Almond Butter Vega Protein Overnight Oats. Vegan. GF.
Overnight oats are one of my most favorite on-the-go breakfasts! They take minutes to prep at night and you’re set for next morning. Post workout breakfasts for me consist of Vega green smooties or overnight oats. I thought I would combine the two this round and it turned out beautifully. Plus ice cold oats post a super muggy run is heavenly. Plus topping it with nuts and seeds… count me in!
1/3 cup of rolled oats (I use Bob’s Redmill gluten free rolled oats)
1/3 cup of unsweetened Silk unsweetened cashew milk
1/2 of a sliced banana
1 tablespoon of Vega protein powder (I suggest vanilla/chocolate or mocha)
1 heaping tablespoon of almond or peanut butter (I prefer Justin’s)
1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
A splash of maple syrup
Get a container with a lid and add the milk first. Then add the remaining ingredients. Give it a good stir and taste it. Adjust the flavors if needed. Then place in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours. When ready to serve, top with additional maple syrup, nut butter, nuts, seeds or fruit. Dig in!
