Breakfast on the Go

041b7463620cef8f654fd913753ddae2

Breakfast has literally been the most difficult meal for us when it comes to eating sugar free (any added sugar.) I generally just grab an apple or banana with a glass of ice water and I am on my way. I typically make my husband a nice big breakfast with eggs and what have you but I can’t make that for him every day for many reasons including time management. So I originally made granola for him to eat, which did last a bit but he really wanted something that he could eat like cereal. I went to my favorite source (Pinterest) for help and I came across the greatest thing ever! Over Night Oats. This is the greatest idea out there! It is very easy, time efficient, and absolutely delicious!

I have said it once and I will say it again- my husband is a VERY picky eater and I was originally apprehensive about making this for him but I gave it a shot. I grabbed two of our mason jars (does not have to be in jar), I first added 3/4 cup of old fashioned oats to the bottom. I then added a tsp of honey and in one I added cinnamon. Next I sliced up fruit and placed it in. One jar I sliced up berries like strawberries, blueberries and blackberries. In the jar that had the cinnamon, I sliced up an apple. Finally, I poured unsweetened almond milk. Then just placed in the refrigerator “over night”.

The next day was Sunday which is a super busy day for us and we just don’t have time to make breakfast. I offered it to my husband and he said he would try it. Mr. “I -don’t-like-oats” LOVED it! He said it was very similar to eating a parfait and then went on asking for different ways to make him some.
