Recipe: Overnight Oats

15 Oct

I am obsessed with overnight oats. I could eat them every single day, multiple times a day. So darn good.

So what are overnight oats? Well, you’re about to find out!

Overnight oats are a combination of ingredients that soak in your fridge overnight. There are so many awesome combinations of overnight oats, and it is hard to go wrong when making them.

Below is one of my favorite recipes for the oats that I make a few times a week.

One thing to be aware of when making these is to monitor what you are putting in. If you don’t watch your ingredients carefully this could become a higher calorie meal or snack than you would want.

The chocolate almond milk is amazing!! But you could use regular almond or plain milk.

This Greek Gods yogurt is now one of my favorites.

Use frozen fruit or fresh fruit. All works great!

These take some getting used to but have great benefits (so people say).

When I am not marathon training I use PB2. Lighter calorie option for the PB flavor.

Layer it all up, put it in the fridge overnight!

Stir up and enjoy in the morning. I like to add some crunchy Kashi on top.

Calorie counts depend on the ingredients you add. This combination is around 300 calories and I eat it for breakfast. You can make it lower if you use lowfat yogurt, PB2 and plain almond milk.

  • 1/2c Almond Milk
  • 1/3c Greek Yogurt
  • Fruit (frozen or fresh)
  • 1tsp Chia Seeds
  • 1/4c Oats
  • 1/2tsp PB

Dump all ingredients in a bowl. Put in the fridge overnight. Stir up and enjoy in the morning.

(This will stay good for a couple days, so make a double batch to save time!)

Hope you enjoy!!!

Have you made overnight oats? Any tips or tricks to share with me?

Healthy Cookie Heaven

25 Jan

I LOVE cookies, and I wanted to take a quick moment to share with you all my favorite healthy cookie recipe.

This recipe is from celebrity chef (and my favorite Bravo-lebrity) Bethenny Frankel.

Ingredients

Dry
1 & 1/2 cups Oat Flour (I use wheat flour)
3/4 cup Rolled Oats
1/3 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Wet
1/2 raw sugar (yeah..I just use regular)
1/3 cup chocolate chips (dark chips are fab)
1 teaspoon canola oil
1/3 cup soy milk
1/2 cup banana puree (I blend 1 large or 2 small bananas up in my GNC blender)
1 teaspoon vanilla

**If you’re adventurous, add some Chia seeds! This will give it an extra crunch and added nutrients!

What to do

  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. Combine all wet ingredients, mix
  3. Combine all dry ingredients, mix
  4. Mix it all together until the batter is sticky (don’t panic – this recipe is relatively dry)
  5. Use tablespoon and scoop batter onto cookie sheet
  6. Bake 12 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through cooking (monitor cookies to ensure they do not over cook!)

 

Enjoy!!
