weight, Rebecca Lazar - CHOCOLATE CHIP OVERNIGHT OATS

I wasn’t a huge fan of overnight oats when it became a fad – I tried a few different recipes and they just weren’t doing it for me, not to mention many had over 400 calories per serving. But this recipe is different – so delicious, you will think you are having dessert for breakfast. It has fiber, nutrients, protein and, at 195 cal/serving, completely guilt free.

Serves 2

Ingredients:

3/4 cup organic almond milk (we like the Mooala or 365 brand)

1/2 cup organic gluten free rolled oats

2 teaspoons organic maple syrup

1 Tablespoon organic whole chia seeds

1 Tablespoon Enjoy Life Mini chocolate chips

1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon organic cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg

Putting it all together:

  • Place all ingredients in a mason jar and stir.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight; divide in 2 bowls and enjoy!
  • Optional: Add organic raw cacao nibs, shredded coconut and/or organic sliced strawberries before serving.

Notes:

  1. Make it protein powered by adding a scoop of collagen protein before serving (you won’t taste it!)
  2. For the freshest nutmeg, but them whole and use a zester to quickly make it “ground” nutmeg.
  3. You can use quick oats but we prefer the full rich flavor of whole oats (quick oats make it more mushy).
