Day 4 into quitting cereal and going strong! My breakfast burrito yesterday had me feeling pretty good all morning. I was full but not too full and didn’t get hungry again for several hours. For today I made some super easy overnight oats. It took me about 10 minutes last night to put it together and get it in the refrigerator.
The chia seeds that are mixed in to the mashed strawberries really make it seem like jelly. Delish. The oats are very peanut buttery, so if you can’t handle too much peanut butter flavor and want to cut some calories and fat out of this recipe, opt for only half a tablespoon of peanut butter.
Here’s my comparison with my usual cereal breakfast, it’s crazy how filling this recipe is and it still has way less carbs and sugar:
Peanut Butter and Jelly Overnight Oats
- In a small bowl, whisk PB2 and almond milk until smooth. Add peanut butter and mix until smooth. Mix in rolled oats. Set aside.
- In a small microwave safe dish, microwave strawberries for 30 seconds. Mash the strawberries and mix in chia seeds.
- Layer oats mixture and strawberries in a re-sealable container. Refrigerate overnight.
- Mix yogurt and protein until smooth. Top the oats with yogurt mixture just before serving.
