Overnight Breakfast: Peanut Butter Bulgur Cereal

Try this no-fuss overnight breakfast cereal for a fast weekday morning meal! It “cooks” in the refrigerator overnight and yields a warm and filling breakfast in the morning! Mix it up with different toppings to add your own twist. 


1 cup uncooked bulgur
1 1/2 cups 1% milk
1 Tbsp peanut butter
Topping Suggestion: 1/2 cup berries, a dollop of plain or vanilla greek yogurt, and 2 tsp chopped nuts

1. Combine uncooked bulgur and milk in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Fluff in the morning.
2. Place 3/4 cup soaked grains in a small microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 1 minute.
3. Stir in peanut butter and top with toppings as desired. (also great with apples or bananas instead of berries!)

One serving (with toppings as suggested above): 327 calories, 12.8 g total fat, 15 g protein, 34 g carbohydrate, 12 g fiber
