So you know how I mentioned in my WIAW post that I was a little “fond” of my newest combo of dates and sunflower seed butter? Well, what I failed to disclose is that me and SSSB (“Studley Sunflower Seed Butter) have been “talking” for a while.
I was a little nervous, but I agreed to meet him for breakfast this morning…which gave me a good reason to break out the new hair straightener that
Santa I just got me!
Ok, so I was a teeeensy bit excited…
In all his banana slice/carob chip glory!
Isn’t he breathtaking?
You think he’s gotten any work done?
Eh, I digress…
I could feel the chemistry from the very beginning…
But I just closed my eyes and
jumped in took a bite…
(Ok, ok…so my eyes were open!) but then I knew for sure…
Sadly my romance was short-lived.
That is, until his twin brother showed up!
Banana Carob Chip Oats (In a Jar):
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 Tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 1/2 Tablespoons nutritional yeast (trust me on this one!*)
- 1 small banana, sliced
- 1/2-1 Tablespoon carob chips
- 1 near-empty SSB jar
1. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine oats, milk, water, and extract and cook on high for 3-4 minutes, stirring halfway through.
2. Stir in nutritional yeast and chia seeds and allow 2-3 minutes to thicken.
3. Transfer to waning nut butter jar, layering with banana slices and carob chips.
4. Prepare to swoon!
What’s the last breakfast that made you swoon?
Have you ever tried OIAJ?
OIAJ is fabulous. I’ve gotten some funny looks when eating in public though hehe. SSB (which is highly addicting) and nooch actualllly sounds pretty good!
Heather…you crack me up! Love you, girl!!
Is nooch good in the oats?? I’ve seen this combo around a lot lately, and I haven’t been to Whole Foods in a while to get another bag of NY but I need to after seeing this! And ahhh, Sunflower Seed Butter. How I love you so!
VERY good indeed! And it pairs PERFECTLY with the SSB! Try the combo on sweet potato fries! Deeeelicious!i
I still havent tried SFSB! eee! It looks/sounds amazeballs sooo… you know i’ll probably have to pick up a jar =) Your hair looks ROCKIN! I still can’t get mine that fabulously straight <3
Nutritional yeast is an interesting addition – but I trust your tastebuds… will give it a go!
Loooove the hair! You’re gawwwwgeous!
Gah….sunflower seed butter. I haven’t had it in wayyyyy too long – but I’d agree. Definitely the best nut/seed butter out there :]
I actually haven’t ever had OIAJ. I know, I know, don’t yell at me 😉 IN my defense, I’m not much of an oats person. (which is only to be met with more shock, I’m sure, so I’m not sure why I’m using that to defend myself, lol) BUT! I love cereal in a jar. Mmmm!
Hahha you’re too funny 🙂
I loveee sunflower seed butter. Your oats in a jar looks fab! and so do you!
OIAJ is awesome! I have not had OIAJ for a long time, but I think my White Chocolate WOnderful PB is almost gone ; )
You are too cute, love the hair, I like it curly and straight!
I love to date my food! All always fall for the bad guys, so lately I have been sticking to my chocolate. Dark and intense, just like I love them 😀
Haha! Love it!
gushhh, y’all are the cutest couple ever 🙂 are you gonna get mawwwwwwied?! 😉
I have been having a really hot and heavy love affair with pistachio butter as of late. I’m infatuated and me thinks the feeling is mutual. <3
Haha! Love you girl!
Pistachio butter?!? Ohhhh, I’m so jealous!
you are hilarious! I love this post and I LOVE this recipe! mmmmmm
can’t wait til my sunflower seed butter jar is almost empty…….
You *may* have lost me at the nutritional yeast. Every time I go to the grocery store I spend 2 full minutes to staring at the sunflower butter, wondering if it’s worth it to buy some. I guess you just answered my question!
Definitely worth it!! And I promise you…SSB and nooch…deeeeelicious! First time I ever tried the combo was on sweet potato fries and I loved it!
OIAJ are like magic…something so simple yet so amazingly decadent! That sounds like an amazing combination!
First of all – love your blog. I’m a frequent visitor although I haven’t ever commented before now. What a clever post!! I have to say, I truly SWOON over my PB&J Overnight Oats. Yowza… Can’t get enough. In fact, since I had a (super delicious) omelet this morning, I’ll be cooling off with some cold and creamy O.Os for lunch and I absolutely can’t wait!!!!
Thanks Alex! I’m so glad you left a comment! I love when loyal readers “de-lurk”! 😉
Ohhhh yes, nothing like a cool bowl of OO’s on a hot summer day…and PB&J oats? Right up my alley!
Love your hair! Oat bran apple cinnamon muffin slathered in PB had me in a food-gasm the other day!
Oh my gosh, who knew those words could have such an affect on my central nervous system! I’m drooling! Haha!
Not sure if you’re using a macbook camera for these pictures, but if you are, while looking at the picture, you can hold the command key, and F and it flips the photo so things aren’t backwards. I just noticed coffee was backwards in a picture and I’m feeling especially nerdy commenting on this..
Your hair looks awesome straightened – You are so pretty.
I am waiting for my jar to be empty enough so I can have OIAJ…… Waiting Impatiently Patiently..
Oops I meant to strike the impatiently but it didn’t work….LOL
Haha! Thanks girl! And good luck with the waiting…I am so NOT a patient person!
The last bfast that made me swoon was an amazing breakfast pizza I made a lil while ago, but breakfast has really been disappointing me lately! It was my favorite meal for ages, but lately it has left so much to be desired. I dont know whats going on. Help?
I went through a little breakfast funk myself recently. I kept trying different things with my bowl of oats (because I THOUGHT that’s what I wanted) but kept getting so disappointed so I gave up the oats and moved on to other things. The first day I had a yogurt parfait…disappointment…but then the second day I had French toast (with TONS of cinnamon!) and life made sense again! Haha! I guess it’s really just about trying to figure out what it is your body is craving. And then sometimes when I’m just at a complete loss for ideas, I just do a little blog-stalking until I find something that instantly makes me drool! 😉 Haha!
oh my gosh. it’s seriously taking all my will power not to dive into my kitchen after seeing that breakfast. looks incredible!!
hahaha you crack me up. I was thinking you had a good date story for us at first. But hey, sunflower butter breakfast date is kinda preferable anyway (at least in my book!) hehee
haha..this post totally cracked me up! I love how you straightened your hair for your breakfast date 😉
I thought your blog was cute! I might have to try that! Yummy!
Ha ha! I’m just now getting a chance to catch up on some posts, this was TOO funny!!
I just bought my very first jar of sunflower seed butter! I hope its date worthy 😉
Oh oh ohhhhhhhh! Let me know what you think!! If you guys get serious, I totally want the recognition! 😉
I have an empty sunflower seed butta jar waiting to be used as we speak. Giving this one a try ASAP 🙂 Can’t wait to make creative combos with you post- run 🙂
Woo hoo!! You’ll LOVE it!
