Carob Banana Chia Vegan Overnight Oats – Phase 4

Good Morning.  It is beautiful in Colorado.  We did get some snow last week, just a dusting, and some rain which was needed.   The weekend was amazing with temps almost in the 70’s.   My daughter found this great website www.ohsheglows.com and I saw this recipe and thought I would add it to our blog.  So many of us are busy to get out the door and may not have time for a great breakfast.  Remember you should be eating breakfast if you are no longer in phase 2.  I am currently in phase 2 but will try this when I get done with phase 3.  Hope you all enjoy.  Make your breakfast the night before, no cooking involved and grab and go in the morning.   Have a wonderful week.  Terry

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Almond milk (or your choice – regular milk may be used if you are not vegan)
  • 1/3 cup regular oats
  • 1 tbsp carob powder (I buy it at bulk Barn)
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • Tiny pinch of kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tbsp walnuts, chopped (optional, or use other nuts)
  • 1 ripe banana, chopped
  • Maple syrup to drizzle, to taste (optional)

Directions: Mix the dry ingredients (oats, carob powder, chia seeds, optional walnuts, salt) in a medium sized bowl with a whisk. Now pour in the milk and pure vanilla extract, Whisk well until all clumps are gone. Finally, Stir in the chopped ripe banana. Place in the fridge for 1 hour or overnight. You can cover it, or leave it under covered. When ready, give it a good stir and enjoy. Drizzle a bit of maple syrup on top if you wish! You can get creative with different mix-ins too.
