These oats are loaded with dietary fibers and proteins, as well as with some powerful antioxidants from maca and raw cacao powder. It’s super nutritious and satisfying meal that is perfect for busy mornings.
From time to time, I tend to get over excited and obsessed with one particular ingredient. I then stuff like everything with it and every day I think of new ways to incorporate that ingredient into my meals. Lately, I’m super obsessed with maca powder. Not that it’s a bad thing to be obsessed with world most powerful superfood. But I started to feel I’m maybe overdoing it, you know…. maybe a little too much.
How to not love maca. I mean, its deep earthy mildly nutty flavor fits nicely with everything. That’s the problem, you see – It goes perfectly with everything i eat lately. I use it in my smoothies, and macaccino is just one amazing drink. So yummy! Also I have a freezer stocked with Turmeric Maca Energy Balls.
But I noticed one more thing about maca. It affects positively on my body, leaving me full and energized. And I DO LOVE that feeling. I’m still not sure about balancing hormones thing (how do you even know that?!), but maca serves me good as an energy booster, that’s for sure.
Just last week, I discovered another way to incorporate that amazing superfood into my daily eats. Ladies and gentlemen, say hello to most delicious breakfast you can imagine – Peanut Butter Maca Overnight Oats.
Peanut Butter Maca Overnight Oats have everything I love in one jar – super healthy oats, powerful maca powder (of course), my favorite peanut butter and raw chocolate + banana. Topped with crunchy peanuts. What’s not to love in this combo, right?!
These oats are so unbelievably good. And by good, I mean SOOO fricking good. Peanut Butter Maca Overnight Oats are sweet, creamy, so chocolatey… The flavors are just amazing. Seriously, be prepared to get mind blown. I mean, come on… peanut butter and chocolate. It’s like GREATEST combo ever! Add then there’s maca with its distinct caramel, malt-like flavor. Oh-main-Got!
Its deliciousness is a curse really. Once you started munching on these Peanut Butter Maca Overnight Oats, you just can’t stop. And oats + peanut butter + banana + chocolate are ONE FILLING combination. So quickly you find yourself so stuffed, so full and you barely ate like what – two – three spoons. You’re in position where you want more, but you simply can’t stuff another bite. It’s a curse I say. A curse!
