September is Better Breakfast Month and to celebrate, we share all sorts of breakfast recipes for you to enjoy. There’s been a lot of talk lately about breakfast, and if it is still the most important meal of the day. The recent study I saw leads me to believe that more research is necessary.
To keep up with the times, I pack my breakfast every day and take a break at about 11am and eat at that time.
In one of the more comprehensive studies to date, it’s recently been proven that eggs (yolks) are not the best choice for breakfast. In this recent study, it is believed that egg yolks raise cholesterol and increase chances for heart disease. So we’ll limit eggs to one per serving, if-at-all for now. Until the next study.
Today we share oatmeal recipes, from overnight oats that can be served cold or hot, to traditional warm oatmeal dishes that your grandmother made. We’re also exploring more contemporary porridge and savory grain recipes that have been designed as perfect post-workout food.
We also share some fantastic smoothies in case you’re searching for a smaller but satisfying meal.
As always, with each of these recipes, we encourage you to play with your food.
With Simple Overnight Oats, we mix all of the ingredients for a hearty breakfast the night before to save time in the morning-just grab and go, right from your fridge. Perfect for warmer weather. Prefer warm oats? Just heat them up when you are ready!
Chock full of blueberries, cashews, and Honey, this oatmeal is filled with vitamins and minerals and also full of flavor. This recipe is a great idea for the summer time. You don’t need to turn on your stovetop to cook the oats, so your kitchen will stay nice and cool. Refrigerating the oats overnight blends the flavors. Come morning you will have a sweet and nutritious treat.
Picture these Overnight Peanut Butter Oats pleasing you as much as best-selling ice cream without the guilt. Then imagine adding chocolate and bananas. It doesn’t get much better than that. Knowing that in the end, it’s all good for you too doesn’t hurt.
The flavor in this Chocolate Honey Overnight Oats is amazing. You might find yourself looking forward to getting up for another bowl tomorrow!
Peaches at the breakfast table are a great idea. These beautiful crisp, sometimes furry fruits are very sweet but offer a low glycemic index and reduce the need for added sugar.
When the weather gets colder, I crave a warm and hearty breakfast. Hot Oatmeal is very satisfying and it’s certainly not difficult to make. I always make enough for my husband and I and if there are any leftovers, I store them in a mason jar to enjoy the next morning.
To be honest, I wasn’t always a fan of oatmeal. This changed by the time I was an adult, and now I can’t get enough of the stuff! I wouldn’t exactly call this recipe “oatmeal,” since it’s a blend of several grains. That’s why we call this Power Porridge. It’s packed with so many heart-healthy ingredients, and it keeps you full all morning until lunch.
No-Bake Honey Peanut Butter Granola Bars only get better when drizzled a little chocolate over the top! Granola recipes have been around forever, but serving up raw granola in bar form is something that can make it even more appealing. We added some super foods to these No-Bake Honey Peanut Butter Granola Bars, like pumpkin seeds, cacao nibs, and even dried berries.
Eastern Shore Honey Nut Granola is relatively easy to make and keeps for weeks in an airtight container.
