  • 1/4 c plain yogurt
  • 1/2 c skim milk
  • 1 tbs flax seed meal
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 banana sliced
  • 1/2 tbs natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 c berries of choice


  • Combine oats, yogurt, milk, flax and pinch of salt in a glass jar and stir well.
  • Seal jar and refrigerate overnight.
  • In the morning, stir in cinnamon, banana slices, peanut butter and berries.


Steel cuts will have a nice chew to them but if you prefer to cook them further, add 1/4 c extra milk and microwave for 90 seconds.
