The idea is that you throw the ingredients together the night before and take to work the next day for breakfast. Easy and quick!
I've made two so far and I've enjoyed them thoroughly. I try and avoid dairy as much as I can, so this first one was an experiment even for me. I went with the Fage yogurt, as that's a great authentic Greek yogurt, but I think I'll skip it from here on out. I also found that stirring the ingredients all together in a jar was kind of a pain in the booty, depending on the size of the jar. Jess came up with the great idea of putting everything in a tupperware container, which worked much better, for the record.
Breakfast in a Jar
1/3 cup Fage Yogurt
1/2 cup rolled oats (Bob's Red Mill GF Oats)
1 ripe banana, sliced
A sprinkle of cinnamon for taste
1/3 cup coconut milk (the kind in the carton, not the can)
1 TBSP honey
1 1/2 TSP almond butter
1. Add all ingredients in jar and stir.
2. Put in the fridge overnight.
3. Take out of the fridge the next morning, before you leave for work in a hurry.
4. Eat at work, making everyone else jealous and hungry.
The other one I tried, in the tupperware container, was way easier to mix. I used Bakery on Main's GF Maple Multigrain Muffin instant oatmeal. I really like this one because it has chia seeds, flax, and quinoa in it. It was amazing and I hardly had to add any other ingredients.
Breakfast in a Tupperware Container
(Not as easy or fun to say, I know)
1 pack of instant oatmeal
1 banana, sliced
1/3 to 1/2 cup coconut milk
Follow the same steps, above, and enjoy!
There is a vast amount of recipes out there for these instant oatmeal ideas. You can add berries, mango, or raisins. Maybe throw in some maple syrup or peanut butter. I even saw one for Rocky Road Oatmeal, so maybe give that a try. Whatever you do, have fun and enjoy the deliciousness of it!
