Peanut Butter Banana Buckwheat Overnight Oats

22 Mar

As a result of yesterday’s post on our Dad’s birthday and the upcoming anniversary of his death we feel so much love from our blog community. We wanted to thank everyone who commented or liked our post. Sharing our dad’s story is always hard, but something we also love to do. We want others to know just how much of a wonderful father, husband, and friend he was. Thanks for letting us share his love for life with ya’ll.

Now we must move on to a much brighter, happier topic.
What may that be?
Only our favorite meal of the day.
BREAKFAST.

We want to know, do you ever have a hard time deciding what to have for breakfast? I mean there are so many options. You have your choice of oatmeal, or maybe a yogurt parfait, a smoothie, a large bowl of cereal, some whole-wheat waffles, a large stack of banana pancakes, and the list continues.

You see we have this slight problem. We can never really decide which to have. We go through these stages where we are completely obsessed with one of the above and have it every single morning until we are done with it and ready to move onto something else. Right now, it is an equal mix between oatmeal and a Greek yogurt parfait.

So we thought to ourselves, why not combine the two into a yogurt oatmeal breakfast parfait?

Yup.
Genius.

Although we cannot take credit for this fabulous creation we are about to disclose to you. We give all the credit to Kylie over at immaeatthat.com! Her posts have recently become one of our favorite to check out for our own meal inspiration. We searched something that involved both oatmeal and Greek yogurt and this is what we found. Here’s our own personal take on her original idea.

Peanut Butter Banana Buckwheat Overnight Oats

Ingredients:
3 Tbsp. oats
2 Tbsp. buckwheat groats
1 small container of Oiko’s blueberry Greek yogurt

  2. In the morning take it out of the refrigerator and top it with blueberry flax granola and PB2. Enjoy cold.
