The traditional "Elvis" combines peanut butter, bananas and bacon... But anytime I'm mixing PB and bananas in any way, shape or form, I "Can't Help Falling in Love" with what I'm eating. Elvis sure had a good thing going.
These overnight oats get me "All Shook Up" on my higher carb days. If you and your family find yourselves with "Suspicious Minds" about overnight oats in general, these may change your mind. They made a great lunch, snack, or sweet treat!
Okay seriously though. These Elvis Oats are awesome! Here's how I make them:
1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats
1/2 cup your favorite non-dairy milk
Mix together with a pinch of salt and a few drops of liquid stevia. Refrigerate for at least a few hours, up to a few days! When ready to eat, top with
1 sliced banana
2 Tbls. natural crunchy peanut butter
about 30 Lily's sugar free dark chocolate baking chips
This guy is good with broccoli, but give him ALL the fruits and he's a happy camper. Like, when I give him his plate for a meal, he ALWAYS eats the fruit first!
We made some Cherry Lime Popsicles by blending the juice of two limes, a bag of frozen cherries, two tablespoons of maple syrup, and then thinned it out with some Spindrift lime sparkling water. Ours are a bit tart, so if you like them sweeter, you could add more maple syrup. I found the bags on Amazon HERE!
Cherries are super nutritious and anti-inflammatory. Limes are also full nutrients - they may improve immunity, reduce heart disease risk factors, prevent kidney stones, aid iron absorption, and promote healthy skin.
I feel good about feeding these to my kids! Let me know if you give them a try! XO
Food is fuel.
I love to cook and bake recipes that incorporate healthy whole foods and those nutritious macro and micronutrients into our daily diets. I also like to make treats though, because let's face it, everyone loves a good sweet now and then! My favorite part about cooking, though, is sharing my latest recipes with others. ENJOY! XO
