Good morning, breakfast enthusiasts! Remember last week when I brought up overnight oats and how they were taking my weekday breakfast game to the next level? Remember when I said “breakfast game”? Let’s ignore that. However, I’ve modified the recipe I’ve been using (the original was calling for WAY too much oats and while I do get hungry in the morning, I’m not looking to eat myself into a coma before 8 am). That being said, here is the overnight oats recipe I’ve been whipping up each night and loving for this past week!
- 1/2 cup of oats.
- 1/2 cup of coconut milk
- 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (I somehow managed to purchase a protein powder made specifically for women. Stop trying to gender my foods, Kroger!)
- 1 tablespoon of chia Seeds
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
- 4 frozen strawberries
- Mix dry ingredients into a mason jar or bowl (anything that you can cover and keep refrigerated overnight, I just chose a mason jar because it’s cute and I’ve been watching a lot of Fixer Upper), and then add coconut milk. Top with strawberries and place in fridge overnight. In the morning, empty mix into a bowl and peanut butter. Personally, I’ll pop mine into the microwave for about a minute and thirty seconds, but if you want to eat it cold, well uh, go for it. For a little extra, add a sprinkle of cacao bits or chocolate chips. Chocolate for breakfast is always a good idea.
Let me know if you try this out! I’ll be experimenting with different ingredients next week, so if that’s a success I’ll be sure to share! If it’s a failure, don’t worry I’ll still tell you about it.
