SOOOO……Let’s talk breakfast……
I HATE MAKING BREAKFAST!!!!!!
Yes I know….I have a cooking blog, so that must mean I love cooking….right??? Well the truth is….I love cooking….cooking is my passion!
However, when I roll out of bed at 6 in the morning to go for a run….and when I get back home, the last thing I want to do is waste 10- 20 minutes making FREAKING breakfast!!!
One of the ways, I keep my sanity is by doing overnight oaks…..They have literally saved my breakfast game, because all I have to do in the morning, when I get in, is grab a spoon! Easy as Sunday morning!
What Makes this healthy!!!
The fiber in the oats and the healthy fats in the chia seed and peanut butter will keep you fuller for longer because fiber and fat slow down digestion (this is a good thing). The yogurt adds a creamy thickness that gives a slight tart twist to the sweet banana and the salty peanut butter combination. This is where your taste buds will thank you. Spend less than 5 minutes putting it together in a bowl, and voila you have a hearty, protein-rich breakfast waiting to make your mornings a little better…….
½ c old-fashioned oats (I like to use steel-cut oaks, but use whatever you fancy8)
¾ c Coconut milk
1 tbsp. chia seed
1 tbsp. all-natural creamy peanut butter
½ banana, diced
¼ c non-fat plain Greek yogurt
½ scoop protein powder*
Dash of cinnamon
Honey, raw and unfiltered
**We recommend a vanilla, banana or peanut butter flavored protein powder for this recipe. We used Athletic Greens grass-fed whey, vanilla flavor.
Add all ingredients together in a bowl (or mason jar). Mix until combined. Refrigerate overnight. Technically, you only need to 2.5 to 3 hours before it’s ready to eat, so feel free to make this recipe at any time of the day. Drizzle with honey, if desired.
