Maca and Peanut Butter Overnight Oats
It's no secret that peanut butter is one of my favourite foods. In fact, it was a few years ago that I kept a journal to gather some insight into my eating habits and realised I turned to a jar of PB when I was feeling angry or stressed! I tell you, this stuff, it brings comfort! (nb: I am not advocating for eating for comfort, obviously we should process those tricky feelings, not drown them in a jar of something delish - but sometimes, it can be entirely appropriate ;-) ).
Now, what do you think happens when you combine peanut butter with the malty deliciousness of my 3-blend maca powder, oats and banana? A taste sensation that's what!
This breakfast recipe is such a good start to your day - highly nutritious and super simple with the right fuel to sustain you through to lunch time. Make it and report back, please - I'd love to know what you think!
Oh and, this recipe is probably best made the night before - but if you've an hour up your sleeve to let it sit, that will do just fine.
2 tsp maca powder
1 cup oats
1 cup almond (or coconut) milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 heaped tbs chia seeds
2 tsp honey
2 tsp unflavoured marine collagen powder (optional)
1 small banana (sliced)
1 tbs cacao nibs
2 tbs crunchy peanut butter
In a bowl or two small jars, mix the almond (or coconut) milk, oats, chia seeds, honey, vanilla, collagen (if using) and maca powder. Leave to stand in the fridge for at least 60 minutes, ideally overnight.
In the morning, top with peanut butter, cacao nibs and sliced banana and devour!
