With all the delicious lunches and dinners I have been having recently not a lot of my breakfasts have made it on the blog. I have been having breakfast though, lots of pancakes and my newest creation 2-minute oats. The idea for this breakfast originated purely from my lack of motivation to go downstairs in the middle of the night to prepare overnight oats. I love coming to the breakfast table in the morning with my breakfast waiting for me. However, when I’m too lazy to prepare breakfast the night before these 2-minute oats will just have to do the job!
The advantage: they aren’t freezing cold like overnight oats. Disadvantage: the texture is a bit runny. However, it’s the taste that counts!
They are very similar to overnight oats but I know that everyone prepares their oats in a different way so I thought I’d share my 2-minute oats “recipe” with you since I am sure there must be someone else out there who lacks motivation to prepare breakfast in the middle of the night, right?
As with most of my recipes this is one that you can adjust to your individual taste by changing the ratio of milk to yogurt or trying different yogurts. You can also get creative with the berries now that Summer is
fast approaching. The texture of the oats will by more runny than the overnights oats, simply because the oats will not have the 8-10 hours to soak. But if you don’t like your oats to be that runny simply reduce the amount of milk and add more yogurt/ cottage cheese.
Combine the following ingredients in a bowl:
- 1/3 cup porridge oats
- 1/2 cup milk
- 3-4 tbsp. yoghurt or Greek yogurt
- 1 tbsp. cottage cheese
- lots of cinammon (about 2 shakes, I add more!)
- 1/2 banana, sliced
- berries (optional, but add natural sweetness and make everything better)
- 2-3 drops of stevia (optional)
Have a great day
