If your mornings are a little too hectic to cook yourself something sustaining, try this easy overnight oat soak. Infuse hearty whole grain oats with nutritious milk and yogurt, flavored with peanut butter, while you sleep.

Ingredients

  • 1½ cups 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 large apple
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon honey, optional

Preparation

  1. Place the milk, yogurt and peanut butter in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Stir in the oats and cover; refrigerate overnight.
  2. In the morning, chop the apple. Divide the oat mixture between two bowls and top with the apples. Sprinkle with cinnamon and, if desired, drizzle with honey.

Serving Suggestion

For breakfast on the go, divide the oats into two one-pint, wide-mouth mason jars, — then just add the toppings in the morning. Consider other fruit toppings, such as bananas, pears, peaches, blueberries, strawberries or mangoes, based on what’s in season.
