Tasty Tuesday : Overnight Oats for Breakfast
When it's hot and humid outside, who really wants to cook?
Here's a breakfast recipe that I rely on that is super easy and requires NO cooking. Summer is here and I'm melting during the nights and the last thing I really want to do is cook when I get up. Thinking about even pulling out a frying pan makes me want to run for the pool. You can whip these ingredients all together the night before and it sets overnight. The crisp and cold oats are ready and waiting for you to eat in morning.
What is also great about this recipe is you can customize it in so many ways. Add in different fresh fruit each morning and it's a whole different breakfast meal! I like to make it into a breakfast parfait. I layer the overnight oats with fresh fruit and honey drizzled on top. My favourite tip I've learned is to add PGX singles. This helps me feel full long into the morning. Make sure to add the PGX into the oats right before you are going to eat them. I've heard others are using the PGX Satisfast (Protein Powder) in the oats just like the PGX singles I added. This gives them an extra dose of protein in their meal. Perfect for building those strong muscles and keeping you full longer! I think I'm going to try the Chocolate PGX Satisfast in my next batch.
