Happy Monday! This is my first five day week this school year and I don’t know if I’m ready. I am still in denial over being back at work, I guess.
I knew that with the long week ahead, I wanted breakfast to be quick and easy, so I made overnight oats. Last night, using one of Dave’s nearly empty peanut butter jars (he eats the Skippy brand, I eat the fancy natural kinds!) as the vessel, I mixed:
- 1/3 cup rolled oats
- 1/3 cup Almond Breeze
- 1/3 cup plain fat free greek yogurt
- 1/3 cup fat free cottage cheese
- 1 chopped banana
- 1 tbsp. ground flax seed
- ~1 tbsp. almond butter (+ ~1 tsp. peanut butter that was leftover in the jar)
- vanilla extract
Served in my favorite Monopoly mug.
I can’t wait to find some canned pumpkin for my oatmeal. Once I can find it on store shelves, then it means that it really is fall!
