Overnight Oats - my new fav breakfast (besides cookies of course!)
Monday, July 04, 2011
1/3 cup old fashioned rolled oats
2/3 cup milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
2 tsp flax or chia seeds (ground)
1 small banana (mushed)
1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
Combine all ingredients, cover, and put in fridge overnight. In the morning, stir then eat :)
When I took it out of the fridge this morning I added 2 tbsp peanut butter. It's meant to be eaten cold, but I popped it in the microwave for 30 seconds just to get the chill off. It was really yummy and kept me full for about 5 hours, which is amazing! I'm usually hungry every 2-3 hours!
Tomorrow I may throw in some nuts, or chocolate chips. The possibilities are endless!
How do you like your oatmeal?
