Ultimate Chocolate Protein Oats (Vegan)
Protein powder doesn't have to just be used in post-workout shakes - it's so much more versatile than that! Here, we've used it to bump up the protein content and flavour of our favourite morning bowl of oats...
Combine the oats, cocoa powder, milk, salt and sweetener in a saucepan. Bring to a boil before reducing the heat to a low temperature.
Simmer for 3 to 5 minutes until thickened, stirring occasionally.
Remove from the heat and stir through the chocolate chips and protein powder. You may want to add a dash more milk to get your preferred consistency.
Pour into a bowl and top with your favourite toppings!
- 50-60g oats
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 cup milk - we like Rude Health hazelnut or almond milk
- 1 serving Neat Nutrition Chocolate Protein (whey or plant)
- 1 tbsp maple syrup or alt. sweetener of choice
- Chopped dark cacoa nibs
- Pinch of salt
- Toppings of your choice: fruit, yoghurt.
