Oat lovers, are you ready for the solution to all of your “what do I eat for breakfast” problems? These recipes will restore your faith in breakfast (and in the power of oats), and your children will be satisfied and most importantly, healthy.
Here is the basic recipe to follow when making overnight oats:
1. First, mix rolled oats with an equal amount of your liquid of choice (for example, your favorite Oatworks flavor). You can use any combination of dairy or nondairy milk, yogurt, or even juice; just stick with the same basic 1:1 ratio. If you’re using steel cut oats, use more liquid to avoid gumminess.
2. Mix any spices, sweeteners, or dried fruit you prefer into the oats and milk.
3. Store in a glass jar and let the oats soak for at least three hours, (ideally overnight).
4. In the morning, you can add fresh fruit, nuts, and other favorite toppings to your oatmeal.
This first recipe only takes five minutes to make. How much easier could a healthy and fueling breakfast get?
