Nothing beats slowly waking up to a brand new day after a night of sound sleep. I woke up at 6:15am this morning but lounged in bed until around 7am.
It was delicious.
And so was breakfast.
I followed Kath’s Overnight Oats recipe to a T for this morning’s breakfast, except I added an additional 1/3 cup of milk in the morning to thin everything out. I prefer my oats on the thinner vs. thicker side; this was perfect.
1/3 cup uncooked oatmeal
1/3 cup yogurt (used low fat, plain Stoneyfield)
1/3 cup milk (used unsweetened soy)
1/2 Tbsp. chia seeds
1/2 banana, sliced thin
dash of cinnamon
dash of salt
Stir together all ingredients and pop in the fridge overnight. Eat as a chilled breakfast the following morning and top as desired.
Add a little extra milk as desired for thinner consistency.
For toppings, I went with a homemade granola, the other half a banana and a scoop of sunflower butter. What a fun way to start the day.
Why This Breakfast Works
- Healthy Fats (chia seeds, sunflower butter)
- Protein (milk, yogurt, sunflower butter)
- Healthy Carbohydrates (oatmeal, banana)
