Breakfast: Overnight Oats

This is my new favorite breakfast.
And it is uber easy.
And it's clean.

Here's what you need for the 'base':
1/3 c. Greek Yogurt
1/3 c. Oats (just regular ol' oats)
1/3 Milk (or soy/almond milk)

Mix this all up in a tupperware and set in the fridge the night before you want to eat it.
The oats will absorb all the liquid and soften!

Then, add in any fun extras!
Here's my standard:
Almond Meal
Wheat Germ
Local Raw Honey
Whole Foods Peanut Butter

It is soooo good.
It seriously *almost* tastes like a peanut butter shake.
That you eat with a spoon.
For breakfast.

It is super filling and filled with all sorts of good stuff!

Can I talk to you about the peanut butter?

If you have never had Whole Foods freshly ground Honey Roasted Peanut Butter, you haven't lived.


It is so delicious, you could just eat it straight from the tub.
You must try it.

But for overnight oats, you can get creative!

Another combo I like is the 'base', plus wheat germ, flax seed, almond meal, apple pie spice and apple butter!
Tastes like apple pie!

I've heard of others doing the 'base' plus pumpkin pie spice and canned pumpkin!
Or you could add peanut butter and jelly!

The combinations are endless!

But it truly is a filling, delicous, healthy breakfast!

Have you ever tried them?


  1. we LOVE our pumpkin pie oatmeal which might be similar, worth a try for sure :)

  2. Oh scrummy Ill have to give this a go im completely bored with porridge!
