I'm always on the look out for an easy but protein packed breakfast that can keep me full for hours. A few weeks ago, a Twitter friend introduced me to her version of Overnight Oats and they are amazing!
The best part is you can make a batch on Sunday for most of the week and feel virtuous as you eat your healthy, protein-packed breakfast! Also, you don't really have a good Lifestyle blog until you share an Overnight Oats recipe!
I made a short video of the process of making overnight oats because I love the simplicity of it.
I like to sub the chai seeds for the Super Seed and Ancient Grain Blend Trader Joe's and have found that while whole rolled oats are delicious, the Purely Elizabeth Ancient Grain Muesli is also delicious.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 1-2 minutes
Ingredients (1 jar of Oats)
- 1/4 cup oats
- 2 Tablespoons PB2 or Jif Peanut Powder
- pinch of cinnamon
- pinch of sea salt
- 2 teaspoons chia seeds
- 1/2 cup greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup milk (almond, cow or rice work well)
- 1 Tablespoon jam
Layer ingredients into a nice sized jar and stir before leaving in the fridge overnight. You can make up these up to three days before you eat them.
You can eat these cold or hot. Just pop them in the microwave for a minute or two to consume warm.
