Chocolate Monkey Overnight Protein Oats #Glutenfree #Vegan

So I've recently become addicted to Overnight Oats and I just can't seem to get enough of this yummy, nutrient packed breakfast.  Never had them? Oh, man...you MUST try them.  I love that they are super easy to prepare ahead of time and are great for a quick meal on the go.  And you can make a million variations with simple ingredients from your house.

I'm going to share my current favourite flavour....Chocolate Monkey!  Yup, chocolate for breakfast and it's healthy for you too.  Score!
Chocolate Monkey Overnight Protein Oats
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup Gluten-free Oats
  • 1 cup Vegan Milk (I like unsweetened Vanilla Almond-Coconut or Hemp Milk )
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 1 very ripe Banana
  • 2 tbsp Unsweetened Peanut Butter (optional)
  • 1 tbsp Hemp Hearts (optional)
  • 1 tbsp Ground Flax Seed (optional)
  • 1/4 cup Vegan Protein Powder (Vanilla or Chocolate works best)
  • 1 tbsp of your favourite Sweetener (this is optional, but I like Brown Rice Syrup or Maple Syrup the best)
Instructions:

So it can't get much easier than this.  In a medium sized bowl mash your Banana with a fork.  Add in the rest of your ingredients EXCEPT the oats and whisk well.  Then stir in your milk.   If you are using Flax you may need to add a bit more liquid as the Flax will absorb a fair bit.  Pour your mixture into to small containers with tight fitting lids; small mason jars are perfect for this! Then place in your fridge overnight.  

In the morning you will have a lovely protein packed breakfast that will keep you going all morning.  Plus, if your breakfast is always rushed, this is a convenient way to grab something to eat on the go.  Oh yeah, I almost forgot...these Chocolate Monkey Overnight Protein Oats totally taste like dessert!  Once you try these, you'll never skip breakfast again!
