I’ve got a delicious overnight oats recipe for you guys, but first a quick re-cap of the events of yesterday.
Monday was my last day of vacation. Accordingly, I spent the entire morning watching the Today show with Louie, breakfast and a big cup of coffee. When it was finally time to get going, I did a 3 mile steady pace run and a little bit of ab/arm work.
Next came the fun! A little DIY project.. I’ll share more with you guys later:
And a wine and paint party at Sara and Ellen’s, where I produced this masterpiece..
Disclaimer: I use the term “masterpiece” as loosely as possible.
I’ve already plunged into the vast world of oatmeal recipes on the blog when I shared with you a favorite Steel Cut Oats Recipe. Another version of oatmeal that is a go-to for me on many mornings is Overnight Oats. As long as you’ve got the basic ingredients (oats, milk [dairy, almond, or soy], greek yogurt), there really is no wrong way to prepare this dish.
I LOVE overnight oats because they’re a great way to get out the door quickly in the morning and still eat a hearty breakfast. The prep work is done the night before, so all there is left to do in the morning is grab and eat!
The version I had yesterday morning was one that heavily featured blueberries!
Honey Vanilla Blueberry Overnight Oats
3/4 cups old fashioned oats
5 oz. vanilla greek yogurt
1/2 cup vanilla almond milk
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Handful of blueberries
Handful of walnuts
A couple swirls of honey
The evening before you wish to enjoy this breakfast, combine oats, greek yogurt, almond milk, walnuts and cinnamon in a bowl. Stir until incorporated and place in the refrigerator, covered, until the morning. When you’re ready to eat, add in blueberries, a splash of almond milk, and honey. If you prefer a super-sweet bowl of oatmeal, add in a sprinkle of Stevia sweetener!
Please share if you have any delicious and unexpected recipes for overnight oats. I’d love to try them out!
