Overnight Oats is Your Key to Easy Mornings

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so you owe it to yourself to prepare something that is both satisfying and healthy. Overnight oats are a great breakfast option – they are perfect for people on the run, and the best part is you can double, triple, or quadruple this recipe so you can be set for the week! Here’s our go-to overnight oats recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of rolled oats (do not use quick cook because they will get soggy overnight)
  • 1/2 cup of the milk of your choice
  • 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt or the dairy-free yogurt of your choice
  • 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of honey, agave nectar, or another sweetener
  • 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon of jam
  • 1 tablespoon of peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup of diced strawberries or raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons of crushed peanuts

Instructions:

  1. First, get a glass jar or container that will hold all the ingredients, but that will also give you some room to mix.
  2. Then, put in the oats, milk, yogurt, and chia seeds. Mix well and leave in the fridge for at least 2 hours. Then, you can either choose to leave it overnight or add in your toppings right away.
  3. If you do want to do the toppings the night before to make life easier, just add the jam in one area, the peanut butter in another, the fruit all over, and sprinkle the peanuts on as well.
  4. Enjoy!

🥜PB AND J BAKED OATS🥜 My mood has been awful lately…not sure if it’s because of the weather, lack of sleep, maybe a combo of both?? This morning, I decided it was gonna be a good frickin day and so far it has been! I definitely find comforting in eating whenever I’m sad or just feeling off, so I wanted to make something I knew I would enjoy. Usually it’s a new recipe, sometimes it’s an old favorite, but it’s been a while since I’ve made one of my favorite brekkie’s, and I’ve seen a lot of other yummy oat recipes today😋 Today, I tried this out with my favorite homemade strawberry chia jam, and it hit the spot. Kinda went a lil crazy on the pb drizzle, but I promise there’s jam under there 😉 It was the perfect start to my morning☺️ No Toast Tuesday for me, but save me a bite of yours bc I’m sure it’s delicious!!🤩 . . . dEATS: 1/2 cup of @quaker old fashioned oats + 1/2 cup of @ripplefoods unsweetened vanilla pea milk + 1 scoop of @furtherfood collagen (LEARNINGFROMBALANCE10 saves you money!) + 1/2 mashed banana + 1 T of @pb2foods + 1/2 t of baking powder + 1/2 t of pure vanilla extract + a dash of cinnamon + 1 serving of my homemade strawberry chia jam (or choose your favorite jam/jelly) // Mix everything but the jam in an oven safe dish. Drop lil dollops on top and swirl it gently with a butter knife. Add your banana, then bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Once done, let it cool, add @crazyrichardspb, cinnamon, and enjoy 🌟 MACROS (NO JAM OR TOPPINGS): ~299 calories: 45 C 6 F 19 P
