Even in the mornings we seem to be much more in a hurry than before, so I started looking for some breakfast ideas that I can prepare the night before. I discovered the "overnight oats", the rolled oats hydrated over night, with different ingredients (I couldn't believe the cool texture they get, similar to a pudding)
Plus, it just takes 3 minutes to prepare them in the evening and in the morning I don't have to worry about breakfast anymore. Î
Ingredients (for one 500ml jar - perfect for 2 kids):
- 1/2 cup instant rolled oats;
- 1/2 cup of milk;
- one 150 ml jar of Greek yogurt;
- 1 tsp chia seeds;
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract;
- 2 Tbsp peanut butter;
- 2 Tbsp carob powder;
- one banana, chopped.
Gently mix all ingredients in a bowl, then place them into jars and close tightly with lids. Leave in the fridge overnight.
They had a huge success with kids, so I plan on testing them in other combinations soon.
