Growing up, I was never a big fan of hot oatmeal, maybe it was the texture but for over a year now, I thought I would try overnight oats and I fell in love with the taste. I now make it for my family on a regular basis especially since it’s such a healthy way to start the day. Being high in protein and fiber, it keeps you satiated for hours!
I love to try different toppings and adding different natural sugars such as raw honey or 100% pure maple syrup. There are so many creations you can make with overnight oats.
I also added a scoop of collagen protein powder to make it even healthier since I love the benefits I have noticed in such a short time such as strong nails, longer hair, satiation and especially that it’s “gut healing”. 100% Pure Collagen protein is not just for anti aging, there are so many more health benefits by adding this to your daily routine.
Now for the recipe:
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 cup quick cooking rolled oats
1 tbsp. raw cacao powder
1 tbsp. flax seeds
1 tbsp. pure maple syrup (drizzle more over top if you want it sweeter)
1 scoop Further Food Collagen Protein Peptides Powder
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1 banana (sliced)
Sprinkle with sliced almonds (or your choice of nuts), optional
In a medium size mason jar, add the oats then milk, followed by the raw cacao powder, flax seeds & maple syrup.
Stir well, tightly cover with lid and refrigerate overnight
When ready to eat, separate among 2 bowls and add your toppings
