It’s easy to get stuck in routines…. doing the same thing and eating the same thing.
Of course, if something works for you then you don’t necessarily need to change it. I.e, if it’s not broken, don’t fix it.
But every now and then a little variation can be a good idea… so if you are someone who loves your oatmeal and eats the same oatmeal over and over, why not change it up a bit. There are so many different ways to eat oats. The way you prepare it, what flavours you add and other extras you add to your oats can all change the texture and taste. I am pretty sure if you were creative enough you could eat a new combo/flavour of oatmeal everyday!
As i mentioned on my Instagram, one of my goals for 2019 was to share more snacks/breakfasts, because well… 90% of my feed is just savoury lunches and dinners. But i do infact eat breakfast and snacks, however they aren’t always so creative or picture worthy.
When you want to eat more plantbased it can be tough to know what to eat for snacks and you may just eat the same thing on repeat, so hopefully my snack ideas will spark some inspiration – and this one is a favourite!
You can see some of my other snacks ideas, HERE. Such as home made granola, pizza rolls, chia pudding tofu scramble, scones etc
You don’t have to make this as overnight oats, you can boil everything together (which is what i did), but i have also made these as overnight oats where i just combine everything and leave in the fridge over night!
For the peanut butter banana overnight oats, you need: (This makes around 2 jars/servings)
1,5 large bananas
c.a 80g oats
1 tbsp chia seeds
1-2 tbsp peanut butter
Around 400-500ml liquid such as oatmilk, coconut milk or water (or 50/50)
Cinnamon & vanilla
Pinch of salt (optional)
Chop the banana into slices.
In a pot add the oats, peanut butter, chia seeds, cinnamon, vanilla, pinch of salt and your liquid of choice. Also add half of your chopped banana.
Heat on medium heat and stirring every few minutes so that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot. Allow it to thicken – add more liquid if necessary. It takes about 5-10 minutes!
When done top with the rest of the banana and optional walnuts and chocolate pieces!
If you are making overnight oats, just combine everything and pour into 2-3 jars/bowls and allow to thicken overnight!
