Recipe Breakdown:

PB Cup Overnight Oats

This recipe is so simple which makes it the best breakfast to throw together the night before. You need oatmeal, milk of choice, Lifeway Kefir, chocolate chips, cocoa powder, peanut butter, chia seeds, and a little honey. You combine the above ingredients into a bowl, mix together, add to a jar, and refrigerate overnight.

The next morning, remove from the fridge and enjoy! The best part of this recipe is how creamy it gets from the Lifeway Kefir added in. It not only makes the texture amazing, it adds protein and probiotics into the recipe.

Why Probiotics are Important:

I’ve mentioned probiotics in this post and wanted to provide some insight on why I believe they’re important. I love eating foods that are rich in probiotics, like this Lifeway Kefir is. Probiotics are microorganisms that help improve our gut health. I’ll leave the science explanation to the experts but basically when you eat foods high in probiotics, you’re helping get that good bacteria in your gut. Gut health is so essential to overall health. It seems like every week there’s a new study coming out about gut health being connected to something. Keeping your gut healthy will help your digestion, your immune system, and seriously so many other things that are being discovered constantly!

How I Add Probiotics Into My Diet:

You can get probiotics in a variety of forms but an easy way is adding them into your diet. I love adding Lifeway Kefir into smoothies, oatmeal, baked goods because it’s full of protein + full of probiotics. You can find it here. It’s 99% lactose-free, gluten-free, and made with all natural, non-GMO ingredients.  A serving has 11 grams of protein + it has 12 live strands of probiotics. They have a ton of delicious flavors but I think the plain one because it doesn’t have any added sugar.

Topping Ideas:

I added some chocolate chips on top of my oats and a little more nut butter on top too. You can never go wrong with some more chocolate chips! Hope you enjoy PB Cup Overnight Oatmeal.
