Happy Mother’s Day! Hope you all got to spend time with your mamas. As a gift, Jacob built me 3 raised garden boxes (2 of them pictured below).
I’m excited to get them into the ground and filled with dirt. Also, I have kale and cucumber beginning to sprout in my DIY egg shell seed starters! Hooray for 2 year old seeds to still grow!
Today is another Secret Recipe Club reveal day. This month was super fun for me. I was given Jennifer of Peanut Butter and Peppers! Jennifer is a blogger I’ve known since before Hunter was born. She even guest posted for me once he arrived. Jennifer loves food and shares so many yummy looking meals, snacks and treats. I seriously just want her to come and cook for me. Like every day. Personal chef????
Okay, it will probably be a no, so I guess I’ll make some food for myself. The recipe I chose as a no brainer – bircher muesli – AKA overnight oats!
With the warmer temps around here I’ve been eating less and less hot oats - and that makes me sad!
Soaking your raw rolled oats in liquid (yogurt, milk and juice) plumps them up and ‘cooks’ your oatmeal for you. No hot stove required.
Jennifer’s bircher muesli is a bit different than previous overnight oats I’ve made. Normally I go with banana and peanut butter, but here, the flavors are bright and fresh. OJ and pineapple juice + fresh shredded apple set the tone with natural sweetness. I went ahead and amped up the fruity flavors with a fig and orange zest Chobani bite.
Adapted from peanut butter and peppers
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 small apple, grated
- 1/4 cup juice (combo orange and pineapple juice)
- 3.5 oz fig and orange zest chobani bite (or plain yogurt)
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp raisins
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- Add all of the ingredients in a bowl; mix well. Cover and refrigerated for at least 8 hours.
And it’s all ready and waiting for you in the morning! So so yummy, thanks Jennifer!
Emily at Chobani was so sweet and sent me all four Chobani bite flavors to try. And try I have. Here are my order of favorites: raspberry with dark chocolate chunks, coffee with dark chocolate chunks, caramel with pineapple chunks, and lastly fig with orange zest. Obviously, I love me some chocolate!
