Next in meal prep, a delicious single serve recipe to add to your breakfast rotation: Strawberry Peach Overnight Oats. Requirements for this tasty oatmeal include: planning ahead. I’m not trying to be dramatic, but these oats require some time in the fridge. The cinnamon-y maple-y goodness needs time to help the oats become one with the peaches and strawberries. Only a teeny, tiny amount of work is required. And I promise when you pull some delicious ready-to-eat oatmeal out of the fridge, it’ll be so worth it (jump to recipe).
I’m going to assume you’ve never had overnight oats before. You don’t cook them. Brew is probably more accurate. One night in the fridge and you’ve got about the same consistency of oatmeal you might get with few solid minutes in some boiling water. Only it’s summer, and I’m only into hot breakfasts if they involve cheese.
I like to put this oatmeal in mason jars for a few reasons: 1) mason jars are pretty rad and rustic looking; 2) they are super easy to prepare foods in individual or single serve portions. 3) space savers – they take up way less room than a few bowls (and come with lids!). I could go on. Basically, I just really like mason jars.
Think of the future happiness when you realize, in a morning haze, that breakfast is already made. Literally just grab a spoon. No heating, peeling, cracking, or slicing required.
If you’re planning a few of these in your weekly meal plan, try a couple different fruits in the rotation. Blueberries and bananas might be my next try. Lately, I’ve been getting back into unsweetened vanilla almond milk. If that’s not your thing, regular milk would work just as well (maybe add a very tiny amount of vanilla if you want, I like to use SweetLeaf Liquid Stevia Sweetener). Prep a jar before you go to bed – you can’t really go wrong.
