Tired of the Same ol' Breakfast?

Last weekend I decided to try something new. Something that I had frequently looked at but never actively tried! If you’re a Weight Watcher you’ve possibly already heard of the blog Skinny Taste. This is a website filled with low-fat recipes that includes the WW pointsplus+ values! It makes it really convenient and easy to make delicious but WW friendly meals.

I decided to try something new for breakfast as I find it the hardest. I made the Skinny Overnight Oats in a Jar both Friday night and Saturday night. It took me less than 5 minutes and provided me with a DELICIOUS breakfast the next day :).

Here is the recipe. I highly recommend it and give it a 9/10! I made a few changes and it still tasted yummmmmmmy!! I might make it again for breakfast tomorrow because now I’m craving it!!

Heres how I made it:

Ingredients (minus brown sugar! whoops)


1/4 cup Oats (I used Large Flake Oats and they worked fine)
1/2 cup unsweetened skim milk (or almond, soy)
1/2 Banana (she called for ¼ but I love banana taste!!)
1/2 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 cup blueberries (or any other berry)
1/2 Tsp brown sugar (I don’t own NuNaturals liquid vanilla stevia)
pinch cinnamon

Notes: I used Frozen Banana and it worked fine!

Mix all ingredients in a jar (or a tupperware container) and put in the fridge until the morning. Top with your favourite oatmeal topping! Enjoy!

What it looks like after you mix in all ingredients:


Finished product with a sexy Instagram'd finish!! :)


I topped mine with crushed walnuts and mmmm it added a little something something!!

6 Weight Watchers PointsPlus+! Usually I try to stay in the 3-5 points range for breakfast but this was sooo filling I just didn’t care! It kept me full for hours!


Also, the next day I prepared one with raspberries and less cinnamon. Here's how it looked:



I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!

Thanks for reading!

  1. I may have to try this. A leader at a WW location told me she likes to make oatmeal with yogurt and a bunch of frozen fruit. She said it gets so filling it's a great way to start the day.
