Back-to-school time often puts an increased pinch on morning time. Most families need quick, make-ahead ideas to have on hand to grab and go for a quick, nourishing weekday breakfast. This is a super-easy idea that takes just a little prep time over the weekend and you can have breakfast ready for the whole week.
The basic recipe starts with combining the following in an 8 ounce mason jar or other container with lid:
• ¼ cup old fashioned oats
• 1/3 cup milk
• ¼ cup Greek yogurt
• 1 tsp. chia seeds
Add 1-2 tsp. sweetener of your choice (honey, maple syrup, fruit spread) and shake well to combine. Add ¼ = 1/3 cup fruit and stir. Refrigerate overnight or even a couple of days.
3 of my favorites (recipes credit www.theyummylife.com):
1. Raspberry Vanilla
• 1 Tbsp. raspberry jam (all-fruit spread)
• ¼ tsp. vanilla extract
• 1/3 cup fresh raspberries
2. Cocoa Banana
• 1 tsp. honey
• 1 Tbsp. cocoa
• ¼ cup sliced banana
3. Blueberry Maple
• 2 tsp. maple syrup
• ¼ cup fresh blueberries
Enjoy! And Happy Back to School!!
