Moms Eat Groats
And dads eat groats
And little lambs eat ivy...
When I was putting together breakfast for me and the hubs last night I was totally stoked about the outcome for me, but not sure how he would like it. I have eaten and liked overnight oats before, but this was a little different and I wasn't sure Scott would like it.
First off it involved groats which sounds a little too close to "gross". I was ambitious though and bought two bags of whole oats (which is all groats are, by the way). I conveniently had 2 perfect sized jars in the pantry.
I used Food Babe's recipe for Parfait Porridge but subbed in some Decadent Blend chia and flax seed with cocoa and coconut because I did not have any plain chia seeds.
The result was yummy!!
Before eating my parfait, I imagined I would want to heat it up and add butter and salt, but I just stirred it up and enjoyed it at my desk at work. The groats were chewy and the parfait was very satisfying. It was so good that I made more tonight for us. Emi was intrigued and even made up her own "parfait jar".
