The Perfect Healthy On-The-Go Breakfast: PB and “J” Overnight Oats

Hi Everyone!

Have you ever had a morning where you just don’t have enough time? You’re rushing out the door, the bus is driving by your driveway, and you hardly have time to think about breakfast. If you’re like me, this probably happens more often than not. So, I came up with the best recipe I could  make for overnight oats. You’re probably wondering what overnight oats are, and they are exactly what their name is. Basically, overnight oats is oatmeal made overnight in the refrigerator while you are sleeping, and is a creamier version of traditional oatmeal. This oatmeal will keep you full until lunchtime, and is certainly one of the most delicious breakfasts you can make. So, without further ado, here is the recipe!

 

Peanut Butter and “Jelly” Overnight Oats      Serves Two

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup organic whole grain oats
  • 1/2 cup whole milk plain (unsweetened) greek yogurt
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup organic milk (almond, soy, or regular is fine)
  • 4 tbs. (1/4 cup) organic peanut butter
  • 4 tbs. pure (local if possible) maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup frozen or fresh organic strawberries and/or raspberries
  • 4 tbs. organic raw chia seeds

Steps:

First, divide your chia seeds and oats evenly among two mason jars or airtight containers. Add 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt to each jar and divide the milk evenly. Mix together to combine. Then, add in 2 tbs. peanut butter to each jar, and stir until there is a thick consistency. Add in two tbs. pure maple syrup to each jar and refrigerate for at least 4-6 hours, or overnight. The next morning, add in strawberries and/or raspberries, and enjoy! Optionally, use almond or sunflower seed butter instead of peanut butter.
