Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but many of us struggle to get enough of the most fueling nutrition in before we race out the door to start our day.

Here is a great, simple recipe to make on the weekend and have on-hand for breakfasts during the week.  I make a double batch on Sundays and then don’t have to worry about what’s for breakfast during the week for my household. You can adapt this base recipe to your liking, try adding blueberries or strawberries.
