Overnight Steel Cut Oats Breakfast is amazingly easy and good for you and your family. Do a few minutes work the night before and this no-cook, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, breakfast will be ready in under five minutes in the morning. A filling, delicious way to start your day.
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. My other overnight breakfast casseroles are for large crowds and require some time in the oven.
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.
Got a houseful of kids heading out the door? Set a Line up of these cups up 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 nutritious breakfast fits right in. I’m not working at full charge till mid-morning most days. I hum along late into the night and get up when it’s unavoidable. Mostly the dogs get me up. I feed them, hit the start button on the coffee pot, make toast, deliver breakfast in bed to Dave and I. We eat, read the news, and slowly unstick ourselves and get on with a new day.
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.
Overnight breakfast oats is Immensely more nutritious than toast and butter or jam. And it’s so easy! Especially for night people who start thinking about food at 10 p.m.
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. This breakfast is well textured. I can eat it without thinking of horrid slimy things. Which has happened to me occasionally with regular cooked, or soaked, 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 that digest slowly and keep you going. This breakfast won’t drop you on your butt craving a candy bar in two hours.

IN THE MORNING:
