Breakfast

OVERNIGHT OATS

One serving

Ingredients:

¼ cup oat groats

Water

2 tbsp chia seeds

¾ cup milk

1 banana, mashed

1 tbsp cacao powder

1-2 tbsp maple syrup

Directions:

Place oat groats in a bowl and fill with water until about double the amount of oats.  Soak overnight on counter.

In a small mason jar with tight fitting lid, place the rest of the ingredients.  Stir with a fork, or put lid on and shake, shake, shake. Place in fridge overnight.

In the morning, drain the water off the oats and rinse well.  Add oats to mason jar (it will have thickened overnight) and stir well. 

Options:  You can use rolled oats in place of the oat groats and they can be placed directly in mason jar with other ingredients.  No soaking in water required.

You can change up the fruit and omit cacao powder.  Try blueberries and strawberries, or apple cinnamon.
