I can’t believe I didn’t think of this. There were some mornings where I would struggle to fix breakfast for myself. Normally my go-to was oatmeal. I love oatmeal but sometimes making it in the morning isn’t possible for a new mom. These overnight oats are super easy. Combine the ingredients the night before and put in fridge to be ready in the morning. As a breastfeeding mama, I’m always looking for foods that will make sure I have enough milk and the best nutrients for my baby. Oats are highly recommended for moms to boost their milk supply. It also has properties that help lower cholesterol and maintain a healthy blood pressure. Oatmeal is also a comfort food. It may help mamas to help relax, which always helps the milk let-down process.

- 1/3 c. rolled oats
- 1/2 Tbsp. chia seeds
- 1/2 banana mashed
- 1/2 c. almond milk
- Pinch of ground cinnamon
Optional: Garnish with nuts, dried fruit, or nut butter for added nutritional punch!
Mash banana with a fork in a mason jar with a seal so you can refrigerate overnight. Add all dry ingredients and mix. Add almond milk and stir until well blended.
Cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, remove from the fridge and stir, adding more milk if desired. Garnish as desired.
