High protein peanut butter chocolate oat bake – this naturally sweetened and healthy make ahead recipe is perfect for breakfast on-to-go or if you LOVE dessert for breakfast.
It’s that time of year again where people are making resolutions to become their best self, and as eating healthier often tops the list of good intentions my no.1 tip for this is to be organised; because when it comes to eating healthily I’m a whole-hearted believer in preparation.
You don’t have to be one of those people who spends their Sunday evening prepping all of their meals for the week ahead but knowing what you’re going to make, and having food to take with you on-the-go can make all the difference in keeping on track.
Now there’s one meal I know a lot of people skip or don’t have time for and that’s breakfast. But as someone who cannot start the day with out it I love to find quick and easy ways to make breakfast in the mornings more convenient as well as delicious.
With this make-ahead high protein peanut butter chocolate oat bake you can prep it the night before and bake it the following morning. Or if you REALLY have no time you can do both the night before, just remember to pop it in a container and take it with you when leave the house.
Having good-quality storage like these glass containers from VonShef is an essential when it comes to healthy eating. Whether you’re doing food prep, needing to store leftovers or taking this oat bake with you on-the-go, you can’t be without them.
If you’re wondering why I use glass…
Glass > Plastic Container
- You can bake, freeze, refrigerate, microwave & dish wash
- They don’t’ stain, or take on smells
- They’re environmentally-friendly, as they can last longer
- & You can use them for both hot and cold food
On to the recipe…
This high protein oat bake is rich, chocolaty and delicious. And it really does taste like a real treat. You can eat it hot, cold, with an extra serving of peanut butter or berry compote. Customising this recipe to suit your own tastes is pretty easy. Want more chocolate? Throw in a handful of choc chips. Or not a chocolate fan? Just swap out the cacao powder for extra peanut flour.
Planning ahead really can save you time overall so why not bake it now and enjoy for the rest of the week. Simply refrigerate and cut a square off in the morning.
