It seems that K&K Test Kitchen is turning into a breakfast blog. Breakfast has been the only meal that I have consistently experimented with this summer, and as the most important meal of the day, it is always good to keep it interesting.
Earlier this summer, I posted a version of overnight oats. Before we get to fall temperatures and want to make regular oats (I know some of you are experiencing extreme heat still and this is the perfect breakfast for a heat wave), I wanted to share this extremely decadent and delicious version of overnight oats. It might feel like you are eating dessert for breakfast, and that is perfectly fine in my book. Except this breakfast is packed with protein, fiber, and healthy fats! This breakfast is also perfect for those on the run, just make it in a mason jar and take it along with you on your way to work, school, the gym, etc.
Chocolate Strawberry Overnight Oats1/3 cup oats (the type doesn't really matter, but I use old fashioned)
1/3 cup sugar-free chocolate almond milk
1/3 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
1/2 banana, mashed
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1/4 cup fresh strawberries, quartered
1/2 tablespoon chocolate chips
Small handful of chopped walnuts
In a jar or resealable container, stir together the ingredients until well combined. Refrigerate overnight. Top with fresh strawberries, walnuts, and chocolate chips in the morning, and enjoy!
