Overnight Oats

Have you discovered this yet?  I'm a little late to the overnight oats party, but man oh man what a tasty, easy breakfast.

I like the texture of overnight oats better than oatmeal prepared traditionally.  It's almost like an al dente version of oatmeal. 

I usually add bananas, but I was out when I took this picture

 I've been fixated on this particular concoction lately that's packed with flavor and lots of protein.  It's a recipe for peanut butter overnight oats, and it's fabulous.

It's really versatile, too.  You can easily tweak the recipe by adding whatever floats your boat.  Almond butter instead of peanut butter, walnuts instead of almonds, blueberries instead of banana.  Whatever you like!

All I know is I've been eating it weekly since I discovered it!  The above recipe is enough for 1 serving, and you can eat it cold right from the fridge or pop it in the microwave if you prefer it warm.  (which is also delicious) Cold in the summer is perfect and refreshing.  Also, the chia seeds really bulk it up, so I'm usually full until well after lunch.

How bout a little overnight oats experimentation? It's a tasty, healthy little breakfast!

Ta-ta for now.
