PB&J Overnight Oats: The Perfect Sleep-In Breakfast
As I mentioned in my Lifehacks for Procrastinators post, I am a big fan of a breakfast that lets me sleep in as long as possible (my standby is a bowl of boiled eggs in the fridge). So imagine my delight when Pinterest introduced me to the world of overnight oats.
After playing around with a few recipes, I came up with this little on-the-go gem to fortify me on mornings when I’m pressed for time.
This recipe fills one large or two small mason jars.
It’s protein-packed peanut butter and jelly, with a twist!
1/2 cup oats (not quick-cooking)
1/2 cup greek yogurt
1/2 cup frozen fruit
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup milk (or water)
1 scoop vega choc-a-lot protein smoothie
1 Tbsp coconut oil (melted)
1 Tbsp ground flaxseed
1 tsp vanilla
1 pinch cinnamon (to taste)
Combine oats, cinnamon, vanilla, coconut oil, protein powder and flax. Mix in additional ingredients and layer with frozen fruit into a mason jar or other portable container. Leave the jar in the fridge overnight and your oats will be ready to eat in the morning!
