It is a little more than a month until the Toronto Waterfront Marathon, so I’ve been kicking into high gear in preparation for it. After I workout at the gym; when I get back home, I want something high in protein. Enter these tasty and healthy overnight oats.
A great post-workout breakfast because its packed full of nutrients!
Chocolate Blackberry Banana Overnight Oats
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/3 cup almond milk
- 1 tbsp chia seed
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp agave nectar
- 1/2 banana, sliced
- 1/4 cup blackberries
In a medium-sized container, add the oats, milk, chia seed and cocoa powder.
If you find it is too dry, add a tablespoon or two more milk.
Then add the agave, banana and blackberries and stir.
Place a lid on the container and stick in the fridge for at least 6 hours or overnight.
When ready, serve! If you want to make it sweeter, add more agave.
