Breakfast- Overnight Oatmeal

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

I have decided that there are two reasons I do not eat breakfast:
I am not hungry in the am;
I am lazy in the am!

So I decided that tonight I will try to make the overnight cold oatmeal. Majority of the recipes I found are meant for a slow-cooker, but I do not have one so I will try the cold version.

I have oats, light soy milk, and some dried cranberries. (and cinnamon) I can add a banana in the morning as well.
If any of you have tried this and know of any good tricks, please share!

    How did the oatmeal turn out? I looked up some recipes after reading your blog, but I've got the wrong kind of oats (instant).

    I'm usually not a big breakfast person either (unless I get to sleep in late, which is rare these days). I usually try to make myself have at least 200 calories with my coffee. Lately that has been an english muffin with a little cream cheese or nut butter. Sometimes, just a couple pieces of fruit.

    I eat a lot of organic oatmeal. Sometimes I just can't stand to look at another bowl of oatmeal. On my oatmeal I use a couple of loose teaspoons of brown sugar, some milk, fresh blueberries and 1/2 banana. Sometimes I will uses some chopped apples and walnuts on my oatmeal.

    I also take a cup of orange juice and add some sparkling water, which stretches the OJ and satisfies my like of carbonated beverages.

    Thanks, Bruce

    I am lazy in the mornings as well. Cereal is the mainstay here.

    There is the odd time that I will be ambitious and make banana muffins or some kind of porridge, but otherwise...Yep...I'll skip breakfast too.

    As for ideas...Got nothing. Sorry

    Almonds sound good- I was thinking of walnuts, but I think I will go with almonds instead. I will add them in the morning like you said for some crunch.

    It is good. It's very European. I would add some almond slivers for some crunch and fat in the morning.
