5 Go-To Breakfast Ideas: quick and easy

Since most of us are in a rush in the mornings, we put together 5 breakfast ideas that you could complete in 10 minutes or less! Say goodbye to mornings where you run out the door empty handed because the omelet took too long!!

Our top five picks:

1. Overnight oats – Overnight oats consist of oats that are typically soaked in milk. Overnight, the oats soften and gain a creamy texture and consistency. Store in a container or mason jar in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Here’s our go to overnight oats recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup oats (We recommend these go-to packs)
  • 3/4 cup frozen blueberies
  • 2/3 cup almond milk (try out homemade almond milk!)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • **optional: sliced banana
  • **optional: drizzle honey

Directions: 

Mix all the ingredients together in a container, mason jar, or cup and place in refrigerator overnight (or for 8-10 hours). Then, top with sliced banana, blueberries, or a drizzle of honey.
