Last Wednesday, I wrote about sprouted granola and on this Monday, I have to share my new found breakfast love: overnight oats. When I saw someone eating these overnight oats, during a yoga break this weekend they looked delicious. The best part is, you can mix it up in so many different ways.
The traditional recipe for Overnight Oats:
Makes 1 large serving.
½ cup rolled oats (not quick cooking)
½ cup plain Greek yogurt
2/3 cup milk -- **I use almond milk**
1 tablespoon chia seeds
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl or jar, cover with a lid or plastic wrap, and allow the mixture to sit in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, stir in the mix-ins of your choosing.
Variation #1 – Pumpkin Peanut Butter
½ cup pumpkin puree
2 tablespoons natural peanut butter
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Variation #2 – Strawberry Banana
2 to 2 ½ tablespoons strawberry jam
1 small banana, mashed
