My friend introduced me to overnight oats a while ago but it has taken me months to find the courage to actually try them for myself. In fact at first I couldn’t imagine them to be very appetising at all but that’s because I am a very visual eater and also very picky with my porridge in particular. Now I make them up every two days and I’m really enjoying them. I posted a recipe that I made last week of Chocolate & Chia Seeds Overnight Oats and this week I’m sharing the recipe to some Peanut Butter Overnight Oats.
- 40g Rolled Oats
- 10g Chia Seeds
- 15g Maple or Golden Syrup
- 35g Peanut Butter
- 20g Raisins
- 150ml Almond Milk
- Mix all ingredients together into a mason jar or bowl.
- Cover and put in the fridge.
- Serve the next day. Warm up for 30 seconds and enjoy.
- You can add some toppings in the morning like fresh fruit or raisins for an added health kick.
Peanut butter is a little like marmite, you either love it or you hate it. Personally I love the smooth variety on toast the best so I thought I’d give this recipe a go and I have slightly adapted it to my own preferences. It was so delicious and I have found that eating overnight oats in the morning for breakfast really does leave me feeling full for longer. Teamed with a snack around 10:30am of some fruit and my weight loss is really kicking off. I feel less bloated too!
Do you make overnight oats? I’d love to hear some of your favourite recipes! I’ll be posting another one next week too and whenever I’m brave enough to try other flavours.
