Cinnamon Dessert Hummus

Chickpeas for breakfast (or dessert… whatever)!

I was, however, totally feeling that little container of leftover chickpeas.

Overnight Oats and Chia

I’ve been obsessed with this stuff lately! So easy, so quick, so yummy!

20140123-095443.jpg

Ingredients
1/4 cup quick oats or old fashioned oats
1/2 cup almond milk (or other vegan milk)
1/2 a chopped banana
1/2 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 cup whatever kind of berries you want (I used strawberries)
1/2 tbsp agave nectar
Sprinkling of cinnamon

The How To
Put all your ingredients in a mason jar (I guess you could use any kind of container that seals) and shake!
Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight and enjoy!

Tips:
Variations are endless here! I’ve been doing pumpkin spice with raisins, and ohmygod, it’s amazing.
Here’s how: nix the banana and berries and add 3 tbsp pumpkin purée, a handful of raisins, and a sprinkling of nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon… Or pumpkin pie spice. Or whatever! Get creative!
