Breakfast practically makes itself with this No-Cook Oatmeal with Berries Recipe! You guys this is the start to a healthy day with a breakfast that’s quick, delicious and requires no cooking or waiting!
Yes, you heard right, this healthy oatmeal recipe requires no stove, oven, or whatever else you use to make oatmeal. Nope, nada! You don’t even have to prep these the night before because they aren’t overnight oats either! Don’t get me wrong I love my Bananas Foster Overnight Oats, and my Strawberries and Cream Overnight Oats, and my Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats but this recipe is for days when you really need breakfast to just be…. done.
Think of it like the usual cereal and milk, but with oatmeal instead of cereal which means a more wholesome meal! Top it with honey, fresh fruit and you have a complete breakfast.
Since the summer heat is on full blast, this means everything starts to slow down … everything except for mornings. Somehow these remain business as usual at my house and more often than not, these don’t even make it into a bowl, they go straight inside a to-go cup and I bring them to work.
But these oats, they are my summertime superhero because this is one breakfast my kids don’t mind making themselves since it’s essentially the same as making a bowl of cereal but a whole lot better and it looks pretty with the fresh berries.
Sometimes, they sprinkle on shredded coconut + mini chocolate chips, sliced bananas + cinnamon, or blueberries and honey. Diced prunes + cinnamon is also one of my go-to’s.
Thankfully, along with the heat, summer also brings a bounty of fresh berries like strawberries and blueberries, which when paired with ice-cold milk, a drizzle of honey, and old-fashioned oats, is so refreshing!
Of course, you could use any variety of your favorite fruit like frozen berries, chopped apple with a dash of cinnamon, or sliced bananas.
I don’t know about you, but this could totally be a year-round deal for me!
