Overnight Oats

IMG_1476

 

I have a Quest bar problem.  Recently I’ve been trying to cut back and find some other, more natural, eats to substitute instead of eating 5 Quest bars a day…oops.  🙂  This one is SO easy, and you can do so much with it – it’s really limitless to what you could add to this recipe!  Some recipes I found added a touch of yogurt to it, nuts, all kinds of berries, and dried fruits, so experiment and make it your own!  I didn’t even have to add sweetener to this at all – it was just sweet enough with the berries, and I tried it both hot and cold, and loved it both ways.    Yeah, I swing both ways when it comes to overnight oats.  🙂

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats (I love the Trader Joe’s brand!)
  • 1 cup almond milk (I also want to try coconut milk and see how that is)
  • Your choice of berries

DIRECTIONS

  1. Pour the oats into a bowl.
  2. Add the milk and berries
  3. Cover and place in the fridge overnight.
  4. In the am – take it out and enjoy cold or heat it up in the microwave!

    Oh girl!!! You HAVE to! I have a bit of a problem with them though… I like them a bit too much. Try the chocolate chip cookie dough, and take it out of the wrapper – put it in the microwave for 12 seconds and – boom – life changed! Such a great snack and a good source of protein without the sugars and carbs!!! Let me know what you think!
