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
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.
