Prep Time

5

Prep Notes

This needs to refrigerate overnight.

Cooking Time

0 minutes

Yields

1 serving

Ingredients

1/3 cup rolled oats

1/3 – 1/2 cup milk [can be almond, coconut, soy…amount depends on how thick you like it]

1/3 cup plain yogurt (optional, add more liquid if omitting)

1/2 banana

1/2 tbsp chia seeds

Pinch salt

Pinch cinnamon

Optional –sweetener (try to opt for a natural sweetener if you do this, such as honey, maple syrup, rice syrup)

Directions

  1. Stir everything together in a bowl. 
  2. Place in fridge overnight. 
  3. In the morning top with something crunchy or sweet (like fresh fruit and nuts) 

Notes

There is NO COOKING involved at all!  (Although you could heat them just a tiny bit in the microwave to take the chill out)

Evey’s Note:  Nuts will add healthy fats that we need as well!  Walnuts are especially high in the good-for-you Omega 3 fatty acids!  Almonds are good too.  You can also add almond or other type of nut butter.

Evey’s Note again:  You can use steel cut oats instead of the rolled oats (healthier for you).  You will want to put the mixture in a blender beforehand though.  Add fruit, nuts  after blending

TIME SAVING TIP: Make a batch of this at the beginning of the week and just reheat the amount you want.
