{recipe} blueberry banana pie overnight oats

I'm sticking with my EAT EVERYTHING COLD mentality right now.

Remember my smoothie from yesterday? 
Well. I'm adding a new cold breakfast into the mix.

Overnight - oats - are -  a - blogging - sensation.

You can make a standard recipe and add in your toppings in the morning.
OR
You could make a delectable version the night before and wake up a million times 
before you have to because you are just soooo excited to try it. Yeah... that happened.

Coming from a girl who used to despise everything having to do with oatmeal, that is impressive.
However, I learned the error of my ways. Who wants to actually just eat a bowl of milk & oats?
I sure don't. Not when I can make something even more delicious and nutritional!


Blueberry & Banana Pie Overnight Oats
Slightly adapted from Oh She Glows (a FABULOUS vegan blog. check it out!)

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups milk of choice; dairy or non
  • 1/3 cup agave nectar
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds (I found mine at Whole Foods)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cups blueberries
  • 2 bananas, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Directions:
  1. Mix in casserole dish (I used a 2 1/2 quart which left lots of room for stirring and mixing) and place in fridge overnight.

This recipe makes about 4-6 servings and will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days.

Now you have no excuse to not eat a healthy & filling breakfast every morning.
All you have to do is let the fridge do its magic work overnight. :)


In other news, did y'all watch Pretty Little Liars last night?!
My best friend and I were FREAKING OUT!
Next week's is going to be so scary. Whyyy do they have to involve a snake?

Enjoy your Wednesday!

xo, Jen
