Vegan High-Protein Chocolate Oatmeal!

If you follow my recipes, you probably noticed that I love eating oatmeal. But, I realized that by the time I put in all my ingredients, I was making an oatmeal that was either full of carbs or fats – yes, given, they were healthy carbs and healthy fats, but still. I wanted the protein portion to be a bit higher. Well, I’ve been using completely plant-based and soy-free Sun Warrior’s Choccolate Warrior Blend recently and decided to try to make my oatmeal with that. The first time I tried this recipe, I made it to liquidy with too much milk and then time after that, it tasted too chalky since there wasn’t enough balance between the oatmeal and the protein powder. But, I got it just perfect this morning, and I have to admit that it was reallyreally tasty. The oatmeal tasted just like a chocolate fudge brownie, the perfect breakfast for a girl who LOVES sweet things : )

The Recipe

Yields 1 Serving

Serving Size: 1 bowl

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup almond milk or water (you can use your typical daily milk if not vegan)

30 semi-sweet chocolate or carob chips

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 tsp cinnamon powder

1 scoop Sun Warrior Chocolate Warrior Blend Protein Powder

—————————————————————————————————–

Directions

1. Place the rolled oats and the chia seeds into a bowl and pour in the liquid of your choice (milk or water). Cook the oatmeal in the microwave for about 2 – 3 minutes depending on how cooked you like your oatmeal. Add or remove the amount of liquid you put as well depending on if you want your breakfast more watery or more thick. 

2. Mix in the protein powder and keep mixing till the consistency of the oatmeal becomes really thick and creamy. Throw in the chocolate or carob chips and mix some more. The oatmeal will still be a bit hot so the chips will begin to melt, and I personally thought this is why the oatmeal tasted so delicious.

3. Enjoy!
