Can’t you almost smell it through your screen?
That smell kills me when I’m walking through Terminal A in the Atlanta airport. It’s absolutely intoxicating… and all I can do not to stop and order a dozen cinnamon rolls.
I nearly attacked the man behind me last night… he brought one on the plane and didn’t offer a bite. Cruel.
The only thing that saved this man’s life is the fact that I’d had Cinnamon Roll Overnight Oats for breakfast. Post-run.
Cinnamon Roll Extract was the discovery of a lifetime. I found the teeny bottle (seriously – this pic is true to size) in a cook’s supply store.
It is made by LorAnn Oils and is referred to as a “Super Strength.” If you use this, know that it’s VERY concentrated – 3-4x a regular extract.
I only needed to use a couple of drops to achieve that buttery cinnamon roll taste!
These oats pack a ton of protein and nutrients that will keep you full until lunch! They will also provide you energy as your brush up on wines of Italy… one more week!!!
Cinnamon Roll Overnight Oats
- 1/4 C oatmeal
- 2 tsp chia seeds
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use Growing Naturals)
- 1/4 C Greek yogurt
- 1/2 C unsweetened almond milk
- 6-7 drops Vanilla NuNaturals Stevia
- 1/16 tsp cinnamon roll extract (a little goes a long way!)
In a small bowl, mix together dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and stir until combined.
Place in fridge overnight. Remove in the morning, stir, and enjoy!
Note: These were great cold after a workout, but the same flavors would be fantastic in a warm oatmeal on a cool fall morning.
I haven’t tied to get oats through airport security yet… I wonder if they count as liquid?! Will test it out and report back. 🙂
What are you looking forward to this weekend?
Have you found any unique extracts that you love?
