Where my terrible cooks at?

You know, those of us who can't make a G-darn thing without sending up a Google SOS, "how to counteract lemon flavor?" (you add baking soda, btw)

Well, if you're anything like me, I need easy when it comes to baking/cooking.  And I mean really easy. 

So, as I was looking for recipes for something to keep around the house this weekend, I came across one so fool-proof that even I couldn't screw it up.  Well, after I messed up an entire batch of Vital Proteins Collagen Sports Greens Post-Workout Protein Bars, that is (see right).  I guess they're not bad if you like lemon, but Extra Virgin Olive Oil (with lemon) is NOT a substitute for Coconut Oil, FYI.  And they aren't joking about the lemon part.

Anyway, I'll spare you the boring intro... I hate when people try to make a recipe into a story when it's like just give me the need-to-know, ya know?

So, here it is:

Fool-Proof Collagen Peptide Overnight Oats (adapted from Spinach for Breakfast) - serves 3

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats

  • 2 cups Unsweetened Chocolate Almond Breeze almond milk

  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

  • 2 tablespoons sugar-free maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Cinnamon to taste

  • Coconut to taste

  • Honey to taste

  • 4 scoops of Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. add all ingredients to a dish and combine

  2. set in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight (*pro tip: bottle in nearly-empty peanut butter jars, if available)

  3. serve with fresh fruit or nuts, if desired (I chose almond butter, bananas, frozen blackberries, chia seeds, coconut and raw cacao nibs)

GLOSSARY:

  • Adapted = we didn't have some of the ingredients, so I had to get creative

  • To taste = I forgot to measure, so no clue how much is in there

*And incase you need a reminder as to WHY we're adding collagen to everything:

  • Collagen Peptides blend into anything, hot or cold! And when they say unflavored, they mean it. You can add a scoop to anything and won’t taste a difference

  • It enhances hair, skin & nails: see here for proof

  • It improves digestion: naturally occurring amino acids in collagen peptides provide a strong line of defense for your gut.

  • It boosts joint health: face your first CorePower Yoga class like a champ!

GOOD LUCK, BABES!
