Overnight Oatmeal Breakfast Parfait

Overnight Oatmeal Breakfast Parfait

This overnight oatmeal breakfast parfait is the perfect breakfast for people on the go. Or, just sit down and enjoy this with your first cup of coffee.

I like a good breakfast but when I'm working I never seem to find the time to make myself breakfast. I usually grab a greek yogurt and eat when I get to work but that never seems to be enough.

So I tried this overnight breakfast parfait with oatmeal, Greek yogurt, and fresh fruit. This really fills me up and holds me over until lunchtime.

Overnight Oatmeal Breakfast Parfait: Ingredients

1/2 cup Quaker old-fashioned oats
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (I recommend Penzeys Vietnamese Cinnamon)
1/3 cup almond milk or, (regular milk)
1 strawberry diced
1/4 cup fresh berries or, (frozen)
1 container 5.3 oz. plain Greek Yogurt

Make these in a 16 oz. glass, mason jar or, what I use is a 16 oz. Ziploc container with the screw on lid. This makes these so convenient to just grab and go.


Overnight Oatmeal Breakfast Parfait: Let's Make One

  1. First I put in the oatmeal and then added the cinnamon and stirred together. 
  2. Next, I added the almond milk and stirred again.
  3. Then add the diced or sliced strawberry.
  4. I spooned in the yogurt over the top and smoothed it out.
  5. Then topped it off with the berries. (Or fruit of your choice)
  6. Close the lid or cover your jar and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning you'll have a perfectly delicious healthy breakfast to sit and enjoy or take it with you to work.

This is another simple recipe that is so versatile. You can use any kind of fruit that you like. Between the oatmeal and the plain Greek yogurt, this is packed with 21g of protein. Or, you could add some nuts for even more protein.

As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy.
