Almond Butter Banana Overnight Oats! Prep everything the night before and wake up to this delicious and nutritious breakfast! Have you tried overnight oats yet? If not, what are you waiting for?
I’ll admit it. Mornings at my house are usually chaotic. Unless I have prepped things the night before, I am running around with my head cut off.
My kids are not morning people so it’s impossible getting them up and out of bed. Sometimes, I get lucky and there’s something exciting going on at school so they are excited and jump out of bed themselves but it’s rare.
I believe breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This is the chance we get as parents to fuel our kids and prepare them for the day ahead.
That’s why I choose to fuel my family with nutritious and delicious overnight oats! And when paired with an 8 oz. glass of milk, my kids get an additional 8 grams of protein! Just what they need to help start their day strong!
Have you guys tried overnight oats yet? For busy parents, this is a dream because you prep everything the night before, refrigerate it and it’s ready to go the next morning!
