overnight peppermint chocolate chip oatmeal

Not usually the biggest peppermint chocolate fan but hey, I was feeling a little bit festive. Is anyone else freaking out that it's DECEMBER 6th?! Where has this year even gone? Anyway, one of my favourite style of overnight oatmeal thus far! The mixture of peppermint, milk chocolate, almond milk & cacao nibs makes this oatmeal simply irresistible!! I've had quite a few requests for this recipe so here it is... Enjoy my friends & happy Sunday :)

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 banana, mashed
  • 3/4 cup quick oatmeal
  • 3 tablespoons milk chocolate protein powder
  • 1 teaspoon white chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 2 tablespoons cacao nibs 
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup 
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 3/4 - 1 cup almond milk 

Optional: vanilla extract, raw cacao powder, greek yogurt

Method

  • Using a fork, begin mashing the banana in a sealed container, bowl or mason jar
  • Next add all of the dry ingredients into the same bowl and stir until all ingredients are combined
  • Lastly, pour your choice of almond milk overtop and continue to stir the ingredients together
  • Seal the oatmeal bowl with saran wrap or lid & allow the ingredients to set in the refrigerator overnight
  • In the morning remove the overnight oatmeal from the refrigerator & top with greek yogurt and cacao nibs!
