Before I tell you all about some amazing Apple Cinnamon Peanut Butter Overnight Oats I want to fill you in on my quick trip to NY. I am posting a little late today because I got back super late last night. I was there just 22 hours, but it was so much fun. The authors, Shalane Flanagan and Elyse Kopecky, of Run Fast. Eat Slow were at the NYC Marathon Expo and I got to meet them! I was so excited that I got flustered and was very awkward and didn’t know what to say in the 30 seconds I had to talk to them. They were very kind. I am a huge fan of these beautiful ladies and highly recommend their book. My good friend let me stay with her in her and her husband and their lovely new home. I enjoyed staying with them so much.
After stopping by the NYC Marathon Expo to meet Shalane and Elyse, we walked around the city a bit. It was a beautiful day. We went to the 911 Memorial. I had never been. The last time I was at the site was April 2002 and there was just a big crater. The memorial is beautifully done and I was glad to be able to see it and pay my respects to all the people that tragically lost their life on that historical day.
As promised I have a great oatmeal recipe for you. It is called Apple Cinnamon Peanut Butter Overnight Oats. This recipe is a perfect grab and go breakfast in the morning. It has fiber and healthy fats to keep you full and tastes amazing. First you start with 1/2 old fashion oats.
Next you add 1/2 milk of choice. I used low fat lactose free cows milk since this is what we keep in the house. My fiance is sensitive to lactose so this keeps everyone tummy happy. I love the protein and calcium that cows milk has.
Next add 2 Tbsp whole milk yogurt. Or any yogurt of choice. I like whole milk yogurt because the healthy fat keeps me full longer. Vanilla yogurt will make this recipe a little sweeter for those of you that don’t like the no sugar added recipe.
Next add some cinnamon, about 1/2 tsp.
Then add a heaping Tbsp of peanut butter. I use a salted creamy organic peanut butter.
Add it right on top
And mix it in.
Get ready to add some apple
Chop the apple into bite size pieces.
Add some to mix in.
Then add some more on top and refrigerate overnight or at least 4 hours.
In the morning it is all ready to eat! I eat these cold but you could warm them up in the microwave for 45 seconds – 1 minute on high. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do! This recipe is for one serving but can easily be scaled up to feed more people. Or, you can make a bunch Sunday night and have breakfast for the week since these will keep about 4 days in the refrigerator.
