I have been on a bit of an oatmeal kick lately so when I came across this recipe on Pintrest (of course) I had to try it! Basically you mix old fashioned rolled oats, milk (i used Almond Coconut Milk), Greek yogurt (i had to use non dairy So Delicious yogurt), chia seeds and then add whatever mix ins you want. I got these awesome 8 oz. plastic “mason jars” at Target today…they are perfect! You mix the ingredients together and let them sit over night in the fridge and they are ready to eat, no heating up required! These seem like they would be great for the kids for breakfast or snacks and with these handy dandy plastic “mason jars” they would be great for on the go too! Click here for the full recipes..
These are the ones I made:
Banana Peanut Butter
Peanut Butter, Coconut, Almond & Chocolate Chip
(that last one isn’t on the site i just through what i had in!)
I made these tonight so I haven’t been able to try them yet…I will update on my Facebook page after I try each one if you would like to know how they came out 🙂
I do post more on my Facebook page so if you’d like come on over and “like” my page…fitness motivation, workouts, recipes, and more!
I hope these come out good!! They look so yummy, can’t wait to try them! Let me know if you try them and if you have any other combos to try! 🙂
Who says breakfast can’t taste like dessert and still be good for you!? I had this today for breakfast…sooo good, I could eat it for dessert too! It tastes like an Almond Joy candy bar!! What more do I need to say?!
I used Silk Coconut milk to make the oatmeal, you could use any milk you want (or even water but personally I don’t think it tastes as good!). After you make the oatmeal just sprinkle in some sliced almonds, shredded unsweetened coconut, and some mini chocolate chips ( i used Enjoy Life , they are dairy, nut and soy free). So quick, simple, filling , good for you and yummy! 🙂
