No-cook oatmeal? Yes! Check out this delicious way to eat a filling breakfast with fresh fruit.
Oatmeal is one of those easy dishes you can quickly make and customize to your taste. No wonder it’s favorite for breakfast and today I’m sharing a simple and refreshing way to enjoy it with this no-cook oatmeal.
Can You Eat Raw Oats?
While raw old-fashioned, and quick oats are safe to eat, they taste much better with milk and a drizzle of maple syrup or honey. Nutritionally, there is no difference between eating cooked or raw oats, it all comes down to your preference.
Some people like warm oatmeal with berries, others prefer overnight oats or breakfasts like this: plain oats with berries and cold milk. It’s a hearty and refreshing switch from regular cooked oatmeal that holds you over for hours.
Making Raw Oatmeal with Fruit
This oatmeal practically makes itself! No stove or oven required, only a bowl, some oats, and your choice of milk and toppings. Here’s how to make it:
- Scoop about ¾ cup of oats into a bowl, add ½ cup berries, and cover with ½ cup milk. Allow the oats soak up the milk for a minute or two.
- Top the with a drizzle of maple syrup or honey, if desired.
We all know the saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? Well, I never put a lot of stock into that phrase until I became a mother.
Feeding my kids a filling, wholesome breakfast makes all the difference in how they start their day. It needs to be filling and have enough protein to keep them from getting hungry halfway through the morning.
Packing fresh lunches is also no longer an issue since we began using the MOMables menus, but getting my boys to eat breakfast when we are in a hurry can be challenging. My 3 boys have differing tastes, so it’s not always easy to make everyone happy.
Having a variety of choices on hand seems to keep the kids a little more interested in breakfast and our mornings complaint-free.
