Happy New Years to everyone! I know with the new year that a lot of us are trying to make some changes in our lives, and often eating healthier is one of them. I wanted to share this recipe for a hearty and healthy breakfast that will fill your belly and tastes delicious. It takes about 5 minutes to put together the night before, I’ll prepare one of these sometimes while I have dinner in the oven when I have an early day at work the following day and I won’t have time to make a decent breakfast. I’ve taken them to work with me even to eat on my break.
1/4 cup old fashioned gluten free oats, uncooked
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup diced apple (I used gala, any variety works)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon chia seeds
Combine ingredients together in a container with a tight lid. Place in the fridge and allow to sit overnight – or about 8 hours. Open and enjoy for a quick and healthy breakfast! You can also change the fruit (I also like bananas with a bit of cocoa, mango, or blueberry!)
I wish all of you a safe and healthy 2015.
