If you’re like me, you had wayyy too much chocolate yesterday. Those Reester Bunnies get me every time.
Which is why it was extra important to start today with a well-balanced, healthy meal. I’m sure I’m not alone on this (or I am alone and trying to make myself feel better).
Anyway, I’m sure you’ve seen overnight oats all over the blogosphere, but I’ll just add to it because if you haven’t seen or tried the recipe, you really should.
I tried making these a long time ago and didn’t like them, but that’s just because I was doing it all wrong. I forgot the chia seeds and didn’t add peanut butter. Two major mistakes!
So, if you’ve tried making them and didn’t like them, make sure you add the chia seeds. It’s vital. Trust me, I was there, but I tried again and now I’m completely obsessed. I eat them about 4 times a week for breakfast now.
I adapted this recipe slightly from Kath Eats (love her) and she has so many variations. So, if you want something other than the regular, check her out!
P.S. Did you guys get anyone good for April Fool’s Day?
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- ⅓ cup rolled oats
- ½ cup milk
- ⅓ cup plain yogurt
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon honey
- Splash of milk
- The night before you want to eat the oats, mix together the first 4 ingredients in a bowl, jar, or cup. Mix well and let sit overnight in the refrigerator.
- The next morning, take out the oats and microwave them for just about 10 seconds.
- Add the peanut butter, honey, and milk and stir. Devour!
