Is it just me or do you get a little bit nostalgic about cereal? I recently stumbled on boxes of Weetabix at my local grocery store and maybe I haven't been looking but I feel like Weetabix isn't as common in the U.S, but it was a staple in my house growing up between time in Ireland and Canada. I have clear and vivid memories of early mornings with my Dad before he went to work. He was an up at dawn kind of guy and I would get up with him before he went to work and he would make me 2 biscuits of Weetabix with warm milk and a sprinkling of sugar before he went off to work in the cold Alberta winters.
So I grabbed a box to have a breakfast I hadn't enjoyed in a very long time and began to think about recipes. Overnight oats are rightfully popular for their versatility, flavor, nutrition value and convenience for sure so I began to think about a little something different and made some overnight Weetabix. They are just as simple and easy to make. Store them in a jar, layer with yogurt and fruit and you can have a healthy, delicious breakfast on the go.
Here's what you'll need to get going:
-2 Weetabix biscuits
-1 TBS chia seeds
-1 TBS flax seeds
-1 TBS peanut butter and more to drizzle
-1 TBS maple syrup
-3/4 cup vanilla almond milk
-1/2 banana (sliced)
-3/4 cup Greek Yogurt ( I used plain but you can substitute your flavor of choice here)
-1 TBS chocolate chips
Place the 2 Weetabix biscuits, chia seeds, flax seeds and 1 TBS of peanut butter in a jar or container that you can cover and store the cereal in over night. Pour the almond milk over the mixture and mix together/break up the biscuits with all of the ingredients. Once mixed together, cover and store overnight in the fridge. In the morning, remove from the fridge and layer with the yogurt and banana slices. Drizzle some additional peanut butter and sprinkle chocolate chips. Breakfast is done!
Have a great Monday!
