Overnight No-Cook Oatmeal
Basic recipe is equal amounts of:
Dry oatmeal (not instant)
I used 1/2 cup of each of oatmeal, skim milk and Fage 2% Greek yogurt, and a half teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon allspice.
Mix together in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
The next morning, add your fruit of choice, and (if desired) a source of healthy fats.
I used a small banana and 1 ounce (32g) almond butter.
Mix together. You can serve this cold, but I preferred it warm.
The texture is incredibly smooth. It looks like “normal” oatmeal, but it is silkier and softer from the overnight soak.
Nutritional data (for just the basic recipe, not adding the banana or nut butter):
Sat fat: 2.7g
You can certainly reduce those numbers by using only 1/3 cup of each ingredient and using fat free yogurt. I just used what had on hand.
The variations are limitless. You can use different yogurts, fruits, butters (optional) and spices.
Note: Thanks for this recipe go out to a follower, Andrew Carpenter, for giving me this suggestion. This was an excellent and seriously simple breakfast. I will make and post variations as I try them.
