Overnight Oats ~ It’s what’s for Breakfast!!

New week and simple meal plan to fit the life of a busy mom 😉

I know so many moms out there skip out on eating breakfast because they “don’t have time”, or get busy with the family and “forget” to take care of themselves.

Not something that will help us moms over the long haul; so here is a simple recipe to create the night before (or just in the morning) and eat up in a few blissful, morning minutes. Try it for yourself and let me know what you think! We can help each other stay focused along our journey! Fit Moms Inspire!!!

Almond Joy Overnight Oats

fridge oats

1 red container Fage Greek Yogurt (or 3/4 cup)

2 tablespoons almonds, chopped; or 1 tsp. pnut butter

1 yellow container, or 1/3 cup rolled oats

1 tablespoon cacao nibs (optional but yummy for this recipe)

2 tablespoons unsweetened coconut

1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

 

I am in LOVE with this recipe and eat it sometimes 2x a day!! It counts as one protein (or red container); 1 carb (or yellow container), 1 tsp (healthy fat) and an extra yellow for the almond milk/coconut/cacaonibs.  Sometimes I just cut out the coco/cacao and add a small packet of stevia to sweeten instead.

Be sure to watch your sugars and try and limit it to a max of 14g.

Combine all ingredients and stir to blend.

Enjoy in a few hours or overnight.

I would love for you to share your variations and support all of us who have a love for the overnight oats!

It’s quickly becoming a new way of eating!
