Cooler 1 Chocolate Oats

I regret not taking a picture of this... No, it was not a pretty site, but it was delicious!!!

Cooler 1 Chocolate Oats

1/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup water
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
1/4 cup unsweetened chocolate almond milk (can use water instead)
1 tbsp chia seeds

Cook oats in water, according to directions on box (stove top or microwave works).

Place cooked oats, almond milk and chocolate protein powder in a Vita-Mix or blender, loosen the top to let the steam escape or pressure will build up. Blend until mixed. (Note: DO NOT use your Magic Bullet for this step).

Place chia seeds in a bowl and pour oat mixture over the top. Stir until combined. Let sit for 30 minutes or until the mixture begins to thicken.

If desired, reheat bowl in microwave for 30 seconds to warm up the mixture.

This was one of the most amazing tasting bowls of oats EVER!!! YUMM-O!!! If I was not on Cooler 1, I would top this with some almond butter and cocoa bliss.

Does this make one serving? Mine was approx. 1 cup prepared, but after eating about 1/2 cup I was so full! Thanks for sharing!

Yes, this is one serving. Although, sometimes I am too full to eat the entire batch, too. So, you can eat it in two sittings.

I tried this one as a fluke wondering what it would taste like w/ chocolate protein powder and loved it. I added a sliced banana and a dash of cinnamon and it was so good. I then tried vanilla protein powder and it was not as good, lol.
