I got an order from my friends at Truly Organic Foods and lately at work someone has been eating his version of refrigerator oatmeal that looks like he’s eating a jar of mayonaise…both things got me thinking of refrigerator oatmeal but of course I didn’t want to use yogurt because it’s not something I usually eat.
Truly Organic Foods is a local online store that carries a variety of products that I love and others that are fun to try for a change from my regular nutritarian staples. This order included some new products I’d never tried before like the dried banana…one taste and I’m sold. I may have to hide them!
It’s tasty and a yummy treat thanks to the dried bananas and cocoa. I love that flavour combination and since you make this the night before it’s the perfect grab and go breakfast if you’re pressed for time in the morning. I can’t wait to show this off in the office! It won’t look like a jar of mayonaise!
Here’s the recipe…
3/4c almond milk
1/2c organic rolled oats*
1/2 stevia packet
1 tsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp chia seeds
2 raw dried banana spears from Giddy YoYo* cut into tiny pieces
10 raw almonds chopped
1 tsp organic unsweetened cocoa nibs*
Put everything into a one pint mason jar and shake. Set in the refrigerator until morning and enjoy.
* I got these from Truly Organic Foods. The rolled oats are so big and delicious and the dried bananas taste like banana bread. I love that true banana flavour over fake banana chips any day and the cocoa nibs have a rich, cocoa flavour and are nice and big chunks…perfect for a little chocolate burst in a healthy package.
