Get your day started with a buzz with these meal prep mocha overnight oats made with coffee and chocolate protein powder. They’re not only easy to throw together, but high in protein, macro-friendly, and gluten-free.
It goes without saying that I start each and every day with iced coffee, but I don’t often add coffee to my breakfast. This recipe changed that! When I had some leftover coffee, instead of making coffee ice cubes, I decided to throw together some meal prep overnight oats with one of my favorite flavor combinations – coffee and chocolate!
This breakfast sounds decadent, but trust me, it’s actually nutritious and, of course, macro-friendly. It only uses 7 ingredients, 1 mixing bowl, and a few minutes to throw together together – my kind of recipe.
I’ve been making overnight oats for years (as they make for such a convenient on-the-go breakfast), so it was fun to try a new flavor combo! If you love thick, creamy oatmeal, I think you’ll absolutely love this recipe. The crunchy cacao nibs on top are the best part. Enjoy!
Fun fact: Cacao nibs have almost 4 times the antioxidants of dark chocolate! They also prompt the brain to release serotonin, a feel-good hormone. (source)
