I am sure you have noticed from past posts that I love peanut butter and I love oatmeal. It is a great, filling dish for breakfast and always hits the spot. Awhile back I saw a recipe for Overnight Oats that you made the night before (obviously!) and then you ate them cold in the morning. I put off trying this recipe for quite some time because I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy cold oatmeal. Well, guess what, I love it. I can see it being such a great addition to our summer breakfast menu especially for those really HOT days. Or divide it up and it would be a good morning snack as well. I did find that I need to add something crunchy to the top. I think this is probably a preference thing. To this recipe you could add chopped peanuts or mini chocolate chips. A key ingredient to this recipe is the chia seeds, they help the oats to thicken. I buy mine at Trader Joe’s but you can find them in most grocery stores or health food stores. You can also use them in smoothies, regular oatmeal or even cookies. They are a great source of fiber. This recipe makes 1 large serving.
