This overnight oat recipe has a delicate, yet rich flavor that would deceive even the most discerning palate into thinking the prep time was far more than 5 minutes. Lucky for us, it takes less than 5 minutes to make and is a perfect grab and go breakfast to help you start your day
Is breakfast the most important meal of the day? I don't like picking favorites... lunch and dinner can be a little sensitive (shhh...). But breakfast does have some pretty important benefits! It's a great way to give your metabolism a little kick start and it can even help you from overeating later on in the day. With that said, I wouldn't encourage someone to go out and have a box of doughnuts for breakfast! The type of breakfast you eat matters. Personally, I prefer a breakfast that is rich in protein, complex carb, and fat. My go-to breakfast tends to be two eggs, 1/2 of an avocado and whole wheat toast. This is what works for my body but some people thrive when they have a carb-rich breakfast that is higher in fiber, just like these overnight oats! The recipe also has the added benefit of some protein and healthy fat which will also keep those mid-morning munchies at bay.
- 1/2 cup of old-fashioned oats
- 1 TBS peanut butter (if you have a nut allergy, sub sunflower butter)
- 3/4 cup milk of choice
- 1/2 tsp of dried lavender
- 1 tsp of honey
- Fruit + granola of choice for topping
- Place the oats, peanut butter, milk, lavender, and honey in a mason jar. Use a spoon to mix. The peanut butter does not have to be completely blended in.
- Place the jar in the refrigerator overnight (4-hour minimum).
- Grab and go in the morning! Eat cold or warmed up with fruit and granola on top.
