Vital Whey Cocoa Peanut Butter Overnight Oats Recipe (Makes 2 servings)
What You Need:
1 Cup Old Fashioned Oats rolled oats
1 Cup Whole Milk or milk of choice (I actually used 2% milk and it came out well)
1 Scoop of Vital Whey Cocoa
2 Tbls of natural peanut butter or nut butter of your choice
2 Tsp of maple syrup or honey
**The original also calls for 2 tsp of chia seeds, but I was out so I didn’t include in my recipe**
What You Do:
- Divide oats, milk, Vital Whey, peanut butter and sweetener between two jars. Screw lids onto each jar and shake vigorously until the ingredients are well combined.
- Place jars in fridge overnight or for at least 6 hours.
- Give each a good stir before serving. Add splash of milk if oatmeal is too thick.
