Just like everyone else who is busy with life, I tend to find something simple and quick to make as I rush out the door or too tired to cook at the end of the day. So I thought what would be better than a few posts containing some simple, quick and of course fresh and tasty recipes to accommodate every one's "busy season."
Let's start with breakfast!
Blackberry Banana Overnight Oats
While I tend to be a savory breakfast eater (watch for that post next week) these overnight oats are perfect for anyone on the go!
Ingredients3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup non-fat plain or honey Greek yogurt (I use Trader Joe's Non-Fat Honey Greek Yogurt)
2/3 cup low-fat or skim milk
1 large or 2 small bananas
4-6 ounces fresh blackberries
honey (optional for drizzle)
In a medium bowl combine the rolled oats, Greek yogurt, and milk. Next either divide mixture evenly into three 6-ounce jars with lids or simply cover the bowl and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, carefully mash the bananas and blackberries in a medium bowl until combined. Add the mashed mixture to the overnight oats and enjoy.
Optional: If using the plain Greek yogurt you may want to drizzle a bit of honey on top to add some sweetness.
Notes: Any preferred fruit can be substituted. Also, adding nuts and/or granola would be yummy.
