I probably have an unhealthy relationship with peanut butter. My deepest sympathies for people who are allergic to peanuts. The Peanut Gods have blessed us all with the beautiful thing that is grinded up peanuts with sea salt. It has protein, potassium, fiber, magnesium AND healthy fats? Where do I sign up?! You can add it to virtually any breakfast item- waffles, pancakes and my dear friend, oatmeal.
This, my friends, is the easiest breakfast in existence. Overnight oats, why are you so fantastic? If you’re anything like me, I have a hard time eating warm oats. Probably all of the years I spent forcing myself to eat tasteless oatmeal thinking “THIS IS HEALTHY” has tainted me. Well, now I’m hooked on these overnight oats recipes I see all over the internet. However, this is the easiest one I have adopted as my go-to breakfast. It’s done overnight so you don’t have to spend extra time in the morning cooking anything! It takes about 5 minutes and it’s also versatile in the toppings you can eat it with. Sold yet?
Okay it doesn’t look very appetizing but, I can assure you it’s delicious. Almond milk, oatmeal, maple syrup, and peanut butter. That’s it. Add whatever topping you’d like in the morning and you’re ready to start your day with lots of fiber and minerals to keep your body fueled! HURRAY! This recipe was adapted from The Minimalist Baker’s overnight oats. She’s amazing and if you don’t know her, which I highly doubt you don’t, I strongly suggest you take a visit to her website and become entranced in all of these beautiful recipes!
Almond milk is your friend- unless you’re allergic of course. It contains calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, I mean.. could this be any more of a power breakfast?!
- Peanut Butter- $3.14
- Quick Oats- $2.50

This will last about two weeks (2 work weeks, 10 days) if not used for anything else!
Try it out, add fun toppings, and let me know how much you love (or hate) it!
