Cake for breakfast is here with these Black Forest Cake Protein Overnight Oats! This high protein oatmeal recipe is healthy, super easy to make, and packed with black forest flavor!
All you’re going to need for this one is a mixing bowl and something to store you’re oats in if you’re not using your mixing bowl to do this.
Add right into your bowl 1/2 cup of unsweetened milk substitute, 1/2 cup of rolled oats, 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 1/2 container of a cherry Greek yogurt (I used cherry chocolate), 1 tablespoon of a sugar free strawberry jelly, 1 scoop of a chocolate protein powder, and 1/2 cup of dark sweet cherries.
Did you know that cocoa powder has no sugar in it and 2 grams of fiber for every 10 calories?
Mix all of those ingredients together until everything is incorporated.
Take out something to store your overnight oatmeal in if you’re not using your mixing bowl and pour your oats into it.
Cover your black forest cake protein overnight oats and put them into the fridge until they thicken up. This should should only take a few hours but I suggest putting them in there overnight for the best texture.
Remove your oats from the fridge and top them with the other 1/2 container of cherry Greek yogurt.
