Yesterday, while taking a much too long study break from learning the muscles of the upper body, I was perusing a handful of my favorite blogs.
During my study break I was inspired to prepare some scrumptious overnight oats after reading Leanne’s Overnight Oats on fitandflowyoga.com!
In the past I would whip up overnight oats for a great breakfast on the go, and reading Leanne’s post yesterday made me want nothing more than to wake up to a cool refreshing breakfast.
The recipe on my soon-to-be sister’s blog (Check out Leanne’s blog for more great recipes, yoga tips, and health and wellness inspiration) is paired with pictures that will make you hungry, just a fair warning 🙂 .
I followed her go-to breakfast as a guideline with just a few adjustments! Here is what I came up with
¼ cup Quaker Quick Oats
½ cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
1 Tbsp. Chia Seeds
1 Tbsp. crushed almonds
1Tbsp. pure maple syrup
I banana sliced
4 strawberries sliced
1 pinch of shredded coconut
First I put the oats, almond milk, and chia seeds in a nearly empty jar of cocoa almond butter, and stuck it in the fridge. Overnight the oats and chia seeds expanded while absorbing the delicious flavor of the spread and almond milk.
In the morning, after my five mile run, (cheers for completing part of goal #1 I posted about yesterday!! Visit yesterdays post: There’s Something About Mondays to get the inside scoop.) I topped my creation with a pinch of shredded coconut, crushed almonds, maple syrup, banana slices, and strawberries slices.
