They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. The Domestic Geek shows us 5 amazing overnight oatmeals that will be waiting for you in the morning.
These are really delicious and nutritional for you to start your day off right. This overnight oatmeal has can become a complete stable to kick start your day. What is great about these oatmeal breakfasts is that you can prepare them the night before, and in the morning you can eat it cold or heat it up…it’s just ready to go!
The basic recipe couldn’t be easier. You’re working with 1/3 cup of oats, in a mason jar, add one tablespoon of chia seeds, or you can use protein powder instead. Then you add a quarter cup of milk of your choice, a quarter cup of greek yogurt, then whatever flavorings you decide. The flavor possibilities are endless!
Her favorite flavors are:
Carrot Cake flavored oatmeal: You start out by adding the oatmeal and 1 tablespoon of chia seeds, milk and greek yogurt. Then you add maple syrup, for your carrot cake flavor, a little bit of cinnamon and some shredded carrot, and then, of course, some pecans for crunch.
Blueberry Lemon: Again, start with the oats, chia seeds, yogurt and milk. Top that with a splash of vanilla, some blueberry jam, a handful of blueberries, and then, just a little bit of lemon rind for a bit of zesty lemon flavor.
Chocolate Strawberry: Few things in the world go better than strawberry and chocolate. Add your oats, chia seeds, yogurt and then add some honey to add a bit of sweetness (optional), a scoop of cocoa powder, fresh cut strawberries (you can do this with oranges or cherries), then add just a little bit of shaved chocolate for some added decadence.
Banana Nut: It tastes almost like banana nut bread! To the standard recipe she adds a little bit of maple syrup, some nut butter, she uses peanut butter, but you could use walnut butter, or cashew butter, some walnuts and of course some fresh banana slices.
