Overnight Oats – two ways, peanut butter oats & chocolate brownie oats

17 Mar

Does anyone else hate breakfast time?

My family seem to think that I moonlight as a short order cook & no one can ever agree on what we should all eat.

That was, until we started doing overnight oats.

These are perfect for a family breakfast.They are ready to eat straight from the refrigerator, they are healthy & sustaining & best of all you can easily make 100’s of variations so you can please every member of the family.

We make them with a wide variety of fruits & flavours but these two recipes are our family favourites. Who can go past chocolate for breakfast – its a kids dream come true!!

And as for the peanut butter oats, with the addition of chia seeds they are creamy, sweet & salty goodness in a jar – they also make a decadent post work out snack.

Make breakfast the night before & de-crazy your mornings, ok if you have rugrats…..I can’t promise your mornings won’t be crazy but at least breakfast will be taken care of 🙂

 

 

peanut butter oats

Peanut Butter Overnight Oats a’la Mama Going Natural

  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds
  • 2 Tablespoons Peanut Butter – I use crunchy because I like the chunks of nuts
  • 1 Tablespoon Maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • Banana to add on top before eating (optional)

Mix all liquids in a bowl, add the oats & chia seeds & immerse them well in the liquid

Spoon into your jars & screw on the lids tightly or cover with cling wrap & leave in the refrigerator overnight. Its as easy as that.

These oats will be ready for a super yummy breakfast & will keep for two days in the refrigerator.
