I had one of my CLIENTS (so crazy!!!!) as about my Overnight Oats and I thought it was best to write a blog post because there is SO much to share with oats! When I make them I generally prep them for the week. The basis of my Overnight Oats are:
1/2 Cup Old Fashioned Oats
2 T Chia Seeds &
1/2 Almond Milk (might need a little more)
Toppings/Flavors: Peanut Butter, Fruit (banana, apple, blueberries, strawberries), greek yogurt, Unsweetened Coconut, Almonds, Pecans, Honey, Quest Bars broken into chunks.
I put out 4 or 5 Jars and I add 1/3-1/2 Cup of Old Fashioned Oats to each jar. Add toppings of choosing into each jar. My “go-to” is 1 Heaping T of Peanut Butter, 2 T of Unsweetened Coconut & a Handful of Almonds. After I add in all my ingredients of choice I add my milk, shake, shake, shake & pop it in the refrigerator. Let it sit overnight. This will allow for the Chia Seeds to expand.
I pop mine in the microwave for 30 seconds to a minute.
I will be adding some yummy overnight oat recipes this week!
