Overnight Steel Cut oats breakfast is no bake! No cook! You can microwave it but even that is optional. It’s healthy and yummy. Great for frantically busy mornings.

This breakfast is another of my overnight breakfast recipes.  I love them! Do the work in the evening and wake up to breakfast ready to bake or eat.

My other overnight breakfast casseroles are for large crowds and require some time in the oven. But they are scrumptious too and disappear fast.

Easy Healthy Breakfast

Got a houseful of kids heading out the door? this is a healthy breakfast for kids. Try this!

Set a Line of these oat cups on the table. Stick a spoon in them. This is on par with the prep for a bowl of cereal but incredibly more nutritious.

What’s not to love.  In a pinch it can go in the car with you! But don’t forget the wipes 🙂

In my life, this easy breakfast recipe fits right in. Imagine Dave’s surprise when I delivered his breakfast in a cup rather than a plate.

He couldn’t figure out how I had produced a rather cute, complete, filling breakfast with coffee in the same amount of time as his morning toast. And he loved it! So did I.

Steel cut oats are my favorite type of oats for my homemade granolas and this breakfast. They have a nutty flavor and chewy texture I love. I am not a fan of slimy gelatinous cooked rolled oats.

The Chia and flax add fiber and more nutrients. Apples, cinnamon and unsweetened coconut flakes top it off. The only sweetener is pure organic maple syrup. Way better than a bowl of frosted flakes 🙂 And this breakfast is filling.

These carbs are good carbs with fiber that digests slowly and keeps you going. This breakfast won’t drop you on your butt craving a candy bar in two hours.
