Ever since we got rid of our microwave, I have been looking for a good breakfast alternative for my husband and I. We don’t eat much cereal anymore and my husband goes to work super early, so cooking something every morning is out of the question. I tried a few recipes for overnight oats in the fridge, but couldn’t find a recipe that I really enjoyed. We use steel cut oats and the texture was never right.
After several tries, I finally found a mix of ingredients that works! I was determined not to replace our microwave and this seems to have done the trick.
Overnight Steel Cut Oats
Mix equal parts uncooked steel cut oats, whole milk Greek yogurt and almond milk. Stir to combine and refrigerate overnight. Mixture will thicken and you can add fresh fruit, granola, cinnamon or just eat as is.
You can use any type of yogurt you like, we just prefer the thicker texture of Greek yogurt. You could even make your own yogurt! Any type of milk would work as well, we are just trying to limit our dairy intake so almond milk works for us. We like to crumble one of these Cinnamon Chip Protein Bars over the top each morning.
This has been such a great breakfast option for us, I can quickly make two servings every night while cleaning up the dinner dishes. Just throw it in the fridge and my husband has an easy no-cook option each morning.
I’d love to hear any suggestions you have for easy breakfast options, please share!
