Mother Thyme, I love you. I don’t know you but I love you for inspiring me to finally try my hand at overnight oatmeal. Our kitchen smelled delicious in the morning and I can only imagine how incredible this trick is for busy parents trying to get an entire family out the door without succumbing to Pop Tarts. While it’s just Mike and me, my love affair with the snooze button can make having a wholesome breakfast tricky some days.
If you are an oatmeal purist who is concerned about the soggy factor, don’t be. Perhaps you think this recipe may be too sweet? Trust me, it’s not. I chose a quick reheat method of one minute and 15 seconds in the microwave, then topped with fresh blueberries and a splash of skim milk. I wasn’t hungry until lunchtime! One other note, I also added ground flaxseed to the ingredients list.
Recipe by Mother Thyme. Thank me (well, mainly her) tomorrow morning.
