I have been seeing overnight oats EVERYWHERE lately. It’s been on my list of things to try for breakfast for weeks. Well, I finally got around to it! The idea is that before you go to bed you simply add a few ingredients into a jar and put it in the fridge overnight. In the morning you simply add a few ingredients and you have basically a trifle breakfast in a jar!
If you’re wondering where to find sweet potato butter – I’m about to be that girl (you know the one who’s scarf you love and you ask where she got it and she says “paris”) – I found it in Montana. In Red Lodge, there is this store called Babcock and Miles they have fancy cheeses and wine and pastas and things like sweet potato butter! If you’ve never had sweet potato butter you should really try it! I currently want to put it on everything.
Yield: 1 serving
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Ingredients for the night before:
1/4 cup of milk - I used vanilla almond milk
1/4 cup of old fashion oats
1/4 cup of Chobani vanilla or plain yogurt
2 teaspoons chia seeds, optional
Dribble of vanilla extract
Sprinkle of cinnamon
In the morning:
1 nectarine, sliced into bite size pieces
2 tablespoons udi's natural granola
2 tablespoons sweet potato butter
1 tablespoon peanut butter
Night before: Put all of these items in a 12 ounce mason jar and give it a good stir. Put the lid on the jar and put it in the fridge overnight. Yes, I just discovered chia seeds - they are SO good for you! I found a bag of them at Whole Foods.
The morning of: Use any combination you want - 1/2 a banana sliced, strawberries sliced, almond butter, more yogurt, etc. The ingredients above are my current favorite combination. I layer the nectarine first - then the sweet potato butter, half the granola, then the peanut butter and the other half of the granola. The second I was done taking pictures I stirred the whole thing together
