The Sugar/Flour-Free Breakfast I Eat Every Single Day | Little Miss Fearless

A Delicious Sugar/Flour-Free Breakfast

You guys know how much I love my breakfast. I have hard time not sharing it every morning on my Instastories. I just think it’s the best thing ever.

I’ve had several questions about the yogurt I use, what kind of apples I prefer, etc., so I’m putting all the details in this post for easy reference…

The recipe:

  • Make one 1-oz packet of Quaker Original Instant Oatmeal. Follow cooking instructions on packet (add water, microwave, stir)
  • Put bowl of cooked oatmeal on scale (I use this CSE scale because it fits all my plates and bowls without covering up the numbers) and set ‘tare’ to zero
  • Add 8 oz Oikos Vanilla Greek Yogurt
  • Sprinkle cinnamon as desired
  • Stir yogurt, oatmeal and cinnamon together until well combined
  • Cut one honey crisp (my fav!) apple into cubes, add to bowl and stir
  • Microwave again for 1 minute so apples are warm
  • Enjoy!

It literally tastes like apple pie to me! I look forward to waking up every morning knowing I get to eat this. 😀

Apples

I get my honey crisp apples from Costco! Since I eat one every morning they go pretty fast and the large plastic tray from Costco comes with 14 apples.

Oatmeal

I buy the boxed 1 oz packets of Quaker Original Instant Oatmeal because it’s easier to make than measuring it out of a bag or barrel every morning. Be sure to get the original flavor since the others will have added sugars and artificial flavors.

Yogurt

Oikos Vanilla Greek Yogurt is available at just about any grocery store (unfortunately not Costco. I wish I could buy it in bulk). It comes in other flavors as well and has zero sugar or artificial sweeteners. It does have less than 1% of stevia leaf extract (a natural sweetener), but I don’t stress over it because it’s in such a small dose—4th on the ingredient list.

A few people have reached out and said they don’t like the aftertaste of the yogurt. I don’t taste an aftertaste at all! But I also don’t taste the protein powder in protein shakes and I’ve learned it has everything to do with your tastebuds adapting to whole, unprocessed foods.

If you’re just starting to cut out sugar and flour, give yourself at least two weeks to detox and start tasting things as they really are.

Make it Your Way

If you’re following the meal plan from my post about how I Gave Up Sugar and Flour, remember, you can always swap the apple for 6 oz of fruit, like berries.

When I first cut out sugar and flour, it was still summer and I ate my oatmeal + yogurt with blackberries, raspberries, blueberries and strawberries. In fall/winter, a warm bowl of apple pie just hits the spot for me in the morning. 🙂

I hope this post was helpful and that you enjoy this breakfast as much as I do!  Let me know in the comments if you’ve already tried it!

P.S. I’ll be sure to let you know if anything ever changes with my breakfast routine, but if you try this recipe and it’s just not your thing, check out the Clean Simple Eats meal plans for other sugar/flour-free breakfast ideas. Their protein shakes used to be my go-to breakfasts and will probably find their way back on my meal plan in the future.

    Funny I actually eat something similar to this in the morning! I’m weird and have never really cooked my oatmeal… I like it cold with milk most of the time but I’ve mixed it in yogurt a couple times as well. I’m going to have to try this! Also, I tasted that aftertaste with this yogurt at first but now I don’t taste it.. I think it’s just not the taste people are used to with more sugary yogurts.

    • That’s awesome. Do you eat protein shakes? I have a few recipes that use uncooked oats in the shake and it adds a yummy texture.

    This looks so yummy and super easy to make. I love Oikos yogurt and pretty bummed that it isn’t sold at Costco. They were the first brand of Greek yogurt I tried and have not looked back since. I also don’t taste any after taste on the yogurt nor do I taste any for protein shakes. I guess I have adapted to it since I eat yogurt and drink protein shakes daily! Happy Sunday!
