This is one of my favourite go-to breakfasts.
The oats and banana are great for sustained slow release energy, the chia seeds are full of fiber and high in essential fatty acids, and the peanut butter packs a real protein punch. Add the blueberries for an antioxidant boost.
1/3 cup rolled oats
2 tbsp chia seeds
1 cup water or almond milk
½ tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp peanut butter
A handful of blueberries (optional)
- The night before, mix the oats, chia seeds and water/milk together in a jar or container with a cover. Make sure to mix completely so the chia seeds are not stuck together. Soak covered overnight in the fridge.
- The next morning, chop the banana in half. Mash half the banana until it’s a puree. Mix it in with the cinnamon, peanut butter and oat-chia mixture.
- With the remaining banana, slice it into bite-sized pieces.
- Add the chopped banana on top of the oats. Add the optional blueberries if you like.
