Warm Breakfasts

As soon as it gets cooler out, our family likes to eat a warm breakfast, but eating oatmeal every day can get tiring. These breakfasts are nutritious and take very little preparation, a must for a big family.

Baked Oatmeal
This is a different spin on everyday oatmeal that my kids really like. You can also add raisins, nuts or other dried fruits if you like...

2/3 cup oil
2/3 cup honey, agave or maple syrup
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups oats
1 1/3 cups plain yogurt

Preheat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Pour into a greased 13x9 inch pan and spread out evenly. Bake for 30 minutes. Cut into squares and eat warm.

Overnight Millet
I love waking up and being able to serve breakfast without having to do any work! Add maple syrup, some butter or coconut oil, and some diced apples, raisins and cinnamon. This serves about 5 or 6. To make more, increase millet to 2 cups and use 8 cups of water...

1 1/2 cups millet, rinsed
6 cups water

The night before, lightly grease a crock pot (I use coconut oil). Place millet and water inside pot. Cook on low overnight.
