Chocolate Brownie Overnight Oats with Raspberries would make for the perfect Valentine’s Day breakfast or for any day of the year!
This recipe is not only free of sugar, animal ingredients, and preservatives, but it’s also wonderful for your skin and heart thanks to the anti-inflammatory compounds found in oatmeal which reduce skin irritation and inflammation.
Did you know that cocoa is also high in antioxidants that fight free radicals and aging and is an excellent food to keep your heart healthy?
Raspberries add a large dose of Vitamin C to improve skin and immunity while also being a natural mood booster too!
I know what you’re thinking: It’s just dressed up oatmeal, right?
This bowl is brimming with a creamy, sweet flavor that has just the right touch of chocolate indulgence.
This recipe also features some of my favorite products including:
NuNatural’s new Dutch Cocoa Powder. This is an awesome cocoa powder high in antioxidants with no added sugar. You can find it at The NuNaturals website since it’s brand new and should be available wherever NuNaturals products are sold soon.
Vega’s new Chocolate Essentials shake mix which features greens, real Dutch cocoa powder, plant-based protein, and it’s free of grain, soy, dairy, wheat, sugar, and gluten. You can find it at Amazon or Target.
You can, of course, make this bowl of goodness without these ingredients, but they turn this bowl into a nutritionally packed, deliciously creamy breakfast bowl that I can’t imagine eating any other way (Seriously, I eat a rendition of this daily.).
Oh, and what makes it taste like brownie batter? Besides cocoa powder, coconut flour does!
In fact, coconut flour doesn’t even taste like coconut but makes everything you add it to taste like a delicious cake batter. I’m in love with the stuff, and it’s even higher in fiber than oatmeal plus a good source of protein while being low in fat. Trust me, it makes this recipe! 🙂
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 2 tablespoons chocolate nutritional/protein powder
- 1 teaspoon choice cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons coconut flour (this makes it taste like cake batter!)
- 1/16th tsp. pure stevia extract or 1 stevia packet
- tiny pinch of real vanilla bean powder (or you can use alcohol-free vanilla extract)
- 3/4 cup water
- 1/2 cup organic frozen raspberries
- Add the oats, coconut flour, vanilla, and stevia to a bowl. Stir to incorporate.
- Next, add in the water enough to thicken.
- Drop in the frozen raspberries (In the morning, they'll be nice and juicy after they defrost and create a natural syrup!).
- The next morning, stir in the cocoa powder and chocolate nutritional/protein powder to thicken up more. (I find the flavor is better for some reason than letting it sit overnight. You could also add these ingredients the night before too, though.)
- Top with with additional raspberries and a splash of unsweetened almond (or soy) milk if desired.
- You can also add fun toppings like cacao nibs, goji berries, and any other berries like strawberries if you like. Have fun with it!
