Brownie batter. I think it may just be one of life’s simplest pleasures. I mean, who doesn’t love licking the spoon when you are making brownies!?! This overnight protein oatmeal is one of the easiest, yummiest, and well-balanced breakfasts that can be thrown together the night before and is ready when you are in the morning. There is no longer any excuse for not eating a delicious and satisfying breakfast, no matter how busy your mornings are!
1 cup Unsweetened almond milk (or low fat milk of choice)
1/2 cup Plain low fat Greek yogurt (or mashed banana, applesauce, or pumpkin)
2 tbs Unsweetened cocoa powder (or more, to taste)
1/8 tsp Salt
2-4 tbs sweetener that measures like sugar (to taste)
1 cup Old fashioned oats
1/4 cup Protein powder (or additional oats)
In a small bowl, mix all of the ingredients together. Divide between 2 small bowls, mugs, or mason jars. Cover and refrigerate overnight (or for at least an hour or more so the oats soften and absorb the liquid). Top with chopped nuts or topping of choice if desired! Enjoy cold, or microwave for 30-60 seconds to enjoy warm!
