I am not a morning person and it seems the older I get, the more it takes to get me going in the mornings.  I do love breakfast, I always have.  My parents still laugh about me rolling out of bed when I was a kid and going directly to the kitchen for breakfast.  School mornings are especially hectic and a make ahead breakfast makes mornings so much easier.

Oats are one of my favorite breakfasts but as hot as it’s been in Oklahoma, a cold breakfast is sometimes appealing.  I’ve been seeing tons of recipes for overnight oats but I have to admit that I was pretty skeptical and unsure that I would like the texture.  I was pleasantly surprised and actually loved them.

I used Quaker® Old Fashioned Oats, milk, honey, a touch of cinnamon and my favorite berries along with a few toasted walnuts.  A simple combination but very tasty!  I made them just before bed and the next morning it was all ready to eat.  I added another drizzle of honey over the berries just before I ate them, so so good.

This was a much better breakfast than those hurried up mornings that I’m tempted to just grab something from the cookie jar.  I am really trying to consciously make better meal choices in order to feel good every day.  Life is never perfect, my days always seem to be unpredictable and a good breakfast seems to help add a little balance to my day.

Life on the ranch doesn’t offer a set schedule so breakfast is extra important.  Lunch might be at 10:30 in the morning or 3:00 in the afternoon.  Quaker® understands the importance of breakfast and continually provides products and recipe ideas to help make breakfast easy and delicious.

With Quaker® oats and milk my family can start the day strong.

  1. Now that’s my kind of recipe,thank you, I just saw your ham, mushroom,and spinach quiche and I need to try that to. Thank you for all the inspiration.

  2. Quaker is literally on the table almost every morning at our house, but I have yet to try overnight oats. Those berries totally sell me and I’m going to give it a go!

  3. Thank you so much for the wonderful recipe, I would love more recipes of different varieties. I love oatmeal but me too am not a morning person.
