Overnight Oats


Recently I've been seeing so many variations for Overnight Oats. What I love about the recipe is that it can be a simple AND healthy grab-and-go breakfast option.

Serves 1

INGREDIENTS
  • ½ cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon Chia seeds
  • 3 oz. Chobani Plain 0% Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • Cinnamon, to taste
  • Stevia, to taste
  • Raspberries
DIRECTIONS
  1. In a glass bowl, combine oats, chia seeds, Greek yogurt, almond milk, cinnamon, and stevia.
  2. Once all ingredients are evenly incorporated, spoon half of the mixture into a glass jar. Then add a few raspberries. Add the remaining half of the mixture, then top with more raspberries.
  3. Seal jar and allow the oat mixture to sit overnight in the refrigerator. Grab for breakfast and enjoy!
*NOTES
  • The longer the mixture sits, the better!
  • If mixture is too stiff in the morning, stir in some more almond milk, a little at a time, to desired consistency.
  • If oats aren't sweet enough, sprinkle with more stevia.
What are your favorite variations?

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Baseballs


Strawberries are in their prime and baseball is still in season. These chocolate covered strawberry baseballs are the perfect indulgence for enjoying America's pastime.

INGREDIENTS
  • Large strawberries
  • Wilton candy melts
  • Wilton piping bags
  • Parchment paper
DIRECTIONS
  1. Wash and dry strawberries. Make sure strawberries are at room temperature before dipping!
  2. Heat white chocolate candy melts in a microwave safe mug (this was better than a bowl since it was deeper) then carefully dip the strawberries and place them on the parchment paper to harden.
  3. Once the white chocolate has hardened, melt the red chocolate candy melts in the piping bag. Carefully remove from the microwave and pipe the baseball laces onto the strawberry. Let chocolate dry, then serve and enjoy!
