Update: This recipe has been updated on 3/17/14. I made this oatmeal for St. Patrick’s Day and took much better pictures! (The ones up before this were embarrassing and totally unappetizing looking haha.) Even though I updated the pictures, the rest of the post has not been updated, so the oatmeal recipes below are only my first few. Click here to see ALL my oat recipes!
Here’s another overnight oats recipe! My other overnight recipes so far include:
Today’s recipe includes leafy greens, which is a great way to start your day!
This recipe was adapted from Oh She Glows:
- 3/4 cup almond milk
- About 1 cup spinach or kale
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 cup GF rolled oats
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 banana
- Optional: sweetener, to taste
- In a blender, blend together spinach and almond milk until smooth.
- In a glass jar (or cereal bowl), combine the chia seeds, oats, and cinnamon.
- Pour the spinach and milk mixture on top and stir until well combined.
- Mash half the banana with a fork and stir it into the oatmeal mixture. Slice the other half of the banana and add it to the oats.
- Place in the fridge overnight. In the morning, stir and add optional sweetener and any desired topping such as nut butter, granola, coconut, fruit, etc. and serve cold.
I added the other half of the sliced banana to mine in the morning to keep it as fresh as possible and added crushed peanuts!
This is what the oats looked like before adding banana slices and peanuts!
I love how brightly green this breakfast becomes without any artificial colors! And the best part is you get a serving of vegetables first thing in the morning and you can’t even taste them, mostly just banana!
