Happy Fourth of July, friends!
I decided to take the month of June off from blogging. My husband and I had a lot going on between traveling, work, and family matters (my sister graduated from high school – woo hoo!). But, with the start of July, I’m ready to get back to it! I’ve missed blogging and sharing with all of you!
Because of all of the personal matters that I mentioned above, my eating habits in June were FAR from healthy….I would start off great each week, and then the weekends would just really derail me from my plan. That being said, I did manage to create one of my all time favorite recipes that I’ve ever made…PB&J Overnight Oats. You guys, this recipe is SO good!
I had been wanting to try overnight oats for a while. I had heard great things about them, but I wasn’t sure how I felt about cold oatmeal….it didn’t sound appetizing to me. But, I was willing to give it a try.
I searched online for a basic overnight oats recipe, and I took inspiration from the first few Google results that I found. Most of these recipes featured some sort of fruit, yogurt and almond milk. Because of my love for PB&J, I thought I’d try to make PB&J overnight oats (I also only had strawberries on-hand).
To my surprise, the first try with this recipe turned out great! I made the oats, took them to work, and absolutely fell in love. I had these oats SO much last month.
So, what did I put in them?
What You Need (1 serving):
- 1/2 cup of oats
- 1 cup of fresh strawberries
- 1/2 cup of almond milk (or regular)
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 cup of vanilla Greek yogurt
- mason jar
- 2 tsp of peanut butter
- Mash up half of the strawberries. This will make your oats have the jelly factor without having to add jelly.
- Add all ingredients into the mason jar.
- Do a quick stir, and then put the lid on the mason jar. Then, shake it up!
- Place into the refrigerator overnight.
The only picture I managed to take….because I eat them way too fast every time. #bloggerfail
This recipe takes only a few minutes, and it is great to prep the night before work or school!
I will for sure be making this recipe a lot this month as I work to get my eating habits back in check. Will you be trying out this recipe? Comment below with your favorite overnight oats recipe!
