A popular recipe that has many people’s attention is the overnight oats, I found a fun recipe on Pinterest that I think many of you will like – it comes packed some protein so definitely awesome for some of my athletes out there. I, have not had the chance to make my own overnight oats, but I keep so many recipes of them because I hope to at some point be able to create my own because they look so good! Yumm 🙂 I have had many of my friends who swear by overnight oats and say they make for a great breakfast or post workout snack as well, so definitely a plus-plus there. If you love peanut butter and banana, then you will be excited to try this recipe.

Last Saturday I missed the opportunity to share a recipe with all of you, but was able to do one on my podcast last Thursday. This particular recipe, is for anyone who enjoys sweet potatoes, personally, I do not, so I most likely will not give this a try, but my family loves it so I know they make something with similar ingredients during the holiday months. Hopefully this quick recipe will be one you share with the folks.
- 2 sweet potatoes
- maple syrup (preferably pure) 2 tbsp
- cinnamon 1/4 tsp
- nutmeg 1/4 tsp
- pepper 1/4 tsp
- salt 1/2 tsp
- olive oil 1 1/2 tbsp
- Heat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper or tin foil and spray it. (or without use of parchment paper and spray it with cooking spray)
- Cut the sweet potatoes in cubed shaped, and place them inside a mixing bowl. Add the olive oil and maple syrup on top of them, then sprinkle the spices, mix together until the sweet potatoes are well covered
- Dump onto the cookie sheet and bake them for 15-20 minutes (should be tender and slightly crispy) and you will want to stir the sweet potatoes half way through cooking time.
