It seems like Oats in a Jar are the newest trend with food recently. Well I’m all for it! They’re very nourishing, and simple to make. All you need is a few ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry and fridge.
The best thing about having oats for breakfast is that they’re super high in fibre, which means you’ll stay fuller longer! They slowly release energy into your system, therefore making them a great satisfying way to start your day! One cup of oats provides 6 g of protein and 4 g of fibre. Among all grains, oats have the highest proportion of soluble fibre. This gel-like fibre travels through your intestinal tract and helps to trap substances associated with high blood cholesterol. Studies show that people with high blood cholesterol who eat just 3 g of soluble fibre per day can reduce their total cholesterol by 8% to 23%. Crazy eh?
Here’s what you’ll need for your homemade Oats in a Jar!
12-16 oz Mason Jar (or jar with a sealable lid)
1 Cup Almond Milk (unsweetened vanilla, Blue Diamond Brand)
½ Cup Gluten Free Oats (Bob’s Red Mill is the BEST)
¼ Cacao Nibs (RAW)
1 Tbsp Cacao Powder (RAW)
2 tbsp Coconut Sugar (or sucanat or agave)
½ Mashed Banana
- Put all ingredients in a mason jar, screw on the lid
- Shake until all ingredients are combined
- Refrigerate overnight
- Add more milk if necessary 🙂
- Enjoy your delicious breakfast!
My perfect breakfast! Glad you’re with me to keep me healthy on our team! 🙂
