Chocolate Protein Overnight Oats

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by REBBL, but all opinions are my own.  Thanks for supporting the brands that I love!

I work out a couple hours almost every morning, so I need a satisfying breakfast that can carry me through that workout.  One of my favorite breakfasts is overnight oats.  They are easy and require no cooking at all.  This new Chocolate Protein Overnight Oats makes the perfect pre-workout meal. For more overnight oats ideas, check out this post.

The thing that makes this recipe high protein is the REBBL Dark Chocolate Protein coconut milk elixir.  The protein component comes from all natural ingredients like peas, sunflower seeds and pumpkin.  I LOVE that. Most protein drinks on the market have many undesirable ingredients + they use soy as the protein source.  REBBL drinks are soy free, dairy free, vegan and gluten free!

No Bake Oat Cookies

The other day, I saw this video on Facebook.  It was the inspiration for these No Bake Oat Cookies. My recipe is not only healthier than the original, it is also vegan.  Yay!  And really, who doesn’t like a no bake cookie?  You can literally whip these delectable cookies up in just a matter of minutes.

White Chocolate Banana Cookies

We are about to head to Disney World for vacation, and I am trying to use up what I have on hand.  That’s how these White Chocolate Banana Cookies came about. I had some leftover vegan white chocolate chips from my White Chocolate Raspberry Squares, so I thought this was a perfect way to use them up.  After all, white chocolate and banana go so well together!  If you can’t find vegan white chocolate chips, you can most definitely use regular chocolate chips instead.  Macadamia nuts may also by another yummy option.  The best part about this recipe is it has just 4 simple ingredients!

These cookies are vegan, gluten free and healthy enough for breakfast!  The optional add ins are endless.  I think some shredded coconut would be delish in here personally.  Then again, I love all things coconut.

No Bake Oat Bars (Vegan and Gluten Free)

I have a new snack idea for you today.  This one is No Bake Oat Bars.  For this recipe, I was inspired by my homemade nutri-grain bars.

I wanted to make a similar recipe that requires less work and ingredients.  This easy oat bar recipe only call for a few simple ingredients.  I love that. So you probably have the ingredients to make them already.  You can use whatever flavor jam you like.

This recipe is also nut free.  If you like fruit bars, you may also like my blueberry oat bars.

Flourless Pumpkin Muffins

The other day I made some Flourless Apple Muffins.  They came out really well.  As soon as I made them, I knew I wanted to make a pumpkin version.  So I am bringing you these Flourless Pumpkin Muffins.  They came out totally delicious.  No flour and no refined sugar.  I added some cranberries for a little burst of flavor.  You can also add chocolate chips or raisins if you prefer. I also think pecans would be a nice addition.  I didn’t add them because my baby girl is allergic.
