I’m always looking for a breakfast meal that will keep me satisfied all morning! Typically, I eat something small like a granola bar before I head out for a run or go to the gym and then I eat something more substantial after I get back. However, I am not the most patient cook on the planet so I like to find quick but healthy alternatives. I’ve been loving overnight oats recently and I’ve found a bunch of great recipes on Pinterest that I keep adding to my boards! Today when I woke up, I was craving oatmeal but I didn’t prepare anything last night. The Quaker instant packets in my pantry were not calling my name…they’re just not filling! So I settled for this yummy recipe instead: Peanut Butter Banana Oats 🙂 Inspired by Undressed Skeleton, I substituted chia seeds for flax seeds and opted for a few almonds instead of hazelnuts. It was yummy!
What You Will Need:
– 1 cup almond milk
– 1 TBSP chia seeds
– 1 banana
– 1/2 TBSP peanut butter
– 1 tsp almonds
Putting It All Together:
1. Combine oats, milk, and chia seeds in a small bowl.
2. Cook in the microwave for 1 minute or until oats begin to thicken.
3. Slice banana and add to oatmeal.
4. Add peanut butter & almonds.
