HOW TO: Brownie Batter Protein Overnight Oats!

Yes... you read that right! Are you sitting down? Brownie Batter Protein Overnight Oats. I found this recipe in the good ole' land of Pinterest (thank you Dashing Dish.. you are an angel) last Spring & quickly fell head over heels in love. Whether you're plowing into the second week of 2017 with your fitness resolutions going strong or you need a fun little pick me up to get you back on track, this is definitely a recipe to put on your list! I personally use Quest Chocolate Milkshake Protein (find it here ) , top it with strawberries, and eat it warm, but feel free to adjust it to fit your needs! Now run, don't walk & get this baby in the fridge to enjoy tomorrow morning... and don't forget to tag me in your super cute Instagram post ;) 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Unsweetened almond milk (or low fat milk of choice)
  • 1/2 cup Plain low fat Greek yogurt (or mashed banana, or pumpkin)
  • 2 tbs Unsweetened cocoa powder (or more, to taste)
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 2 tbs Baking stevia (or 1/4 cup sweetener that measures like sugar) or 3-4 pkts stevia 
  • 1 cup Old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup Protein powder (or additional oats)

 Method

The estimated total time to make this recipe is 5-10 minutes. 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!
