Overnight Oats

photo-2Overnight Oats

I take *no* credit for this idea, but I’ve been eating it for breakfast, and it keeps me full all morning! Make it now.

The first is the night before, and the second is what it looks like in the morning.

What I put into it:

1/2 cup dry oats (I use quick oats)
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp flax seed
1 tbsp natural peanut butter
cinnamon
1 banana

According to My Fitness Pal (an inexact science to be sure)- 502 calories, 20.7 g fat, 74.7 grams carbs, 18.3 g fiber, 15.7 g protein

Apparently chia and flax seeds are the new amazing thing, so I’ll go for it until someone tells me otherwise (soon enough, I’m sure). Read more about them here.

    • The texture is a little different. They are less fluffy, but they do not taste raw. The addition of the chia seeds makes it taste a little more like regular cold oatmeal. It’s a pretty low commitment thing to try and make. You should go for it!
