Who still hasn’t tried overnight oats?
This is my first time! I’ve been intrigued ever since I saw the idea on Pinterest last year, but I never got around to trying it myself. This recipe is perfect for people who love breakfast, but don’t have time to cook it in the morning. I am that person! I personally cannot function in the morning until I have something in my stomach, and instead of stopping somewhere and picking up greasy breakfast tacos, I want to eat something that’s nutritious and filling. Overnight oats can be mixed with all sorts of flavors, but the main ingredients are what makes this recipe so good for you! It’s got grains for energy, protein found in the almond milk and the greek yogurt, and flaxseed thats high in fiber. Most recipes called for chia seeds, but I prefer ground flaxseed because you can’t even tell it’s there!
I wanted the first oats that I made to be easy and delicious, so I brought in my two favorite ingredients on this big green earth: peanut butter and chocolate. I threw a banana in there because it’s a sneaky way to get a serving of fruit in the morning! This recipe is so good, ya’ll. Here’s how to make it!
- 1 Banana, mashed
- 1 cup Rolled Oats
- 1/4 cup Ground Flaxseed
- 1 Tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- 1/3 cup Honey (or more if you like it sweeter!)
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 Tbsp PB2
- 2 Tbsp Greek Yogurt
- 1 cup Almond Milk
- 1/2 Banana, sliced for topping!
- Mash the banana until no longer chunky.
- Add all of the ingredients except the sliced banana to a mixing bowl and blend until everything is completely combined.
- Pour the oats into two 8 – 12 oz mason jars, or any container that you can seal tightly.
- Refrigerate for at least three hours, or of course, overnight!
