Simple Healthy EASY Family breakfast you can make the night before KID MUESLI and the kitchen stays cool in the summer!
My children get in breakfast eating ruts.
The whole winter they had the same two items:
Toast with butter (blaise)
Cinnamon brown sugar oatmeal (finn)
It got old.
SO. I started searching for simple and healthy breakfast ideas and thought about Muesli!
There are SO many recipes and ideas on the web but here is what we do:
rolled oats (organic if you can)
liquid- (milk/juice/filtered water) anything here- we like whole milk.
Add Ins (think nuts/honey/dried fruit/fresh fruit/yogurt)
in a small bowl add some rolled oats (not quick kind)
top with liquid
let sit overnight in the fridge (bowls with lids are great)
top with yummy ingredients
This is so simple.
The great thing is the kids can prep it the night before and all you need to do is toss on the toppings and you are ready to eat.
It is the easiest ever!
AND my kids LOVE it.
AND my kitchen stays cool.
AND it's healthy.
AND it's kinda fun to create.
(and my kids want it for a snack even!)
here are some fun ideas for add in ingredients:
Dried fruit Chips
Fresh or frozen fruit
Karob or dark chocolate chips (go easy)
Flaxseeds or flax meal
How about you?
