Say “hello” to your new favorite way to spice up your oatmeal! This Double Chocolate Protein Oatmeal is so delicious that you won’t believe it’s healthy enough for breakfast.
One cup of cooked oatmeal has 4 grams of fiber, which is healthy for your heart, your gut, and your blood sugar levels. But despite all of its benefits, oatmeal can be a little bland. This Double Chocolate Protein recipe is a way to wake up that morning bowl!
This chocolate delight is a convenient way to kick off your morning, and if you’re using rolled oats it can be ready in 5 mins or less.
When you want the taste and texture of steel cut oats, feel free to use them in this recipe. On the stove, heat up oats, water and a pinch of salt. Bring the mixture to a slight simmer, then turn off the heat, cover with a lid and let it soak overnight.
In the morning, add in the chocolate protein, chia seeds, almond butter and milk of choice and heat on the stove for 5 minutes.
