Hope everyone had a fantastic week! I’m so excited for the long weekend. My cousin is coming down for a visit tonight and then Steve and I are just going to relax and enjoy each other’s company for the rest of the weekend (and hopefully go see the Dark Knight Rises!)

 

I have some high fives to hand out before I move on so let’s get the party started!

 

 

Karli, Vivette & Sally – All of these ladies get high fives this week for really pushing it in small group training! I love watching people progress and all 3 have gotten stronger over the past few weeks.

 

Christine – She gets a high five for picking up on the new moves in boot camp so quickly and never giving up

 

Team Oreo (Mya, Lindsay, Erin) – These ladies won my max rounds challenge last night at the gym! Go team!

 

 

I have a high five for myself but I’m saving it for a special announcement I have coming up in the next week!

 

 

On to the oats!

 

Last week I mentioned that I tried overnight oats for the first time. While I enjoyed them I haven’t made them since, I just love my hot oats so much! Today I thought I’d share some of the oat combinations I’ve been enjoying lately.

 

* My serving of oats is 1/2 – 2/3 cup dry which I simply cook in the microwave with water for a minute and a half but you can use whatever serving of oats you’d like and adjust as needed – I’m just throwing out some combo suggestions*

 

 

Apple Cinnamon Oats

  • Cooked oats
  • 1/4 cup apple unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/2 diced apple (my apples are huge)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Dash of nutmeg
  • Sweetener to taste

 

 

Maple Pecan Crunch

  • Cooked oats
  • 1 tbsp sugar free maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp toasted pecans
  • Optional: dates & granola

 

 

Chocolate Macaroon

  • Cooked oats
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder (if your protein powder isn’t chocolatey enough – which mine isn’t)
  • 2 tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut
  • Sweetener to taste
  • You may need to add some almond milk/water to thin it out

Coconut Banana Cream Pie

  • Cooked oats
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 2-3 tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 sliced banana (you can obviously use the whole thing if you want)
  • Almond/coconut milk to thin it out

 

 

All of the deliciousness – none of the guilt

I hope I gave you some ideas for some new oat creations! Oatmeal is such a quick easy breakfast and it is so versatile!

 

 

What are some of your favourite oatmeal combos?

    YOU GAVE ME SO MANY IDEAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ahhhhh I love you! I have banana cream pie oats on my food page on my blog! I will need to try yours though <3

    HAHA I laughed when you said that you love your hot oats and haven't had overnight oats since. I AM THE SAME WAY! Yeahhhhh overnight oats are good and all, but I rather have them during the day as a snack or something?? The morning I just want my warm oats 😉 Mmmmm I really think I will try that apple one tomorrow??

      I love it! It’s really good just using cocoa powder and some milk if you don’t have the chocolate protein powder too.
