Another overnight oats recipe. YES. YES. YES.
So here's the dealio: It's def January. Christmas break is definitely but a faint memory now and college has resumed in full swing. This means that I'm back to counting the hours of sleep that I get in a week total on my fingers and toes. This also means that my hair practically lives in a questionable bun pretty much everyday except the rare Saturday when I make an attempt to look human. Oh, and this also means that long pleasant mornings spent in the kitchen wearing my fuzzy slippers and flipping pancakes just ain't happening for a while. Nope. *sobs*
Safe to say, PB Chocolate Chip Overnight Oats have been helping a girl out. A WHOLE lot.
As I complete the last little stretch of prerequisites needed before I start nursing school (eeeeeek!!!!), I've just accepted that my mornings from here on out are gonna be a little more hectic than I would have dreamed. However, I literally wouldn't change it for the world because if bare minimal sleep means that in the near future I'll be a pediatric nurse practitioner, improving children's lives then COUNT ME IN. No sleep team over here, hollaaaaaa.
Y'all, I'm seriously SO excited the more that I think about my future. I know that there is still quite a while to go but that's not holding me back from obnoxiously shrieking in excitement every chance I get. It's like all of the hard work and the endless emotionally unstable trips to Starbucks will all pay off one day and I JUST CAN'T WAIT!
But enough about me and back to these mason jars of overnight YUM. For anyone that hasn't had a chance to try out overnight oats, I HIGHLY recommend them. They are so convenient, super customizable and fit perfectly into those hectic weeks where even a slice of toast is simply too time consuming.
Oh and of course, once again I had to bust out my all time low-cal fave: PB Fit Powder. I honestly can't rave enough about this wonderful substitution that has been a loyal lifesaver for a peanut butter lover like myself.
To make things look a little "fancy schmancy", I prepared the chocolate and peanut butter portions separately and then layered them the next day. However; if you wish to just mix all of the ingredients together the night before, you'll still have a mason jar of chocolaty, peanut buttery greatness all the same!
