SERVING SIZE: 2 small or 1 large bowl

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats, I prefer gluten free like Bob's Red Mill
  • 1 cup plain or vanilla flavored almond milk
  • 2 tbs. chia seeds
  • 2 tbs. unsweetened peanut butter
  • 2 tbs. chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tbs. cacao powder, see note
  • 1 tbs. honey or agave
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract*, only if using plain milk

optional toppings

  • mixed berries, bananas, chia seeds, more nut butter

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Combine all ingredients in a jar with lid or tupperware. Set into refrigerator and let soften for at least 4 hours or overnight! When ready to serve, finish with optional toppings and serve cold or at room temperature.

NOTES

These days you can find cacao powder in almost every grocery store, but note the spelling! Cocoa powder is heated when processed (dissolving many of the beans' nutrients).
