Peanut, banana and cacao refrigerated oats

I have started the new year trying to eat healthier and to try and work out 3-4 times a week. At the moment I'm doing well. But it's only the 10th January!

I really struggle eating breakfast for 3 reasons - 
I have to leave for work at 8am and have lots of things to do before leaving
I can't stomach anything heavy very early 
I also can't be bothered to faff about making something

These are probably the same excuse for you reading this too..
But wait I think I have the answer. Peanut, banana and cacao refrigerated oats.

It's healthy, quick and is all ready for you in the morning. Perfect

1/2 cup of oats 
1/2 cup of almond milk (you can use any milk you prefer)
1 Tbsp Cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
1 Tbsp Smooth Peanut butter (crunchy if you prefer) 
1 Tbsp honey 
1 chopped banana

1 Tsp Flax and Chia seeds 
Fruit to top and chopped dark chocolate to top 

This is the easy bit. Place the oats, almond milk, cacao powder, peanut butter, honey, flax seeds and banana in a plastic container and mix together. I don't add the banana at this point. I prefer them chopped up on top. Put in the fridge overnight. 

In the morning take them out of the fridge, top with fresh banana or if you want a cheeky treat some chopped dark chocolate. 

So there you go-  the easiest, tasiest and healthiest start to those early mornings.

Let me know how you get on.
Much love,
