Choc Protein Overnight Oats
Overnight oats are one of my favourite breakfasts of all time as they're so convenient, nutritious and there are so many different combinations to try that it's impossible to get bored with them. Just throw all of your ingredients together in a bowl the night before, cover, refrigerate and voila, you have a nutrition-filled breakfast with no prep time required. This recipe is packed with plant protein, healthy Omega 3 fats, anti-oxidants and slow release carbs to ensure that you stay full, satisfied and energetic for your busiest of work days.
1/4 cup dry rolled oats (If you are gluten intolerant choose gluten free oats)
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp raisins
1 scoop Body By Wild Oh So Cocoa Vegan protein powder (Or any chocolate-flavoured pea protein powder of choice)
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
The night before eating, place all of your ingredients in a bowl or glass jar and stir through, cover and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, eat it cold straight out of your bowl or jar or heat it up before serving if you wish. No cooking required.
Add any toppings of your choice (cacao nibs and coconut are my favourite).
