Recipe Repost: Refrigerator Oatmeal

Three years ago, I posted this recipe for overnight oats. This is still one of my very favorite breakfasts to whip up in bulk for the week! You can add in whatever you may have in your fridge or pantry: berries, coconut flakes, chia seeds, honey, a spoonful of peanut butter ... mix and match to your heart's content! Enjoy this repost from July 2012, and happy breakfasting!
- April


We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day ... but when it's time to run out of the door in the morning, it's sometimes all too tempting to just grab a quick cup of coffee and call it a meal.

I've always been a breakfast lover, but I am also a bit of a procrastinator.  In the morning, every minute counts when it comes to getting ready -- and I hate being late to work.  I want a breakfast that is simple, healthy, and quick to grab.

Refrigerator oatmeal is an easy concept that you prepare the night before, and the best part is, preparation only takes a minute or two.

While there are many variations out there, I choose a pretty simple mixture of 1/4 cup uncooked steel-cut oats and 1/2 cup vanilla-flavored almond milk.

I vary the add-ins based on what I have on hand.  Frozen banana slices are an easy add-in, and these diced apples were tasty.  Other favorites have been diced peaches and blueberries.  Tomorrow I'll try adding in strawberries that I picked up at the farmer's market on Saturday.

Cinnamon is always a good add-in for me, and sometimes I add in a half or full packet of a sweetener.  Honey would be a great substitute.

Top it with a lid and give it a good shake ... into the fridge it goes overnight!

The next morning, this can be enjoyed cold with a spoon right out of the jar.  It has a consistency like muesli -- very good for a warm summer morning.

Have you tried this recipe yet?  What quick weekday breakfast do you enjoy most?
