Toasted Coconut Overnight Oats in a jar

IMG_9119.jpg

One of my top favorite breakfasts happens when I have am empty(ish) peanut butter jar. I love making warm oats and pouring them into the almost empty peanut butter jar, because it gets all melty and just MMMM S'GOOD!! You can get every last bit of nut butter from that jar. It is the most heavenly breakfast.  

I have gotten so many weird looks when I'm walking through campus in the morning with my oats in a PB jar in my hand. It's hilarious. I've gotten multiple questions along the lines of, "Umm, are you eating just straight peanut butter right now?" Pshhhht nah brah. Well, I mean...I wouldn't put that past me though because I do that all the time in my dorm room, just not usually in public. And I would have no problem eating straight nut butter out of a jar with a spoon anyhow. I'd even bathe in it if I could. 

This time around though, when my family got to the end of this peanut butter jar, I decided to make cold overnight oats. I was inspired when I opened my fridge at home and spotted California Farms Toasted Coconut Almond Milk. This is the key ingredient to these delicious oats, along with coconut creme liquid stevia.

Give it a try sometime! It's like tropical toasty coconutty goodness. Isn't my vocabulary just top notch? Lol no. I've never been good with my words :) 

Plus this breakfast will keep you full all morning because of the complex carbs from the oats, lots of protein from the greek yogurt, and healthy fats from the peanut butter and chia seeds. 

Ingredients:

  • One almost empty Peanut Butter jar (Make sure there's 2-4 TB in that bad boy...it makes it that much tastier)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • A little over 1/2 cup California Farms Toasted Coconut Almond Milk
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 4 drops liquid coconut stevia drops (It's actually not as liquidy as I thought -- it's thicker than most other stevia drops, but just put in 4 very small little drops. A little goes a long way.)
  • 1/2 TB chia seeds

Directions:

  1. In a bowl: Combine oats, toasted coconut almond milk, plain greek yogurt, coconut stevia drops, and chia seeds.
  2. Pour into an almost empty peanut butter jar.
  3. Place in the fridge overnight.
  4. In the morning, add any fruit if you'd like or granola or nuts for some crunch.
