Mocha Coconut Old-Fashioned OverNight Oats (GF)




I combined my recipes for Chocolate Coconut Overnight Oats  and Mocha Overnight Oats to come up with this recipe.  I sprinkled extra coconut on top of the oatmeal.  

This is SOOOOOO good....this might be my new favorite overnight oats recipe !!!!  
  

Ingredients:
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats (I use Quaker oats)
3/4 to 1 cup almond milk
1/2 banana, mashed
1 Tbsp instant coffee
2 Tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (I use Hershey's)
1 tsp Chia Seeds (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1 tsp Ground Flaxseed (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 to 3 Tbsp peanut butter 
2 Tbsp brown sugar or maple syrup

Directions:
Put all the ingredients into a jar with tight fitting lid and shake until well combined.  I use an "old" 16-oz glass peanut butter jar.  Then refrigerate overnight or for a few nights.  I had mine sit in the fridge for 4 nights and it was delicious the morning I ate it for breakfast.

Pumpkin Pie Old Fashioned Overnight Oats (GF)






I LOVE making a few overnight oats at a time and leaving them in the fridge to have for breakfast through the week.

I decided to try a pumpkin one.  I used 2 Tbsp pumpkin puree - I personally liked this amount.  To me, this had a nice cinnamon flavor with a hint of pumpkin.




Ingredients:
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats (I use Quaker oats)
3/4 to 1 cup almond milk (I use 1 cup)
1/2 banana, mashed
1 tsp Chia Seeds (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1 tsp Ground Flaxseed (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground allspice
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp brown sugar or molasses
2 to 4 Tbsp canned pumpkin puree (depends on how pumpkiny you want it)
1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder (I use Hershey's)

Directions:
Put all the ingredients into a jar with tight fitting lid and shake until well combined.  I use an "old" 16-oz glass peanut butter jar.  Then refrigerate overnight or for a few nights.  I had mine sit in the fridge for 4 nights and it was delicious the morning I ate it for breakfast.

Coffee Banana Mousse (GF)




I wanted to modify this recipe to come up with a version made with bananas instead of tofu.  This is the result !!!  I'm not sure which I like better since I made the tofu version awhile ago !!!!

I found a down-side to making all this mousse -  I eat too much !!!  I can't stop eating it once I start !!!! 

I actually make the mousse and then leave it in the freezer for about a week before I take it out to eat it.  I think it has a better flavor - this gives it time for all the flavors to "blend together".

This was made with 1/2 cup of peanut butter:






Ingredients:
3 medium really ripe bananas, sliced
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 to 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (depending on desired thickness) 
2 tsp Coffee Extract  (I use OliveNation)
2 Tbsp instant coffee
2 oz vegan chocolate bar, broke into pieces (optional)

Directions:
Put everything in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.  

Pour into a glass jar with a lid or container with a lid.  Put in freezer to firm.  Store in fridge.


Estimated Nutritional Value per serving based on 4 servings:  Calories 205,  Total Fat 10.8g, Cholesterol 0mg,  Sodium 78mg, Carbs 24.4g, Fiber 3.9g, Sugars 12.5g, Protein 6.3g



I will give them a long, full life, and they will see how I can save.
