Chocolate Brownie Overnight Oats

Ingredients

1/2 Cups Skim Milk (125g)

2  Fresh Dates (15g), or you can soak dried dates for a few hours

1/4 Cup Rolled Oats (22g)

1 Tablespoon Cocoa (10g)

2 Teaspoons Chia Seeds (10g)

1 Teaspoon Maple Syrup (3g)

1 Teaspoon Desiccated Coconut (3g)

1/3 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon (1g)

1 Teaspoon Walnuts (5g), chopped

Method

  1. Place the milk, dates, cocoa powder, maple syrup and cinnamon into the blender. Blend for 2-5 minutes, until a nice creamy consistency is achieved.
  2. Add the oats and chia seeds to a bowl  (or mason jar) and stir through the blended creamy milk mix until fully combined.
  3. Cover and set in the refrigerator overnight. Enjoy in the morning with a topping of walnuts and coconut.

Mish Tips

For an optional garnish, try adding a small sprinkle of Cocoa Nibs to your creation. Not only will this add a to-die-for crunch, but also a serious “brownie” taste!
