What is your favorite on-the-go breakfast? In winter, mine is oatmeal (with lots of cinnamon and honey). In summer it used to be müesli with yoghurt and fruits. That got a bit repetitive and I never managed to keep the müesli as crispy as I’d like to. With my upcoming job change in mind (which requires commuting) I decided to try something new: Overnight oats, a.k.a. cold oatmeal. Sounds quite nasty actually. You may be thinking why try turn a winter breakfast into a summer version, but let me tell you, it is delish. Cool, refreshing, full of flavor, satisfying and also filling. Perfect for a commute to work. Of course you can experiment around with the flavoring, but you and I both know that peanut butter, banana and chocolate are a match made in heaven.
Peanut Butter, Banana and Chocolate Overnight Oats
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup almond milk
1/4 cup low fat greek yoghurt
3 tsp honey
a large pinch of salt
1 tbsp peanut butter
3 tsp chocolate or cocoa powder
1/2 banana, mashed
a handful of chocolate chips, to top
- This is the simplest recipe of all times.
- Mix all ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a large glass jam jar and seal with a lid.
- Refrigerate over night.
- The next morning remove your oats from the fridge about 10 minutes before indulging and top with your chocolate chips. Voilà. Dig in.
