Banana Maple Chia Overnight Oats

Overnights are my new favorite thing these days! Eating healthy is also a favorite of mine too. I run at least 3 miles everyday right when I wake up..I’ve noticed it really keeps me energized and refreshed all throughout the day. It also motivates me to fuel┬ámy body with fresh and nutritious foods throughout the day. Since breakfast is such a quick ‘grab-n-go’ kinda thing for me, these oats make it easy to eat healthy on the run. There is tons of fiber to keep ya feeling full until lunch–there is also NO sugar, so these little oats are naturally sweet ­čÖé
I also love mason jars and this is one of the many reasons why. They are just so cute and convenient. If you don’t have mason jars you could also use simple containers or even bowls.

Ingredients:
1 cup of uncooked oats
2 Tbsp chia seeds
1 cup almond milk
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp sugar free maple syrup
1/2 banana; sliced

Steps:
1. Combine all ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon. Spoon oatmeal into mason jars and top with favorite fruit and/or nuts. Let sit overnight in fridge and enjoy the next morning!

Peanut Butter Stuffed French Toast

image

I came up with this creation today when I was debating on whether or not to have a piece of toast with peanut butter or to make french toast for breakfast..so why not combine the two?!

Yield: 4

Ingredients:
4 pieces of bread (I used whole wheat and removed the crust)
2 egg whites
1 whole egg
2 Tbsp peanut butter
2 Tbsp almond milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp buter
2 tsp (or more!) powdered sugar
3 Tbsp maple syrup

Steps:
1. Heat a large skillet on medium heat. In a medium bowl, beat eggs, almond milk, vanilla, and cinnamon. With a butter knife, spread each piece of bread with peanut butter. With a fork, poke bread and place in egg mixture for 20 seconds on each side until well coated. Butter skillet and place each piece of bread to cook for 3 minutes on each side. Coat with maple syrup and sprinkle with powdered sugar!
