This breakfast takes a bit of planning, but it’s great to make on a Sunday night! You’ll have breakfast ready for the week. Just pop the oatmeal in the microwave and then add some jam! Breakfast in less than two minutes. It just takes a little time in the beginning (which is why I like to make it the night before!).
I like steel cut oats because I actually feel full after eating a bowl. I don’t know about you, but I always seem to get hungry after 5 minutes of finishing instant oatmeal. I used to take oatmeal packets to work, but then ended up eating a lot more snacks in between breakfast and lunch. Once I switched to steel cut oats, I cut waaaaay back on my morning snacking.
Since I added no sweetener to the oatmeal, I like to use a sweeter jam (such as the blueberry mix in these pictures or a strawberry). The cinnamon is optional, but I think it gives the oatmeal a nice full flavor and adds a bit of richness to the jam.
