    Classic Overnight Oats with Caramelized Bananas (and MCT oil!)

    Many don’t realize this but my blog was started based off of overnight oats. That’s right, good old overnight oats were the main reason I even started blogging or my sharing my food on Instagram.

    I would only share recipes that included oatmeal in it but overnight oats were my specialty. I have been prepping these for breakfast since I graduated college (aka one too many years ago). I used to eat them at my desk or on the bus on my commute to work. My co-workers looked at me like I was complete nuts and would tell me I am eating mush.

    To be honest, it totally used to affect me. I’d get so worked up that people would mock my food and had something to say. Fast forward to today and I cannot even believe I am sharing all of my food with YOU! By doing this it has truly made me so much more confident in what I eat and doesn’t have me seconding guessing my taste. If someone has something to say that isn’t kind, I politely giggle and move the beep on!

    Today I am shared my Classic Overnight Oats recipe with you, but it has a bit of a twist to it since I first started making it 6 years ago.

    We still use the basics of oatmeal (uncooked), nut milk, chia seeds, etc. But we have the addition of Organic MCT Oil in it. I recently tried Nutiva Organic MCT Oil that recently launched and it is so good. Jord absolutely loves using it in his coffee and smoothies. I prefer it in my overnight oats for a quick and easy way to sneak it in my eats. Continue Reading

    Easy and delicious Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Cup Overnight Oats packed with a secret ingredient!Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Cup Overnight Oats 

    Hi friends! I am writing this blog post a couple weeks in advanced (buzz kill, sorry) but the back end of August is seriously crazy for J and I. As a result, I need to get a head of my work!

    Last week you probably saw on Instagram that we moved out of our apartment in Chelsea to a new neighborhood in NYC. It is a pretty melancholy experience moving from one apartment to the next. Our apartment in Chelsea was our first home together. Small, yes but oh so special to us. It is where we moved in before we got married. It is where I started blogging and where J and I built a home together. Not to mention our apartment, no matter where it is, has a duel role as my office as well. Also known as “the kitchen”.

    Dark Chocolate Strawberry Overnight Oats

    Dark Chocolate Strawberry Overnight Oats for an easy and delicious plant-based breakfastIMG_8023-2

    I have a confession.

    Okay so it’s nothing too major, but I feel like I have been neglecting overnight oats hardcore. For those of you longtime readers (aka my Mom and J), you know overnight oats were the bread and butter of this blog. My oats are the main reason I even started blogging in the first place. I also chat about that more on Nicole Culver’s Blissful Bites podcast but I have been feeling a sense of guilt for not making them as much.

    I make them often but when it comes to new recipe ideas to share with you babes, I have been been neglecting them so I would love to hear from you if you miss overnight oats? Or do you like the grain-free goodies more? Or do you like a little bit of both? Continue Reading

    Chocolate Chip Espresso Overnight Oats

    So many of you may already know this but, I have never had a cup a coffee in my life.

    Yes, that is right. I do not drink coffee. I don’t drink any caffeine actually at all. I am so naturally energetic and going a million miles a minute that me on caffeine is just insane.

    I also have such an addictive personality that I know if I start drinking caffeine, I would become super dependent on it.

    Anyways a few weeks ago, I received an email from the team over at ORCA. ORCA is the maker of an insanely gorgeous and quality espresso and coffee from Italy. Jord is a huge fan of coffee and I obsess over the smell (seriously, I bought him a coffee machine just so I can smell it every morning). I was so intrigued by ORCA because I haven’t heard of it before. Continue Reading

    Banana Split Overnight Oats

    Vegan & gluten free-friendly Banana Split Overnight OatsBanana Split Overnight Oats by rachLmansfield

    I seriously love bananas. I truly believe that I love and appreciate them more than most people. I eat one every single day and love when they are freckled and a few days old. They are so sweet and delicious. Plus they are great for digestion and our stomachs. I am convinced I feel off on days I don’t eat one.

    I literally hide the bananas that I want to eat so Jord or my Dad or whoever I am with, doesn’t take them from me.

    Yes.. I am that nuts.

    Bananas are a staple in my recipes and especially when it comes to oatmeal. I recently made a PaleOatmeal and bananas were the base of it. Plus my endless love for banana bread is pretty intense right now. I am working on a few new recipes I can’t wait to share with you guys soon.

    So anyways, these Banana Split Overnight Oats..

    Don’t you just wish you could eat cookies all day? And no, I don’t mean Chips Ahoy. I’m talking quality, delicious, good-for-you cookies.

    One of my favorite parts of being a Food Blogger is trying and finding new products that I love. It is SO important to me to always stay authentic and only talk about products that I believe in and love. That’s why you see very limited branded posts on my Instagram and you see many of the same brands over and over again. People can see right through forced posts that have nothing to do with what you believe in. Since day one of blogging, I always said I would never work with a brand or post food that I wouldn’t eat. I am so proud to say that has remained true during my blogging journey so far.

    Now back to the COOKIES! And most importantly the Chocolate Cookie Dough Overnight Oats. Continue Reading
