Overnight oats – Strawberry/Banana

My current breakfast routine looks like this…

  • Granola bar
  • Coffee
  • Maybe a banana or two

 

It’s not very filling or nutritious so I needed to find a solution because I’m always tired throughout the day and I’m not getting the nutrients I need to keep my energy up. Overnight Oats is a great way start the day and it’s super easy to make.  It’s filled with healthy fats, healthy carbs and protein. All of the ingredients keep you full until lunch so you won’t sneak in a snack. All you need is a small or medium-sized bowl, Quaker oats or store brand oats, vanilla almond milk, vanilla greek yogurt, chia seeds, 1  banana and strawberries. For a dairy free option, swap out the greek yogurt for coconut yogurt. Prep time is  ten minutes, then you throw it in the fridge overnight. I really REALLY like how the oats came out. The consistency is weird at first since it’s creamy, but after a few more bites it’s very delicious!
