I’ve been reading a blog called Kath Eats Real Food like it’s a book. At first I started from her current posts and read backwards but after awhile I decided to go back to January 2012 and read forward. Still only in June 2012 after a couple of days of reading!
After viewing what seemed like hundreds of pictures of her breakfasts I had to try overnight oats. She starts with a basic recipe and always adds different fruits and nut butters and cereal or granola for crunch. Sound good??!
I topped my oats with sliced nectarines, a little cherry granola crumble (more on that later) and a spoonful of sunbutter. Delish!! Chewy and crunchy and sweet from the juicy nectarines. Filling – in a good way. Totally making this again tomorrow!
- 1/3 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup milk (I use either organic skim milk or almond milk)
- 1/3 cup plain yogurt
- 1/2 banana, thinly sliced
- 1/2 tablespoon chia seeds
- pinch salt
- pinch cinnamon
- Stir everything together in a bowl (I used a plastic bowl with a fitted lid and tripled the recipe for myself, Travis and Devin). Place in the fridge overnight. In the morning top with something crunchy and something with healthy fats – like a nut butter or sliced almonds.
