PB Coconut Almonds Overnight Oats

I love everything about this – it has peanut butter, coconut and almonds in one bowl. It takes 10 minutes to prepare tops, that includes taking a photo of it and uploading it online. Ha!

Kidding aside though, this power-packed bowl always keeps me full in the morning and that’s what’s important. I usually have busy mornings at work, meetings hour after hour and this bowl keeps me energized.

Tip:

I added in flax and chia seeds not just for the added texture but for the benefits my body gets from them too. You can add in a tablespoon of unsweetened carob chips to make it a bit more chocolate-y.

For a nut-free bowl, you can take the Almonds and Peanut Butter out and replace it with Sunflower Seed butter which is also great. Or overhaul it, add in Coconut Butter and make it a Coco-Banana mix! (Yummmm, thinking about it makes me want to make a bowl now).
