Happy Friday! I’m linking up again this week with Annemarie from The Fit Foodie Mama, Cassandra from Powered by Bling, Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl, Farrah from Fairyburger and Montana from Pretty Lil Mudder to bring you healthy recipes. This week’s theme is “Breakfast Remakes”. Please be sure to check out their recipes and feel free to add yours as well.
A few years ago, I discovered the deliciousness of yogurt and granola for breakfast. Unfortunately my body doesn’t handle sugar well and my granola and yogurt flavors of choice were pretty high in sugar and low in protein. After reading about Overnight Oats on Peanut Butter Fingers, one of my favorite blogs, I decided to give it a try. It’s no secret that now Overnight Oats is my favorite healthy breakfast. I love that it’s high in protein and fiber. It’s also quick, filling and my “go-to” pre-race breakfast.
1/2 cup old fashioned oats (not cooked)
1 Tbsp chia seeds
6 oz container of flavored Greek yogurt (I like Chobani)
3/4 cup almond milk (or your favorite type of milk)
nut butter, fruit, shredded coconut (optional toppings)
1. Combine oats and chia seeds in a bowl or small tupperware container
2. Stir in Greek yogurt and almond milk (I use the empty yogurt container to measure out the almond milk)
3. Cover and refrigerate overnight
4. When ready to eat, top with desired toppings
Overnight Oats are so versatile! Kath Eats Real Food has an awesome variety of Overnight Oats ideas.
