If you have been reading this blog for a while, it is clear to state that I am no culinary genius. I do like to make things ahead of time so that I can have something to feed my family of two while I'm running like a chicken with my head cut off throughout the week. This last week I read on Oh She Glows about how making overnight oats ahead of time in a large batch is not only easy, but tastes better. I went with it, and although it ain't pretty, it was awesome.
Brace yourselves for this picture. This item was clearly for me only as my husband would not even look at it without making a face. More for me.
- 1 heaping cup of oats
- 1.5 cups of milk of your choice
- 4 scoops of protein powder of choice (I used chocolate hemp protein)
- 2 Tbsp chia seeds
- 1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa
- Optional: nut butter (I didn't use any), ground flax, cinnamon, sweetener, or anything else you put in your overnight oats.
I made myself a breakfast sundae and really enjoyed it
Overnight oats, sliced banana, plain yogurt, and almond butter.
Question: Do you have any favorite time saving breakfast ideas for me? I would love to hear them!
