Overnight Oatmeal Chia Bowls

 

It’s August here in Georgia and for my kids that means back to school.  That also means early mornings of making breakfast and packing lunches. I’m always looking for quick and easy meals not only for them but for myself as well.  I also love make ahead dishes that are just as good on day five as they were the day I made them.  This is one of those recipes.  I also love it because it allows for each person in your home to add their favorite toppings so that you never have to hear, “but I don’t like that!”.  Cause who really wants to start the morning hearing those words?  This recipe is also a great way to start your morning with whole grains, fiber and even a good source of protein.  I actually used a nutrition app to plug in these ingredients and will share those nutrition facts at the bottom of the recipe.

Banana Cheesecake with Gooey Peanut Crust

 

If I had to pick one food to represent my childhood summer experience, it would have to be Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwiches.  I remember one summer spent riding my bicycle to a friend’s house, playing in his creek and eating peanut butter sandwiches just about every single day!  If we found ourselves at my Grandmother’s house, another ingredient would be added to this simple fare…..mayonnaise.  Please tell me I am not the only one who has consumed a peanut butter, banana and mayonnaise sandwich?!  My Grandma would say that the mayo helped to prevent the peanut butter from sticking to the roof of your mouth though I didn’t mind the stickiness and would have preferred to go without the mayo. Ugh!  Don’t worry, there is no mayonnaise in today’s recipe.  With that said, I set out this summer to recreate the flavors of my childhood by creating a cool, creamy, simple cheesecake recipe.
