Reasons to Love This Oats Recipe
Um. Chocolate AND raspberries as toppings? Yes, please. This has to be one of the best flavor combos in the world. It totally feels like a decadent little treat. The toppings are nice and sweet on their own, which eliminates the need for added sweeteners.
This recipe also happens to be nutritious! It’s packed with protein to keep you full and satisfied for longer than standard oats. It also has a bit of healthy fat from chia seeds to fight inflammation and keep you more satisfied after eating. As you’d expect, oats are also a great source of filling, heart-healthy fiber.
How to Make Raspberry Overnight Oats
1. Mix dry ingredients and milk in a jar
First, add the dry ingredients (oats, protein powder, and chia seeds) to the jar. I always put the lid on and give it a good shake to ensure that everything is evenly distributed. Then, add enough milk to cover your oats, put the lid on, and shake vigorously.
2. Add toppings
Add fresh or frozen raspberries and a sprinkle (or two) of chocolate chips. This recipe would be delicious with just about any fruit, especially strawberries.
To make this recipe even more filling, add a bit more fat by topping it with nuts like almonds or walnuts.
3. Refrigerate then serve!
To give your oats time to “cook,” refrigerate them for at least 4 hours or overnight. When you’re ready to eat, the oats should have absorbed most of the liquid and softened considerably.
Typically, overnight oats are served cold, but this recipe is particularly delicious warmed up in the microwave. Hello, melty chocolate deliciousness.
