This week I’ve really jumped into gear with my cooking and being better about not eating out. However, I was struggling with healthy easy, on-the-go options. I found this recipe on MyWholeFoodLife.com and was inspired to try it. So last night I took the recipe and added my own flair to it by adjusting some of the ingredients – and this morning it was soooo delicious I was surprised at how much I liked it.
- 1/2 cup oats
- I used Quaker Oats, Old Fashioned – not instant, but you can use whatever kind you want. You don’t have to cook them, just put them in to the mixture dry.
- 1/2 cup Almond Milk
- I used the 30 calorie unsweetened version
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tblsp Unsweetened Coconut Shredded
- 1 – 2 Medjool Dates chopped
Then all I did was mix it together well in my bowl, put the lid on it & put it in the refrigerator. Then this morning, I took it out – mixed it again added 2 strawberries and headed out. You can add the strawberries in before, but I wasn’t sure how that would turn out. Anyways in the end it turns out to be approx. 215 calories, easy and delicious… so I call that a winner!
Let me know how you liked it or if you have any favorite overnight oats!
