Ok ok, I’ve always been an overnight oats hater, but I didn’t want to be! So I came up with a plan that couldn’t fail, a plan involving the marriage of chocolate and peanut butter.
Mix together in a bowl or a jar:
1/2 c rolled oats
2T vanilla brown rice protein
1T chia seeds
2T natural peanut butter
1t cacao bliss (optional, can use cacao nibs)
1t agave nectar or maple syrup
1 1/4 c almond milk
1/2 t vanilla extracct
Stir or shake well and refrigerate overnight. Serve with banana soft serve if you’re extra hungry. (blend or food process a frozen banana with a small amount of almond milk+vanilla.)
Without the soft serve, SparkPeople tells me this meal has:
470 calories, 29 carbs, 25 grams of fat, and 33 grams of protein. The bulk of the calories and fat (210 cal, 16 g fat) comes from the peanut butter, which I will be leaving out next time. Chia seeds also added 5 grams of fat to the total. I used peanut butter to win myself over to overnight oats, and they’re good, but after seeing this info, I’m better off with a smoothie+protein powder!
And don’t forget, there’s still time to win The Happy Herbivore Cookbook!
