delicious and healthy overnight oats

I'm going to start adding some recipes to el blog (la blog?)! Bear with me as you'll start seeing a lot more so I can get them on here and in the right section! 

One of my favorite easy breakfasts to make are overnight oats! The most common question I get asked about them is, "Do you eat them cold?" Yes! Because I add greek yogurt to them, it gives it more of a pudding texture- so think pudding, not so much "oatmeal" if that helps you get over that mental roadblock of cold oatmeal. ;-)



I use the same base recipe (oats, almond milk, water, greek yogurt) and then switch it up depending on the flavor I'm in the mood for! They're all delicious!


Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie Overnight Oats
 

1/2 cup oats
1/3 c unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/4 c nonfat vanilla greek yogurt
1/4 c water
1/2t brown sugar
1/2 packet or 1/2 scoop of vanilla Quest protein powder
1t peanut butter
Optional: sprinkles, banana

Mix all of the ingredients (except banana) in a mason jar. I usually stir it, then put the lid on and shake it well. Refrigerate overnight or at least 4 hours. I usually always top mine with a banana and a few extra sprinkles!

(To make this lower in points, you can use less oats, omit the almond butter, or use 2gm of mini chocolate chips instead of 6)
