Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oatmeal

I joined Weight Watchers last week.

No high fives yet! I originally joined Weight Watchers in 1995/96 and successfully lost 45 pounds. I kept it off for a few years and then got pregnant with The Boy {Yes, he is now 15}. Since then I have re-joined Weight Watchers more times than I can actually remember. 

I weighed in today and want to tell you all that I lost 3.8 pounds. 

This week I ate a lot of overnight oatmeal for breakfast.  I wanted to share the recipe with you because it is too yummy to stay in my kitchen.

1/3 cup of Old Fashioned Oatmeal (uncooked)
1/3 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
1/3 cup Greek Yogurt (I used Stoneybrook Farms Oikos' Plain)
1/2 teaspoon Chia Seeds
2 Tablespoons Better'n Peanut Butter (from Trader Joe's)
1/2 Tablespoon Hershey's Unsweetened Cocoa
2 packets of Truvia
1 Banana

Mix everything together in a bowl. Put the mixture into a seal-able container and put it in the refrigerator overnight.  It makes 1 serving. Each serving has 7 Points Plus Weight Watchers Points.
Total Calories is 403, Total Carbs: 74g, Total Fat: 6 g, Total Protein: 18 g.
This breakfast sustains me from breakfast time (about 8:00) until lunch time (12:00). It also provides me with  a great chocolate fix, which to be honest I need!
