I finally got around to trying the “infamous” Vegan Overnight Oats from Angela’s site. Everybody and their mother have posted about some sort of variation of this recipe. This is what my first bowl looked like, and here are the ingredients!
- 1/3 cup quaker old fashioned oats
- 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 medium banana mashed
- 1 Tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 scoop of muscle gauge nutrition cinnamon roll protein powder
- 1/8 tsp baking spice
So yeah. Pretty damn good. I added the protein powder because I was trying to squeeze 20 grams of protein out of this little dish. I got 19, close! I’m sure at some time I’ll try adding nut butter, but I didn’t love it in hot oats so I’m not sure I’d like it in cold oats. I have peanut butter protein powder, so I could make it even more peanutty. I’ve been in love with warm oatmeal for a long long time and I like it on the dry side. As in, not creamy. This was a bit well, creamy but nothing a little more oats didn’t fix the next time! The photo makes it look more “creamy” than it truely was, it was still very tasty. The chia is interesting.
My second bowl had 1/4 cup muesli and 1/4 cup of oatmeal with chocolate mgn powder. Uh, yum. It also got me to 20g protein. The 1/2 cup is more my texture. You can make this stuff so many ways. SO easy too.
I’m sure I’ll have an “ode to warm oatmeal” post soon as the weather is changing. I make a LOT of warm oatmeal variations, but right now I’m digging the cold.
