An apple a day keeps the doctor away!
Rolled oats taste quite amazing with a number of flavors, but peanut butter is one of our favorites.
And what can we make out of this flavor combo?
Oh the possibilities are endless!
Peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.
Peanut Butter oat energy bars.
Peanut butter oat cookie dough bites.
Peanut butter stirred into a hot bowl of oatmeal and topped with dried tart cherries.
But in fall, we move toward seasonal fruits – apples, pears, and pomegranates – and use them as the star players in many of our recipes.
Breakfast is Queen!
As lovers of all things breakfast, our inspiration for this recipe came from our Much Ado About Muesli recipe from our cookbook, “No Excuses! 50 Healthy Ways to ROCK Breakfast!”
Muesli is a version of overnight oats. Search the term “overnight oats” in your search engine and you will come up with hundreds of recipes.
We’re sure that most of them taste pretty good. But of course, we like ours best 😉
The beauty of overnight oats is that you can make a bunch of them at once and have them ready to eat for the whole week! There’s no excuse NOT to eat breakfast! As the oats sit in the peanut butter and almond milk overnight, they absorb the liquid and get nice and soft and chewy.
Our overnight oats are this season’s new comfort food.
When you eat it, you will feel the warmth of the cinnamon fill your body with joy. The textures of the creamy peanut butter contrasting with the crunchy chia seeds will intrigue your mind. And the sweetness of the sauteed cinnamon apples will make your spirit sing.
And then you will say, “Thank you, may I please have another” 😉
Sure thing. Keep ’em coming!
