Only the Best Oatmeal

Why is it the best oatmeal? Because it’s quick, it’s easy, and you don’t have to cook it!

You have to prepare this the night before, but it’s SO simple. And when you wake up in the morning, you open the fridge and you’re ready to eat! So great šŸ™‚

You will need:

-1/3 cup of old fashioned oats
-1/3 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
-1 1/2 tablespoons of natural applesauce (no extra sugar added)
-1/2 tsp of vanilla extract (I usually add a tad more than 1/2 a tsp)
-1 tablespoon of chia seeds
-almonds (I usually just chop up the 100 calorie packs)
-2 tablespoons of peanut wonder spread or peanut butter

Start with 1/3 cup of oats in a bowl

Whole grain old fashioned oats. I buy them from Walmart! Cheap!

Add your 1/3 cup of almond milk

the BEST almond milk and HELLO only 30 calories per serving!

Now add the 2 TBSP of applesauce, 1/2 tsp of vanilla, and 1 TBSP of chia seeds.


Stir it up!

It will look like this:

Only the Best Oatmeal

Now all you do is pop that baby in the fridge overnight! You don’t need to cook it at all! The oats soak up the almond milk and the applesauce and creates a smooth, luscious, yummy oatmeal.

The next morning…

Soaked up goodness!

You can also heat this up in the microwave for about 30-45 seconds if you are not a fan of the cold (after you take it out in the morning)

Then, I add my chopped almonds

So good for you!

And then top it with peanut wonder! (This stuff is incredible! 85% less fat, tastes JUST like peanut butter!) I get this at MOM’s organic market. But I believe Whole Foods has it too.

One of my favorite finds

Finished product

I plop my peanut wonder on the side so I can scoop as I eat rather than mix it in

Happy eating…

XOXO with a Cherry On Top,

    I tried this and it was really good. I used almond butter instead of peanut butter, it has less sugar and fillers. I also used sliced almonds bc it’s easier on my teeth šŸ˜‰
