Forget jumping on the overnight oats bandwagon and make the leap to the not-so-basic bulgur bowl. Set aside 30 seconds for prep before bed and you’ll be rewarded with an extra 15 minutes to sleep in. All the work is done while you sleep, you just need to rise and dine. A big ol’ batch will last a few days in the fridge, so you’ll have breakfast all week long.
Start with the base. You can use anything from skim milk to buttermilk here. If you have a sweet tooth, try sweetened coconut or vanilla almond milk. Then, add your favorite mix-ins. We’ve offered a few suggestions but get creative or just throw in whatever is in the pantry. Congratulations, you’re officially a morning person.
For the Base:
Combine the bulgur and dairy in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, place in the fridge and forget about it. In the morning, fluff with a fork and stir in your favorite toppings.
For a Peanut Butter and Banana Bowl:
Thin out your peanut butter by mixing it with 1 to 2 tablespoons of warm water. Combine bulgur, yogurt, peanut butter, and banana in a bowl. Sprinkle with sea salt.
For a Mounds Candy Bar Breakfast Bowl:
Combine bulgur and yogurt in a bowl. Top with however much of the remaining ingredients you’d like.
For a Berries and Cream Bowl:
Combine bulgur and yogurt in a bowl and top to your taste.
