When in doubt, make some Overnight Oats for breakfast! Why not try some delicious, fall inspired, ‘Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Overnight Oats”?? (That name is a haaaandful, say that three times fast!) Anyway, this jar of deliciousness was the perfect post-workout breakfast to kick off my day at work and hold over my appetite until lunch time! I feel like lately I’ve been tossing pumpkin in everything of mine, but it’s just so tasty and brings the sense of fall into my meals! For those who have not given overnight oats a try ever, this a great, easy go-to breakfast to refuel either before or after a workout and stay full longer than other breakfast meals. Not to mention, they’re a great spin off my regular old oatmeal, and even more yummy!
-1/4 cup organic pureed pumpkin
-1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
-1/2 cup dry oats
-cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice (as much as you’d like, I tend to toss a lot in!)
-1/2 sliced banana
-2 chopped medjool dates
-2 sliced strawberries
-1 tsp of each: chia seeds, ground flax, ground hemp
-Dark Chocolate Stevia (1 tsp)
-1 TBSP of PB2 powder
Directions: So So Simple…allll you need is some kind of mason jar or tightly enclosed container. Add all ingredients, whatever order you want! Shake well so everything gets well mixed in. Let it sit overnight and then when you’re ready in the AM, you can either it cold just like that, or put it into a bowl, heat it for 2 mins on the micro, top it with some nuts and enjoy!!
