After my first go-round with the Chia-Oat Peanut Butter Flavor Brfy, I tried a few tweaks. Mr. Lazy Cook never rests.
Here is the original recipe:
1/3 c dry oats 2/3 c lowfat vanilla soy milk, 1 Tsp Chia Seeds, 1 Tsp PB2 Add Stevia to taste 1/2 banana diced in the overnight mixture and the other 1/2 diced fresh in the a.m.
I doubled the amount of PB2 to one tablespoon for more robust flavor. I also decided to forego including the banana into the fridge mixture. I put it in the next morning fresh. Finally, I doubled the Chia Seeds to a full tablespoon, because I thought that one teaspoon seemed skimpy.
The result was a big improvement. The additions beefed up the flavor and I liked the fresh banana on top.
Here are the increases in nutrients:
One tsp of PB2 comes to: 45 calories, 1.5 grams total fat, no cholesterol, 94 mg of sodium, 5 carbohydrates, 2 grams fiber and 5 grams of protein.
One half tablespoon of Chia Seeds yields: 27 calories, 1.7 grams total fat, 0.2 grams saturated fat, no cholesterol, 0.8 mg of sodium, 2.3 grans of carbohydrates, 2 grams fiber and 0.8 grams protein.
