CherryPie Overnight Oats!

Yep, it seems I'm on a bit of a cherry kick.  Basically because I need to use up the can of No Sugar Added Cherry Pie Filling I opened the other night.  But it works out because I like cherry (sometimes).  I decided to try making overnight oats.  I've seen the recipes floating all over the internet but hadn't tried it.  I used Chia Seeds (high in fiber) and Flax Seeds (contains Omega-3 Fatty Acids).  I also added protein powder (because if you know me or read my blog, I like a high protein breakfast - and I like to balance carbs with fiber and protein)....

This is super simple - You just mix all the ingredients together and stick it in the fridge overnight!  How easy is that?

1/3 cup Quick Oats
1/2 tbsp flax seeds
1/2 tbsp chia seeds
1/3 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
1/3 cup no sugar added cherry pie filling
1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
1/3 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1 packet truvia

Combine all ingredients in a jar or bowl - cover.  Refrigerate overnight.  Try to use a container that allows a little room for expansion (as in there is a bit of room between the lid and the top of the oats) as the chia seeds expand when they absorb water).  Dig in when you get up!!

**Because it has 32g net carbs, this is a perfect pre- or post-workout snack/meal!

I'm going to play around with flavors - will post more ideas this week!! :)
