I will be the first to say I am not upset with the weather we have been having these past 2 weeks. Most days have been sunny and above 55 degrees here in NY, and we had a more than mild winter...double win!
With warm weather brings more options/ideas for recipes. I have jumped on the "Overnight Oats" bandwagon and am thrilled to report I had success on my very first try!
What are overnight oats you ask?
Oats with the fixings of your choosing, in the fridge overnight...no cooking, AT ALL. Could not be an easier, more satisfying breakfast! I liked these so much I am thinking of making my own O.O series, with different flavors.. to start I give you the:
Peanut Butter Chocolate Overnight Oats
Makes 1 BIG serving
Prep time:5 minutes
Total Time: 2-8 hours
1/2 cup oats (I used quick oats because that is all we have, and it worked fine!)
1/2 cup vanilla or chocolate almond milk
1/4 cup Chobani plain non-fat greek yogurt
1 T flax seed
1 T chia seed
(both are optional, chia will make the oats expand)
1/2 T coco powder,unsweetened
2 T PB2
1 T truvia/stevia
Mix all ingredients together, cover then place in fridge. If you're making this the morning of leave it in the refridge for atleast 2 hours, or overnight if making the night before like I did.
all mixed and ready to chill
Can you see how the oats and chia expanded? It made me so happy, and to top my excitement off, it was DELICIOUS!
I added some sliced bananas to mine, you can add any kind of fruit you like or none at all.
If you make this send me pictures/leave comments I'd love to hear feedback!
