My family loves breakfast and we consider it as the major meal of the day – the meal that propels us throughout the day. As you can imagine it’s not just a piece of bread and coffee. Having grown up in an Asian household, I am used to breakfast with rice, eggs and some meat – yes, quite heavy. While I continue to serve hot and cooked breakfast to my family, I am glad that for busy, crazy days I have a delicious and healthy alternative that requires barely 5 minutes of prep and best of all may be done the night before!!!

Hurrah for Overnight Oatmeal!!! I have done this previously and my family have enjoyed this a few times already but I actually never wrote a post about it despite it being so popular! But, it’s better late than never, right? Perhaps because it got eaten so quick so there was never much of a chance to photograph the food! 🙂 So yesterday, I woke up earlier and yay – I finally got a photo of it!

What I love about this recipe is not just the ease but it’s versatility. You can use whatever fruits are in season, your favorite sweetener and also dairy-free alternatives. You can even add some of your favorite nut butter in the mix, too! So, the possibilities are endless! If you don’t fancy layering, simply mix the fruits with the oatmeal in the bowl the next day. Either way, I am sure you will enjoy this and you can be happy you are feeding your family something delicious and healthy, too!! 🙂
