Are you one of those “just made it to work on time” people (I see you!) struggling to eat a healthy, well-balanced breakfast? I would say most of us experience crazy mornings and often find ourselves fueling our bodies with “convenient” pre-packaged or drive thru breakfast meals. Not good people, not good!
Introducing this stress-relieving, no hassle, 5 minute overnight oat recipe that will not only take you into monday morning with a smile but the entire week! With 7 healthy interchangeable ingredients, and a mason jar you can wake up each day knowing your breakfast is made! (Preferred they also make for the perfect mid-day snack!) So wave goodbye to those dull, good-for-nothing, boring breakfasts and say HELLO to these delicious overnight oats which quite frankly taste more like dessert!
I named these oats “Proats“no this is not a typo! My good friend Nicole Darabi from http://nicoledarabi.com introduced the word “proat” to me the other day while we were chatting and explained that it is now one of her go-to, everyday meals for either breakfast or mid-day snack combining oats with protein powder making it a perfectly balanced meal. A mega-dose of fiber (oats), protein (Nuzest pea protein, almonds and chia seeds), vitamins and antioxidants (blueberries, pomegranate seeds, mangos), and healthy fats (coconut.)
Thanks to my friends at Weck, these deliciously satisfying oats are easily transported from home to work, to the gym, to school, or wherever need be. They are truly stunning jars made from quality glass that will last me for years and years to come. The lid comes with a snug suction attachment along with metal clips so you can rest assured your yumminess inside will be safe from spills or leaks.
If your anything like me I love the taste of oatmeal no matter what time of year it is. With these overnight oats you have the option of heating them up in the morning giving you the quickest and most convenient oatmeal involving no cooking whatsoever! OR you can enjoy them as is, adding a splash of milk and a few extra toppings making them so refreshing and satisfying. Either way I can guarantee you everything about the combination of rolled oats + blueberry vanilla flavour + crunchy almonds & coconut flakes will have you wishing you could do it all over again… seriously.
If you can, try and find coconut flakes that are unsweetened, organic and all natural as many brands add in high amounts of added sugar and flavourings which is NOT something you want to sprinkle on top of this all around amazing healthy bowl of goodness.
This is the brand I like to use most — Hungry Buddha — which have an insanely delicious lineup of all natural coconut chips ranging from flavours like original, cheeky chocolate, smoking srircha, heavenly honey, wild wasabi and (my favourite) pumpkin spice!
