I’m a huge fan of anything that saves time in the kitchen, especially early in the morning (like this make-ahead breakfast casserole).

As an added bonus, this easy breakfast is also healthy (it’s sugar-free!), and it’s a Trim Healthy Mama E meal.

The delicious combination of yogurt, berries, chia seeds, and oats makes this a great healthy breakfast or snack idea.

  1. I don’t do rolled oats anymore, but sometimes I will do steel cut oats. (Many people don’t know that rolled oats contain other ingredients and aren’t as healthy as steel cut oats, which are simply oats cut with steel blades, nothing else is added)
    [From Foodnetwork .com:To make rolled oats, the groats are steamed and flattened between heavy rollers.
    After rolled oats are steamed and flattened, they’re dried in a kiln TO ADD FLAVOR and to deactivate a naturally occurring enzyme in the oat that can break down fats into fatty acids (the fats can cause the oats to taste rancid).]
    But steel cut oats need to be soaked first. That would add another step to this, but not so difficult. Just soak your steel cut oats overnight, then add as directed here.

  2. Saving time is always a plus, but then there is always that tasting good too. This recipe looks like it fills both wants. Thank you for sharing at Inspire Me Monday link party.

    1. Thanks for hosting, Amber! I’ve never tried it with other yogurts, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work! I’m guessing it would work fine to substitute. If you try it, let me know how it turns out!
