Mornings can be hectic, but with school starting up and jobs to attend, things can start to become crazier than usual! That’s why we love overnight recipes–all you have to do is spend 5 minutes prepping the night before, and when you wake up the next morning, everything is already done and ready to eat. No mess, no hassle, no stress…that’s how we like our mornings! But convenience isn’t all we are worried about when it comes to breakfast; we want to make sure we are fueling our bodies with the right amount of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. Our Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats provide all of that and more, as it’s filled with wholesome ingredients such as greek yogurt, bananas, peanut butter, whole grain oats, and fresh fruit. The peanut butter is a great way to add nutritional benefits, as a 2 tablespoon serving provides you with 8 grams of protein (1)! Peanuts can also provide antioxidants, and may be associated with a lower risk for chronic degenerative diseases (2). So the next time you find yourself having a busy week, go ahead and make breakfast ahead of time! It will save on stress, while still filling your body with the nutrients it needs.
