As I have said before overnight oats are my jam and so easy to portion for the week. I love this recipe, because it’s like dessert! I originally made this recipe with cocoa powder, but since I am working on my Gains, I am using chocolate protein powder and it comes out SO good. I will give both options below, if you don’t need the extra protein. ENJOY!
1/2 Cup Oats (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
3/4 Cup Plant Milk*
1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
2 Tsp Maple Syrup
1/4 Tsp Vanilla
1 Tsp Cocoa Powder or 2 Scoops Chocolate Protein Powder**
1/2 Chopped Banana
3 Chopped Strawberries
1/4 Cup Blueberries (Optional)
1/4 Cup Chopped Walnuts
2 Tbsp Cocoa Nibs
Let’s Make it!
Mash 1/2 banana in a mason jar or airtight tupperware. Add all other ingredinets listed in the “Base” portion. Mix well. Store in refridgerator overnight.
When ready to eat, pour the overnight oats into a bowl and add the toppings listed in the “Toppings” portion. Enjoy!!
* I like to use almond milk or Coconut Almond Milk; although, you can also use cow milk.
** You can use either Cocoa Powder OR Chocolate Protein Powder for this recipe. I have been working on my Gains, so I have been using the protein powder. I recommend mixing the milk with the protein powder in a shaker to mix before adding it to the overnight oats base.
