This hearty, prep-ahead breakfast comes together in a snap the night before, and cooks up in the morning in just half an hour. It sets you up for several days of easy, healthy morning meals: Simply reheat a piece in the microwave for about a minute and top with fruit. Grated apple in the oat mixture adds a little crunchy texture and lots of sweetness, replacing much of the added sugar you might otherwise expect. Though we call for berries as the topping, you can use any fruit you have on hand—try sliced bananas, orange segments, pomegranate seeds, or diced pears.
