In honor of my favorite season, I decided to make this fall festive breakfast oatmeal. Since I always wake up late and rush to work, I never have time to make myself an interesting breakfast. After a while, it gets boring eating the same thing every morning.

These over night oats are super easy, convenient and are great on a cold fall morning. Just make them the night before, heat in the microwave in the morning and you are all set!! I decided to use pumpkin yogurt in this recipe instead of plain to give it a fall taste!

Ingredients:

  • ¼ c steel cut oats
  • ½ c milk – fat free
  • ⅓ c plain yogurt – low fat (I used Chobani pumpkin yogurt)
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbs peanut butter – natural
  • ¼ banana – sliced
  • ½ apple – cored and diced
  • Chia Seeds (I added these in for some protein)

Directions:

  1. In an almost-empty peanut butter jar or another resealable glass jar or tupperware, combine all ingredients except banana and apples.
  2. Seal and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Top with banana slices and diced apple in the morning.

Notes:

  • Serve cold, room temp or pop in the microwave for 30 seconds to warm. Steel cuts will have a nice chew to them but if you prefer to cook them further, add ¼ c extra milk and microwave for 90 seconds.
