Do I have an obsession with oats? Possibly. Can you be mad though? No. Oats are my favorite anytime snack because you can literally mix them with just about everything. You’ll definitely be seeing more recipes including oats because, yum.
As all my recipes go, there are a million variations to keep your breakfast and snacks exciting, so you can’t really mess them up.
¾ cup old fashioned oats (important: steel cut oats won’t soak up milk)
1 cup almond milk (I use unsweetened vanilla)
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp nut butter (I use almond butter)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 medium banana
In a mason jar or Tupperware (whatever you’re going to eat it out of the next day), mix ingredients (in that order), stir, refrigerate… um, that’s all! There should be excess milk when you put it in the fridge, but the oats will soak it up overnight. In the morning (or just a couple hours later), you’ll find the consistency of regular oatmeal. Served cold. Yum! For a post-workout addition, I add a little vanilla protein powder for extra taste and recovery.
