Yogurt is great for an easy breakfast as well as for a quick snack. I use Greek or plain yogurt for cooking, baking and as a substitute for sour cream. Lately I've been trying to find quick and easy breakfast options not only for my kids, but for me as well.
My kids get up pretty early for school, so the last thing on their mind is breakfast. Sometimes I feel like I am forcing them to eat, but I don't want the going off to school hungry either. Most times I'm lucky to get a smoothie, oatmeal, cereal, fruit or muffins and fruit down them.
This Overnight Refrigerator Oatmeal has been a wonderful option. This idea has been more adult friendly than with my kids. I just recently got my little guy to start eating hot oatmeal, so he wasn't too crazy about the whole cold oatmeal idea, but for me...... I love it!
Refrigerator oatmeal is an easy no cook breakfast perfect for any one on the go, or for someone who doesn't make time for breakfast. I make these up the night before and place them in individual mason jars for a perfect grab-and-go breakfast option.
Each of the flavors start with the same basic ingredients, vanilla or plain yogurt, steel cut oatmeal, almond milk (plain or vanilla), ground flax seed (not pictured), and fruit and nuts of your choice. Use honey or agave nectar to sweeten the oatmeal.
