Yields 1 serving

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup milk or unsweetened plant milk (I use soy)
  • 3/4 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp (natural) peanut or almond butter
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats

Add 1/2 a scoop of protein powder for added protein or if you like a bit more of a pudding like consistency. 

And now that I think about it, this one might be good with some bacon.....

Instructions:

  1. In a small mixing bowl, add milk (or plant milk), chia seeds, peanut butter (or other nut/seed butter) and maple syrup and stir to combine.  The nut butter doesn't have to be completely mixed with the milk.  
  2. Add oats and stir to combine.  Spoon mixture into a jar or mug, cover and store in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours and up to 2 days.  
  3. Add cinnamon to taste and/or fruit for topping.  Enjoy!
