Spring break has ended and we enjoyed some time away at the 100 Acre Log Cabin, in Morgantown, IN, not too far from Nashville, IN. We love to disconnect for a while to play games, talk, and spend a little quality time together.
We ended up packing most of our food so that we could stay in and relax with our good friends that came along with us. I have been prepping my weekly oatmeal bowls for some time now, but recently switched to using mason jars. This was a fantastic idea for this trip! This may work well when I travel for my races too.
One of the oatmeal mixes was French Toast Oats. It is SO good, that I am sharing it. I located this recipe on Pinterest at Smart Little Cookie
I have made a few minor changes (noted in parentheses below) and gave them a new name, "Log Cabin" Overnight Oats. :) You may find the consistency a little thick (I compare it to cookie dough so I like it) but you could always heat it up and add a little more almond milk to thin it out. Simply add all of the ingredients to a 10oz mason jar and let it sit overnight. Enjoy!
LOG CABIN OVERNIGHT OATS
1 cup quick cut oats (old fashioned oats)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (vanilla flavored Vega Protein & Greens)
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons maple syrup ( 1/4 cup fresh fruit)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup almond milk (unsweetened vanilla)
whipped cream for topping (none)
Everyday Oatmeal Bowls
This one is for my clients who have asked about my everyday oatmeal bowls.
Fill a few bowls for the week with the following and let sit. In the morning, heat up for 2 minutes, add unsweetened vanilla almond milk to taste. If I am really hungry or have had a good morning training session, I will add 1T of Vega Protein Powder when I add the almond milk.
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup of water
1/4 c of blueberries, I also like peaches, mangos, strawberries, or a mix
1 T flaxseed
A LOT of ground cinnamon :)
