Chocolate Blackberry Banana Overnight Oats

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.

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.
