Happy Saturday everyone! A yummy little recipe to kickstart the weekend with. Jack actually started making these every evening for his breakfast the next day so I took inspiration and put my spin on them, but in fairness, credit goes to him! It’s packed full of protein from both the protein powder itself and fiber-rich chia seeds and has a B-E-A-U-TIFUL chocolatey rich taste to it :) The soaked oats will give you your sustained energy hit for the morning and well, to be honest, it’s just the perfect hassle-free, prepare-in-advance breakfast!
We normally just add all the ingredients to a tupperware box, mix them together and leave in the fridge overnight, but, as I try to dub myself somewhat of a foodie blogger, I thought I best make a little effort for you and put it in a nice black bowl. Do we like!?
If you’re always on the go and find you tend to reach for unhealthier breakfasts because of time limitations, this will undoubtedly be your new go-to. And if that wasn’t handy enough, these overnight protein oats are also packed with antioxidant-rich cinnamon which gives a lovely subtle and sweet taste to them.
I like to top it with everything from fresh berries, coconut, bee pollen, sunflower seeds and whatever else is in that healthy pantry cupboard! The recipe is so versatile and I’ve actually had it as a snack throughout the day many a time before. It’s just dreamy :)
