Overnight Oats

You can watch me make overnight oats HERE and HERE. I love to make oats in mason jars, so I have individual servings ready to eat on the go. But you can also make a large batch in a covered bowl to scoop up and add to a yogurt parfait.

The Basic Recipe: Combine equal amounts of oatmeal and your favorite milk. 1/2 cup of each makes a single serving. Combine the oats and milk, then add in other tasty treats.

Add-In Ideas:

  • fresh fruit

  • dried fruit

  • nuts

  • yogurt

  • chia seeds

  • canned pumpkin

  • nut butter

  • maple syrup

  • cinnamon

  • cocoa powder

Quiche Muffins

While I love these as a healthy, on-the-go breakfast, they also make a delicious protein-filled snack.

The Basic Recipe: For 6 muffins, finely chop 1/2-3/4 cup veggies and divide into 6 well-greased muffin tin wells. In a bowl combine 5 eggs, 1 1/2 TBSP flour, 1/4 tsp baking powder, a small clove of garlic minced, and a little salt and pepper. Divide the egg mixture between the 6 muffin tin wells. Bake at 350 for about 22 minutes. This recipe can easily be doubled.

Veggie and Other Add-In Ideas:

  • onion

  • bell pepper

  • spicy peppers

  • broccoli

  • cauliflower

  • sauteed mushrooms (sauté first to remove water from the mushrooms)

  • sundried tomatoes

  • fresh herbs

  • garlic powder

  • cheese

(avoid watery veggies like tomatoes and zucchini, unless you cook them first)

Veggie Scramble

This is a very veggie-forward breakfast. If you trying to increase your veggie intake, give this one a try.

The Basic Recipe: For each serving, start with 1+ cup of veggies and 1-2 eggs. Sauté the veggies until tender, add in a little salt and pepper, then break the egg into veggies and stir around until eggs are done to your liking. Serve with toast.

  • spinach

  • zucchini

  • mushrooms

  • garlic

  • spicy pepper

  • fresh herbs

Yogurt Parfait

This one is so yummy, it could substitute as dessert! A parfait looks beautiful layered into a tall, clear glass; but tastes equally as good when ingredients are just plopped into a bowl. Learn to make your own yogurt HERE.

The Basic Recipe: All you need is yogurt and something to layer in. You can make this as simple or as complicated as you want.

Layer Ideas:

  • cooked (or overnight) oatmeal

  • mixed berries

  • chopped apples or other fruit

  • apple sauce

  • cinnamon

  • elderberry syrup

  • granola

  • pie filling

  • lemon curd

  • crushed cookies
