Tiramisu Protein Oats
What's great about it
This is a quick and healthy breakfast or snack that's full of protein, antioxidants, probiotics and fibre that your body needs for good health. Made with just a few simple ingredients including Healthy Chef Protein and Naked Chocolat to boost the amino acid and nutritional profile and keep you energised all day long.
I normally double the recipe so I have enough to last me a week of breakfasts. The secret is letting the oats soak overnight so they get soft and more digestible for the body. For a thicker mix and a boost of omega 3, you can add 1 - 2 tablespoons of white chia seeds. Enjoy.
1 cup rolled oats
4 tablespoons Healthy Chef Pure Native WPI vanilla
1 cup oat milk
2 shots espresso (60ml) or 2 teaspoons coffee powder
2 teaspoons maple syrup (optional)
1/2 cup thick natural yoghurt (your choice)
4 teaspoons Healthy Chef Naked Chocolat Dark
OPTIONAL add 2 tablespoons white chia seeds for a thicker consistency and a boost of omega 3.
We also love adding 2 tablespoons Healthy Chef Marine Collagen for a boost of gut and skin health benefits.
THE NIGHT BEFORE:
COMBINE oats, chia seed if using and Healthy Chef Protein into a mixing bowl.
ADD the oat milk, espresso and maple to sweeten if using.
MIX WELL, cover and sit in the fridge overnight. This process will allow the oats to expand, soften and become easier for your body to digest.
THE NEXT MORNING layer the oats with the yoghurt and a dusting of Healthy Chef Naked Chocolat into 2 glasses.
GARNISH with a final sprinkle of Naked Chocolat.
REFRIGERATE until you are ready to serve.
