Hazelnut brownie-flavored overnight oats that are ready for you first thing in the morning. Try these Brownie Batter Overnight Oats for a delicious, filling breakfast.
If you’ve been reading my blog lately, then you’ve heard about my goal to eat a better breakfast.
This has been a daily struggle.
I generally hit the ground running first thing in the morning (not literally), and by the time I do some work, get everyone ready for the day, make lunches, and do school drop-off— I’m starving and reaching for a bag of cookies.
It’s simply not good to run on empty for half the day, so I’m determined to get some good, wholesome food into my body so I can continue that momentum throughout my day.
I’ve discovered two tricks that help me to make better food choices in the morning: make it the night before & make it tasty. Let’s face it– if it’s better for me, but tastes bland, I’m not going to eat it. And then what’s the point?
So I thought I would try out an overnight oat recipe, but add my own tasty spin, with hazelnut creamer and cocoa powder. Who can resist brownie batter?! Not me!
Such a simple recipe, but it makes for a delicious, wholesome breakfast.
It tastes so rich, but it’s full of wholesome ingredients. And it keeps me going all the way until lunch.
Mix it up in a big bowl, scoop into containers (my fave are glass jars), and leave overnight in the fridge. In the morning, pop out to enjoy with a spoon. Some days, I’ll add a few chocolate chips or whipped cream as a little extra something. So much goodness in that jar, it’s totally cause for celebration.
I love how I can whip it up the night before, and it lasts until morning or even a few days later. Just a little bit of planning means a week of good, filling breakfasts for me.
Score one for Mom!
