Oatmeal Yogurt Breakfast Blend



Phew. We've made it to hump day!

Rocky wanted me to first tell you all thank you for the birthday messages. He says he had a fantastic day and has the best parents in the world (this is an already well known fact). We bought him some new toys and bones, took him for a long walk and car ride, and I made him these peanut butter and oatmeal cookies in the oven....


It's safe to say he loved them.

Anyways, today I have a new favorite breakfast recipe to share!

Just like most of my other recipes, this is SO simple but tastes really yummy. I don't eat dairy that much anymore, but sometimes I want a yogurt every now and again, so this is my special treat for when I do have it. 

If you want an easy, healthy breakfast to add to your morning routine-this is it!

What You Need:

+1/2 cup oats, uncooked
+1/2 cup yogurt
+1 peach (cut into small pieces), or you can use any fruit you'd like!

 
 What You Do:

Combine oats and yogurt in mason jar. 

Mix well so all the oats are fully coated in yogurt. 

Add your peaches. 

Refrigerate for 8 hours.



The yogurt softens the oats overnight and in the morning you wake up with a delicious, already prepared breakfast!

note: if you aren't an oatmeal fan, make a parfait and use granola!

Easy peasy.

Has anyone made this for breakfast before? 
Give it a try!

  6. Overnight oats are delicious. I always mix the oats in the yogurt and refrigerate overnight. You can also do the same thing with almond milk ;)

  11. Awww.. Rocky looks SO cute! Glad he enjoyed his evening! I feel bad now that we don't get so much into Levi's birthday now so I have to step up my game! The breakfast dish looks so yummy! My fiance Rob has been quickly making grits and eating them on the way to work and I end up finding odd dishes in the car (which really gripes me).. I want to try this for him because he needs more fruit and more diary in his diet. Thanks for the idea!!

  14. That looks awesome! Last summer I ate yogurt & strawberries every morning for breakfast, but this summer it turns out I'm at least a little bit lactose-intolerant. It sucks. Sometimes I'll just suck it up for some froyo.
