If you’re like me… Breakfast is one of the hardest meals to make. I am not a big egg eater… and neither are my kids, although my husband will enjoy one now and again. I find it hard to come up with some recipe ideas for something quick and easy. Especially when we’re always running out the door first thing in the morning most days.
So what’s a mom to do when you work full-time and you need to have a healthy quick breakfast that you can grab and go with? Breakfast sandwiches, breakfast burritos and many of these other types of quick breakfasts are good too, but I just found a quick and easy recipe that turned out to be very yummy and simple to make when you have a busy schedule.
Only three ingredients:
- 2 to 2 1/2 cups of rolled oats (I found 2 1/2 cups worked out better)
- Half a cup of honey or half a cup of maple syrup (your choice and I preferred to only use 1/4 of a cup)
- One cup of peanut butter (natural is better for less sugar)
- Mix all three ingredients together, place a piece of wax paper in a baking dish, add your mixture to the dish and pressed down firmly to even out the mixture in the dish. Put it in the refrigerator for several hours or even overnight, and then enjoy.
Let me know if you have any other ideas for a quick and easy breakfast. Send a comment below with your recipe.
