This healthy dish is a quick and easy breakfast or snack for busy days.
This make-ahead oats recipe is one of my favorites. My husband affectionately calls it “squirrel mix.”
I eat it for breakfast, lunch, or in between. My kids love it too, and I sometimes add a little brown sugar for them.
You can make this over the weekend and put it in the fridge. Then, all you need to do is scoop out a serving and heat it in the microwave for a flavorful and quick breakfast or snack made from high-fiber plant-based ingredients.
You can use any combination of fruit and nuts you like and have on hand. My last batch had raisins, dates, blueberries, apples, pecans, and almonds.
