The Perfect Thanksgiving Day Breakfast

 

Looking for a fast, easy breakfast the whole family can enjoy?? Whelp, you got it!

Ok, so I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical about making overnight oats but definitely eager to try them since I get to use my mason jars (I have a not so secret obsession with mason jars!).  My reservations….were they going to be soggy, lack flavor or just plan gross?   I’m happy to report these baby’s are delicious, healthy and packed with protein.  Plus they will keep you full until it’s time to start snacking on hors d’oeuvre’s.   Let’s be honest, most if not all of us will be indulging on Thanksgiving so why not start our day off on a healthy note?  These overnight oats are fast to assemble which is key, especially for someone who is hosting.  All you do is gather the majority of the ingredients the night before, let them soak overnight and simply add the toppings in the morning before you eat them. I recommend pairing these bad boys with a large french roast coffee or english breakfast tea oh and we can’t forget a glass of orange juice, YUM.  These overnight oats won’t disappoint!!  See below for two easy recipes ❤

Vanilla Cinnamon Overnight Oats

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/2 – 2/3 cup unsweetened coconut milk (depends on how you like your consistency, I prefer 2/3 cup)

1/3 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1-2 tablespoons of honey based on desired sweetness

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and add to a mason jar or any container with tight fitting lid.  Pop in the fridge and let the magic happen overnight.

In the morning pop that baby the microwave for a minute to take the chill out. Add some nuts and fresh fruit (I like walnuts and strawberries) maybe add an extra swirl of honey if that’s your thing and enjoy!

 

Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

1/2 cup rolled oats

2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk

1/3 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt

1/2 tablespoon chia seeds

1 tablespoon peanut butter

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and add to a mason jar or any container with a tight fitting lid.  Pop in the fridge and let the magic happen overnight.

In the morning pop that baby the microwave for a minute to take the chill out. Add some fresh fruit (I used blueberries) a dash of cinnamon and enjoy!

These recipes are sure to keep you full until it’s time to feast on your Thanksgiving meal!

Happy Thanksgiving and thanks for stopping by!
