Date Me, Baby!

A little late for Valentines day, but get your love on with some dates!

This recipe is chewy, sweet, creamy, peanut-buttery and filling. With your morning cup of coffee, tea, or water, it’s a healthy, but indulgent way to fuel up. At 500 cals it might be a little spendy, but it’s the first meal of the day—so make room, people! #WorthIt.


Peanut Butter & Date Overnight Oats –
serves 1
(approx. 500 cals)

1/2 c. unsweetened soy milk
3 tbsp. plain yogurt  (I used Liberte Classique 2%)
1 tsp. vanilla
1/3 c. steel cut oats
1/4 c. chopped, pitted dates
1/2 tbsp. Maple syrup
1 tbsp. all natural peanut butter
1 tbsp. chia seeds (optional, +45 cals)

1. Combine soy, yogurt, and vanilla in your container of choice! (Jar, bowl…whatever…)
2. Stir in oats, dates, and peanut butter, making sure everything is evenly distributed
3. Taste–if you want more sweetness, add the maple syrup (if not, -25 cals!)
4. Stir in chia seeds, cover container, and put in fridge overnight.
5. Enjoy!
