Brownie Batter Overnight Oats (THM E)
These Brownie Batter oats are so rich and chocolatey, you won't believe they're an E!
I'm a chocoholic, I admit it. If I have a dessert choice, it will almost always include chocolate in some form. Honestly, chocolate is good any time - breakfast, lunch, snacks, or dessert. These oats are so decadent, you could enjoy them as a filling E dessert and not feel like you're missing any richness.
The prep for overnight oats could not be easier - combine the oats, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, whey protein isolate, Pyure or THM Gentle Sweet, vanilla, Lily's chocolate chips, unsweetened cocoa powder, and salt in a wide mouth mason jar with a small spatula. Pop a lid on it, then set it in the fridge for at least one hour, or overnight. You could even make this up to 5 days in advance, if you're looking for a grab-and-go snack, breakfast, or dessert. I prefer the wide mouth jars for these overnight oatmeals because it's a little easier to get the ingredients into the jar and really get them combined, however you could use anything that will hold the ingredients and has a lid.
Once the oats have a chance to soak and become soft, the chocolate chips actually break down slightly and almost create this pudding-like thickness. I enjoyed these as an afternoon snack, and I really felt like I was eating a completely rich pudding or sinful chocolate dessert.
These oats are so versatile, they could pass for breakfast, an afternoon snack, or a protein-packed E dessert. And, really, who doesn't want a decadent chocolate grab-and-go meal?
