Dark Chocolate & Banana Oats





This has become one of my favorite breakfasts, not only is it amazingly tasty but it also only takes a few minutes to put together.

Start with:
1 scoop protein powder (I like Cellucor's molten chocolate or Beverly International UMP in cookies & cream)
1 spoonful Hershey's dark chocolate cocoa powder
1 cup almond milk

Whisk these ingredients together until thoroughly mixed. Top with 2 tbsp chia seeds. Set in the refrigerator for about 5-10 minutes to let the chia seeds absorb the liquid.

In a separate bowl, microwave 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats for 1-2 minutes. Don't let them dry out too much, then add to the chia seed mixture and stir. Top with a sliced banana and a sprinkle of stevia and enjoy the amazing chocolatey-banana goodness.

Feel free to also adjust quantities, you could make half the recipe, or add less oats or chia seeds, or add more protein depending on your diet. This is a large and filling breakfast for me, and I'm just under 6'0", so this could easily be too much food for some.

Approximate Macros for recipe as listed:

520 calories
63 g carbohydrates (18 of which are fiber)
15 g fat (primarily omega-3's from the chia seeds)
34 g protein
