Oatmeal is an extremely healthy complex carbohydrate that is full of fiber and provides lots of energy! Many people complain though that oatmeal is too boring, and I agreed until I made this recipe a couple years ago! Now, I eat oatmeal on a regular basis!
Makes 1 serving
½ cup old fashioned oats
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon flaxseeds
1/3-1/2 cup liquid (water, almond milk, cashew milk)
½ cup fruit (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries)
Put oatmeal, protein powder, chia seeds, and flaxseed into a container or mason jar. Slowly add in liquid and mix evenly until everything is blended together. Make sure mixture is not too dry; there should be enough water or milk of choice so that it can absorb into the oats overnight. Seal and refrigerate overnight, or at least a minimum of 4 hours. When ready, top with fruit of choice and enjoy!
*For more of a dessert flavor, use chocolate protein powder and top with dark chocolate chips or peanut butter.
