No, don’t think crazy like that.
I’m going to NEW ORLEANS for spring break!! Whoop whoop!
If you remember from last year, I went to Alaska as part of a service trip with a national church group I am a part of at Michigan State. It was an amazing experience and I knew I wanted to go on another trip this year since it is my last year to do so as a college student. When I saw New Orleans was an option for my spring break I knew I wanted to go there. My friends went last year and it is crazy to me the work that is still being done to recover from Hurricane Katrina, so I want to head down there and do my part to help out.
I don’t know too much about what I’ll be doing, but from what I have heard, I will probably be working on building a house for a family in need of one. We also get the chance to travel the city with our group and visit special landmarks.
I am pretty pumped to be going and am excited to meet a whole new group of Orthodox college students. I still keep in touch with my friends I made while in Alaska and am excited to do so again. I still have month until I go, but I am already starting to count down the days. I am also hoping that it will be a bit warm when I go down there!
Okay, enough about my spring break plans, let’s talk breakfast. (ignore the awful transition I just made)
I LOVE making overnight oats all the time, especially on busy mornings. I usually go for my peanut butter + jelly overnight oats since those are my go-to or my pumpkin butter overnight oats since I still have some TJ’s pumpkin butter leftover from the fall, but lately I have been wanting to switch it up. Chocolate overnight oats are always good, but I had another thought — COFFEE.
Coffee is a routine part of my breakfast, so why not add some into my overnight oats? Extra caffeine is all this girl needs!
So I gave it a try and was instantly a fan! Here’s what you need to do: make coffee in the morning and save 1/4 cup of it and keep it in the fridge. Prep the overnight oats in the evening following the recipe below, using the already made coffee, refrigerate overnight, and you have chocolate coffee overnight oats ready for you in the morning.
- ¾ cup Old Fashioned Traditional Oats
- ½ cup Vanilla Unsweetened Almond Milk
- ¼ cup Brewed Coffee
- 1 tbsp Chia Seeds
- 2 tsp Cocoa Powder
- Cacao Nibs, optional
- Combine all ingredients into a jar or container with a lid, mix, and cover.
- Set in fridge overnight.
- In the morning, add additional almond milk if too dry, and add cacao nibs if desired.
I used these cacao nibs.
Favorite spring break trip?
