One day my co-worker walks in with a mason jar with what looked like lumpy goo. As I asked he informed me it was Overnight oats. The other day I had a flash back of this conversation and went to my handy dandy Pinterest and picked three recipes to try. I made my list and headed to the super market (which I hate but I was determined and cheap.)
The first receipt I tried was Coco and Peanut Butter Overnight Oats
1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup unsweetened milk of choice
1 tablespoon chia seeds or flax seed
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
0-2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
My first try I used
Unsweetened Almond Milk
1 tablespoon honey
I tolerated it. I did not love it. It was actually super biter. I used original coco and also just one table spoon of honey. Next time I will use either 2 tablespoons of honey or maple syrup. But it did fill me up for much longer than scrambled eggs and I felt so adult that I was able to actually follow through!
Tomorrow will be my Apple Sauce cinnamon experience!
