Are you looking for an easy breakfast recipe? If so, you’re in luck! Growing up, I hated breakfast. Not because I didn’t like sugary Lucky Charms or Pop Tarts, or sweet oatmeal but because I always got a bad tummy ache upon eating it. My parents would give me granola bars instead just so I’d have something in my system in the morning. I couldn’t understand why my body was repulsed to breakfast. I might add that I dislike eggs which seemed to further convince me that my body was anti-breakfast.
While checking out Pinterest a month ago I stumbled on a beautiful picture of oatmeal and fresh berries. Thankfully it linked somewhere (don’t you just hate it when it doesn’t?) and the rest is history. Their recipe called for plain oatmeal, but since I heard steel cut oats were more nutritious I decided to give those a try.
So when I say I decided to give those a try, let’s just say steel cut oats got a good laugh out of me. I tried following the directions on the box, but unfortunately either my stove didn’t agree with the directions or I don’t have the patience to sit and stir for a half an hour (most likely the latter). Sorry! Impatience is my middle name.
While scouring the net I found an awesome recipe via FitSugar for steel cut oats that you make overnight. Let’s just say they saved my life, and they’re super easy to make. Thanks to this recipe I now love breakfast, and if you despised it as much as I did, I hope you’ll come to love it too! As my grandma always told me every morning “it’s the most important meal of the day.” 😉
FYI: Be sure to follow FitSugar’s steel cut oats recipe and this should be a breeze! PS I adapted Women’s Health magazine’s oatmeal recipe, here’s the link!
Delicious No Fuss Oatmeal Breakfast
- 1 cup of steel cut oats
- dab of raw honey
- 1/2 cup of Greek Yogurt
- 1 banana
- 4 strawberries
- 1/4 cup of pineapple
- handful of raspberries
- 1/2 tsp of chia seeds
1) I put 1 cup of already prepared steel cut oats in a bowl, and added a dab of raw honey. I then put it in the microwave for about 45 seconds.
2) I stirred the oats and raw honey together, added 1/2 a cup of Greek yogurt, and mixed in 1/2 tsp. of chia seeds.
3) I then topped it with fruit. PS I am so my grandmother’s granddaughter and typically don’t measure out my toppings. Please feel free to add as much or as little fruit as you’d like.
I love this breakfast recipe! As someone who has a Pinterest board titled, “I hate breakfast, breakfast”, this recipe has me thinking I’m a Pinterest fraud and need to change it. All it took was a simple no fuss recipe, and I’m hooked! It’s now turned into my favorite no fuss time of the day.
