The power of peanut butter, the satisfying fullness from oats, the Omega-3s from chia seeds. Overnight oatmeal is what we all look forward to when the summer mornings are hot and the sweat starts early.
I cannot lie, as much as I hate finishing a jar of Bliss Nut Butter, I love eating my oats from the jar. Bonus if I remember to make the oats the night before, because that means they are cold! Yes, just like how I take my coffee in the summer, I will gladly take my oats equally as chilled.
Let’s talk about chia seeds, the secret addition to both this recipe and some Bliss Nut Butter products that has me swooning.
Chia Seeds contain all those heart healthy omega-3s that reduce inflammation. They also provide an antioxidant punch similar to blueberries and the correct calcium to magnesium ratio ideal for the skeletal and nervous system. Just 2 tablespoons of chia seeds provide 98 calories of energy and 13% of your daily calcium. They are also high in fiber to help the digestive system out a bit.
I simply love the way they gel up and thicken whatever I am making. As a lover of thick smoothies, banana bowls and oats, adding chia seeds is a welcome addition to my meals.
