Over Night Oats Recipe
Waking Up To OverNight Oats
We all know how much of a pain in the ass it is to wake up and feed your kids some other than eggs and fruit. For those of us that are not morning people it is difficult to prepare food while being tired and hearing the sounds of your children screaming for food at 6:54am.
The resolution…Overnight Oats. Nothing is easier and enjoyable then these bad boys. 15 minutes to prep at night, wake up in the morning and throw down on the kids plate and BAM!..Father of the Morning!
Here are some health benefits of choosing oats:
- Level: Super Easy
- Total Time: 5 hrs
- Prep: 5 min
- Inactive: 5 hrs
- Yield: 1 serving
1/3 to 1/2 cup liquid such as dairy milk, almond, cashew or coconut milk
1/3 to 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/3 to 1/2 cup yogurt, optional
1 teaspoon chia seeds, optional but highly recommended
1/2 banana, mashed, optional
Serving suggestions: fruit (fresh or dried), nuts, nut butter, seeds, protein powder, granola, coconut, spices, citrus zest and vanilla extract
- Add the desired amounts of milk, oats, yogurt, chia seeds and banana to a jar or container and give them a good stir. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 5 hours.
- In the morning, add additional liquid if you’d like. Once you achieve the desired consistency, top with fruit, nuts, nut butter, seeds, protein powder, granola, coconut, spices, zest or vanilla extract.
The mixture will keep for up to 2 days. If you don’t add the banana, up to 4 days. However, once you are experienced, you’ll have no problem whipping up another batch midweek if needed!
And just like that, your kid is happy healthy and ready to run around at full speed all day! Do with this as you may.
