Pie for breakfast? Well, yeah, that is kind of what this tastes like. Hop on my non-dairy version of this bad boy. You just wait...
Since getting on this overnight oats kick, I've tried just about every concoction under the sun when it comes to toppings. My go-to tends to be peanut butter, stevia or raw honey, chia seeds, and banana, which is tasty as ever. However, my kitchen experiment the other day really changed up the game. This recipe is one you will have to try... seriously.
Why overnight oats? Oats contain phytic acid on the outer layer of the grain. When digested, it binds to the vitamins and minerals and blocks absorption in the intestinal track. By soaking your oats, you allow enzymes to neutralize phytic acid as well as increase B vitamins!
Peachy Overnight Oats
1 small ripe peach
1/2 c. rolled oats
1 c. coconut almond milk
2 large spoonfuls of plain almond yogurt
toppings: chia seeds, coconut flakes, stevia or honey
In a mason jar, mix in the oats, 1 tsp of chia seeds, and non-dairy milk. Let that sit together overnight or for at least 2 hours.
Once ready, warm up the oats (in a stove top pan) and mix in one packet of stevia or 1 tbs. of honey.
Then, grab a cup of choice and begin to assemble.
Scoop out 1/2 the oatmeal first, then 1 large spoonful of the almond yogurt, then a few dices of the peaches. Repeat : scoop out the other 1/2 of the oatmeal, a spoonful of the yogurt and peaches on top again.
Sprinkle chia seeds and coconut shavings on top for extra flavor and there you have it!
This is a GREAT breakfast choice, especially pre-workout : )
