my usual oatmeal routine, so I came up with this parfait. Hope you enjoy!
1 cup of Steel Cut Oats (you only need ¼ cup of cooked oatmeal for each parfait you make. Store the rest in the refrigerator if only making one)
3 cups filtered Water
Pinch of Sea Salt
Couple drizzles of Honey
1/4 tsp. Cinnamon
1/4 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
3 large fresh Strawberries sliced
Small handful of Blueberries
1 tbsp. sliced Almonds
Boil water and add salt and oats. Cover and reduce to low simmer, cooking for 15-20 minutes. In a separate bowl, mix Greek yogurt, a big drizzle of honey and cinnamon. Let oatmeal cool down when it is finished. Layer oatmeal, yogurt and berries in a glass, and top with sliced almonds. Finish with a drizzle of honey on top. (This recipe is for one parfait. Adjust accordingly for however many you’re making.)
Mix oats and almond milk in a bowl and microwave for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Add the cinnamon and a drizzle of honey and stir. Add the Greek yogurt and another drizzle of honey on top. Add sliced bananas and top with walnuts. Stir everything together.
