Breakfast food is one of my favorite food categories. I prefer to make breakfast for dinner due to my serious lack of morning enthusiasm. I was not created with a morning “go to!” attitude…. therefore, I don’t usually have the internal fortitude to cook a full meal before 8:00 AM. I lean toward plenty of coffee, cereal, oats, toast, etc. My kids prefer when my husband is here because he will get up and make an eight course breakfast for them (thank you God for a husband who is a morning person!). Here is a recipe for overnight oats. These are always delicious and my kids love them too! You can make these the night before in a coffee cup, mason jar, or a bowl. I hope you love this recipe!
Overnight Steel-Cut Oats
You will need (per person):
- 1/2 c of raw steel-cut oats
- 1 1/4 c milk (if you are using fat free, add an additional 1/4 c)
- 1 tsp honey
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
In a cup or bowl, add in the steel-cut oats, milk, cinnamon, and honey. Give it a big stir. A side note- fat-free milk will absorb a lot more than a fattier milk. Add in 1/4 cup more if you are going the fat-free route. Cover with plastic wrap or a paper towel and place in the fridge for 8 hours.
In the morning, give it a big stir and eat it with a spoon (like cereal). There should be liquid still hanging around. If not, give it a little splash before eating. These are delightfully chewy and have a wonderful mouth feel.
I hope you love this recipe!
Lots of love and many blessings.
Blessed are those who dwell in your house, O Lord;
they never cease to praise you.
