Chocolately Overnight Oats

I’m pretty sure overnight oats are old news for most people.  Not for me though!  I’ve been wanting to make myself a batch for some time now but never quite got around to it.  Excuses, excuses…I know!  Well, I finally bit the bullet and prepared a bowl last night, stuck it in the fridge to “gel” together, and gobbled it all up this morning.  All I can say is, I’m kind of obsessed with my creation.  It tasted like a peanut butter cup.  A healthy one at that!

Trust me when I say, this tasted a bajillion times better then it looked!  It was super chocolately and packed in quite a bit of protein.  Oh how I love filling breakfasts!

And the best thing about overnight oats is that you can mix and match the ingredients to your heart’s content. 

Chocolately Protein Overnight Oats
Serves 1

1/2 cup quick cup oats
1 scoop Chocolate Sunwarrior protein powder
3/4 tablespoon dark chocolate cocoa powder
1 tablespoon chia seeds
3/4 of a medium banana (cut into super small pieces)
3/4 cup skim milk
1 scoop peanut butter

Mix everything together in a bowl until combined.  Refrigerate overnight.  Enjoy in the morning with a scoop of PB. Smile

MMM MMM GOOD!  (I promise!)

Are you a fan of overnight oats?  What method do you use to prepare your bowl?
