Hazelnut brownie-flavored overnight oats that are ready for you first thing in the morning.
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 International Delight Simply Pure Coffee Creamer in Hazelnut and cocoa powder. Who can resist brownie batter?! Not me!
Such a simple recipe, but it makes for a delicious, wholesome breakfast. The Simply Pure Hazelnut creamer adds a light hazelnut taste and so much creaminess. It’s made with real milk, cream and sugar. I love it in my coffee everyday, and I knew that it would add such a yummy flavor to my breakfast oats as well.
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!
