I’ve been trying to start my day better with a healthy and filling breakfast and I need some ideas! Usually in the summer, I tend to do a protein shake because I like the cold milkshake kinda thing when it’s a hot day. However, now that the weather is getting cooler, I’m craving warm stick-to-you-ribs type of food.
On weekends I like to make eggs and a bagel, or a ham, egg and cheese bagel sandwich, but I need something that I can take with me on workdays.
Which brings me to oatmeal.
Instant oatmeal is just kind of blegh. The instant brown sugar cinnamon kind is yummy, but full of sugar and not very good for you. I’ve tried other *less sugary* packets and they just turn into a tasteless mush that I have to force myself to eat.
In my imagination I want to make something over the weekend and put it into single serving containers for me to grab and take to work each morning.
There are certainly hundreds of make-ahead oatmeal recipes out there on the internet, but I wanted to see if you all had some you actually REALLY like. Maybe something with oatmeal in the crockpot? Perhaps with some bananas or maple syrup or something?
Leave me a recipe or link in the comments!
