Protein Packed Overnight Oats

Chocolate Walnut Overnight Oats
Overnight oats are totally my new obsession. This is going to be perfect for the summer when you don’t want to eat hot oatmeal and you can still get all the nutrition. Also perfect this morning because in Connecticut its going to get to 80 today!! Oatmeal is such a blank canvas and you can add anything that you want to it. I love being able to have oatmeal in the morning for breakfast but I don’t always have the time to make it so this recipe is the perfect solution. It’s all ready for you in the morning. This recipe is super packed with protein and healthy fats to help you stay full all the way until lunch.

1/2 cup organic rolled oats
1 cup almond milk
3 tablespoons vegan chocolate protein powder
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon shredded coconut
2 tablespoons walnuts
1- Mix oats, almond milk, protein powder, chia seeds, and coconut all together in a bowl, cover and put in the fridge overnight.
2- In the morning add the walnuts and dice the banana and add to the oats.
3- If the oats are too thick add a few splashes of almond milk
4- Eat cold or heat through
What is everyones favorite thing to have for breakfast? Does anyone else love overnight oats as much as me?
