Chocolate Coconut Cold Oats

If you follow me on Instagram (username @simmondsfam) you would have seen these cold oats yesterday.

I don’t even know how to express how delicious these cold oats are. They remind me so much of the no-bake chocolate oat cookies I loved as a kid.

We called them Spider Cookies and the similarity to these cold oats is uncanny. I could eat them every day.

The best part is this protein-packed combo tastes just like dessert without the sugar high (and crash).

Chocolate Coconut Cold Oats

Ingredients:
1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut
1 – 2 tbsp cocoa (I like a lot)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 tbsp PB2
1 tsp chocolate greens powder (I use Amazing Grass)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of stevia powder (optional)
1/2 cup almond milk

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Let sit in the fridge while you go for a run, or overnight, stir and enjoy. If it gets too thick you can always thin it out with more almond milk.

Try not to lick the bowl.

Actually, go ahead. I won’t tell.

  1. Yum – I’ve never thought to add coconut to my oats. Great idea!!

  2. Damn it! I don’t think we can buy PB2 or Amazing Grass here. I will have to search for a TJ’s when T and I are in the States next week.

    • PS – that looks seriously amazing…

    • Both of those can be omitted if you want. I just add the greens to boost the nutrition. You can also top it with peanut butter after until you can find some PB2 – I order mine online at iherb.com. I’ve also made this in an almost empty peanut butter jar – takes it to a whole new level!

      Have fun at Trader Joes! I’m jealous. I may have to convince my husband to take a trip to Spokane soon :)

  3. Wow, these sound awesome! I am all about anything cocoa powder/chocolate related, without the extra sugar. Definitely trying these! Off to follow you on twitter and instagram, too. :)
