How many times have you heard, 'Breakfast is the most important meal of the day!' (with you sometimes being on the receiving end of a wagging, admonishing finger). With all due respect to the late Ronald Reagan, I'd helpfully add, 'I'm from breakfast rescue and I'm here to help.'
|Overnight oatmeal - twice as fun to eat!|
Make this 'no excuses' treat in seconds the night before, and it's ready when you are in the morning. For each serving, mix in a container:
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/3 cup yogurt (plain, vanilla, vanilla coconut or Greek with honey are best)
- 1/3 cup rolled or steel cut oats
- About 2 Tbsp of raisins or currants
- Generous pinch of cinnamon
- Small pinch of nutmeg
Cover, refrigerate overnight. Stir, top with (optional) nuts and ground flaxseed, and enjoy it right out of the fridge or heated to lukewarm in the microwave.
