It’s peanut butter time: 2 easy breakfast recipes that are packed with the tasty protein

MILWAUKEE -- Did you know it's National Peanut Butter Day? To celebrate, we're going to make two quick and easy breakfast recipes using peanut butter. In this week's Dining with Duria, Angelica shows us how to prepare peanut butter overnight oats and peanut butter chia seed pudding.

Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup oats (not the instant kind)
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1-2 tbsp natural peanut butter (based on taste)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup, honey, or artificial sweetener like Stevia
  • Sliced banana (for topping)

Directions:

Put all ingredients in a mason jar or seal-tight bowl.  Stir to mix.  Put in refrigerator, and let sit for a few hours or overnight until oats thicken.  If you’d like, top with sliced bananas before serving.

Peanut Butter Chia Seed Pudding

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup chia seeds
  • 2 cups milk, either almond/coconut/cashew (NOTE: Can also use a full can of coconut milk if you like pudding thicker)
  • ¼ cup natural peanut butter
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 tbsp (1/4 cup) or less of maple syrup, honey, or artificial sweetener like Stevia

Directions:

  1. In a blender or food processor, blend milk, peanut butter, cinnamon, vanilla, and sweetener.  Transfer blended wet ingredients into a medium-sized bowl.
  2. Fold in chia seeds and whisk until combined.
  3. Cover and put in refrigerator, and let sit for a few hours or overnight until chia seeds thicken to a pudding-like consistency.  Be sure to stir pudding a few more times within first hour to prevent clumping.  If you’d like, top with sliced bananas before serving.
