Ok so I have seen this circulating all over FB… THIS RECIPE IS 1.5 YELLOW, 1/2, BLUE AND 1/2 RED if you add the yogurt.
and since I eat something close to this almost every day, I decided to make my own version of it…
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
Of course.. you can make this without the coconut and almond so it’s regular brownie.. but who doesn’t love an almond joy!?!
I Put the containers it would take up for you too!
What you will need….
1/4 cup of old fashioned oats (I prefer Bob’s Red Mill Thick Rolled)-1 YELLOW
1/4 Cup of unsweetened Coconut Milk..( canned just has a better flavor in my opinion)-1/2 YELLOW
-so if you don’t like coconut you can add almond milk or cashew.. or just regular low fat milk…
1 Tbs Unsweetened cocoa powder (I like to get mine from Trader Joe’s)
1/2 Cup of plain greek yogurt… this is optional but adds extra protein.
1/8 tsp Salt…. yes this really does impact flavor in my opinion
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
1/4 tsp almond extract (optional)
1/4 tsp Coconut extract (optional)
1 1/2 TBS of chopped almonds (1/2 Blue container)
2 TBS Chocolate Shakeology (or protein powder) Gluten Free, GMO free and all natural products.. can’t beat that!
If you use the Shakeology I find that I don’t need any sweetener… if you do, I add a little liquid stevia.
I really like adding a tsp of Chia seeds.. but it’s not really needed to make the recipe work!
Ok Here comes the SUPER EASY PART!!!
Toss all of this in a mason jar, or tupperware with a top, cover with the lid, mix it up and set it in the fridge overnight. This is good for about 2 days, so if you don’t get to it tomorrow… eat it the next day!
I refrigerate overnight usually but you could let it just sit for an hour or so until the oats absorb the liquid or microwave for 60 seconds and eat warm..
for my running friends.. this is a favorite of mine post run!
