breakfast gluten-free oatmeal/granola

Overnight Chocolate Cherry "PrOats"

June 28, 2013

It’s been a while since I posted an oatmeal recipe. It’s not due to a lack of consumption since I eat them almost everyday but lately I’ve been keeping things classic, Hearty Overnight Oats style. But with cherries in peak season and my obvious love for all things cherry + chocolate (please see: Dark Chocolate Cherry Bars and Chocolate Cherry Green Smoothie as proof) I knew I had hit the jackpot with this recipe. Things have been a bit crazy on this end so a breakfast which involves 2 minutes of prep, 5 ingredients and 18 grams of protein is definitely a winner.

Chocolate Cherry Protein OatmealI’m off to NYC today so I may be a bit MIA on the blog scene. I thought I would leave you with this delightful recipe so you don’t forget about me:) For those Canadians out there, enjoy the long weekend and Happy Canada Day! I’ll be celebrating with our American neighbours but will be back to Toronto in time to ring in July 4th. Confused much? Clearly I am having an identity crisis…

Much love!

    I’ve never tried my overnight oats with cherries, but it sounds sooooo good. Like pie for breakfast. Mmmm.

      This is seriously good. I couldn’t handle the fact that I was “allowed” to eat this for breakfast. It tasted too good to be true!
