Every morning my oldest reminds me how famished he is as soon as he gets out of bed. 

A couple of months ago I started making him overnight oats so that he could go straight to the refrigerator and serve himself an amazing breakfast all by himself.

Parents...this is a beautiful thing.

After going on several camping and road trips over the summer we got out of the habit of making overnight oats plus I wasn't really satisfied with the recipe I had been making. 

Last night, before bed, I put together what might be my favorite bowl of oats yet.

It's creamy and rich and loaded in protein and good fats (ain't nobody got time for low-fat breakfasts). 

Rather than adding yogurt like usual, I decided to go with kefir as it has a much creamier texture along with 3x more beneficial bacteria.

Additionally, I added a scoop of collage peptides to increase the protein factor and health benefits for hair, skin, nails and joints. 

The chia seeds (along with the oats) provide a lovely dose of fiber to keep your digestion running smooth and the hemp seeds reduce inflammation in the body via their omega-3-fatty acid profile. 

Enjoy every bite knowing you have zero breakfast to cook or clean up and are nourishing every cell in your body with real, whole foods.

Overnight Blueberry Kefir Oats 

1/2 cup rolled oats
1 T collagen peptides
1 T hemp seeds
1 T chia seeds
3/4 T pure maple syrup
1/4 cup frozen blueberries
1/3 cup full-fat plain kefir
1/2 cup milk of choice (I use Malk almond milk or my homemade cashew milk)

**Place ingredients in a pint-sized mason jar in the order listed....(start with oats, end with milk). Put a lid on the jar and place in refrigerator overnight. 

The next morning, either eat straight from the jar or pour into a bowl. Top with a bit of cinnamon for extra goodness.
