1 cup oats
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp honey
5 tbsp chia seeds
1 pinch salt
2 tsp vanilla extract
⅔ cup vanilla greek yogurt
1 ½ cup almond milk or alternative milk
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 ½ cup chopped peaches
Start with choosing a container you want your overnight oats to be in. I use a tupperware that comes with a lid.
Step 1: Add 1 cup of oats to your container with a pinch of salt to balance the sweetness.
Step 2: Pour 1 ½ cup of any milk you prefer
Step 3: Add the ⅔ cup of vanilla greek yogurt and mix everything together. It should look a little soupy. Don’t stress, that’s what the chia seeds are for. They absorb tons of moisture and will help thicken the oats.
Step 4: In your container, add all of the ingredients together: chia seeds, vanilla extract, cinnamon, honey and brown sugar. Mix everything together.
Step 5: Cut up either ½ a peach or a whole peach, totally up to you. Mix in and top with cinnamon for extra flavor.
This recipe can last in the fridge for three days. Overnight oats are the world’s hidden secret of tastiness. No, these are not your traditional oats warmed and soaked in butter and milk. These provide a bit more of a nutritional boost than you would expect. These oats contain tons of fiber, protein, probiotics, healthy carbohydrates and omega-3 fatty acids.
This specific recipe was designed to feed the craving for a yummy peach cobbler. Since eating healthy is a huge goal for me, I wanted the same yummy flavor and comfort but in my overnight oats. Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring or basic.
