Brownie Batter Protein Oats

Doesn't get much better than this! Chocolate and oatmeal. Yum!! Not to mention all the healthy protein, carbohydrates and fats that these oats contain. Start your morning off right with this delicious recipe. 

This recipe is also made the night before so you don't have to worry about not having time in the morning to make it. 

Just get up and enjoy! 

Ingredients:

1/2 cup old fashioned oats

1 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Flax egg (1 tbsp flax meal + 3 tbsp water)

1 scoop chocolate protein powder

1 tbsp coconut flour

1 tbsp cocoa powder

1 tbsp organic coconut sugar

Directions:

Combine the old fashioned oats, 1 cup of the vanilla almond milk and vanilla extract in a saucepan. Cook on medium heat until all of the liquid is absorbed.

Add in the flax egg and stir well. Let the mixture cook for about 1-2 minutes more. Just until the oats are fluffy.

Stir in the protein powder, coconut flour, cocoa powder and organic coconut sugar until combined. Add in the extra 1/4 cup of vanilla almond milk if needed.

Refrigerate overnight, uncovered.

The next morning, stir the oatmeal very well and add extra non dairy milk if needed before serving.

There are many options for toppings as well. Try some slivered almonds or even a few chocolate chips. The oatmeal can also be eaten cold or it can be warmed up if desired.

Enjoy!
