Nut butter: Creamy almond or peanut butter is a great option for these oats to make them super creamy, filling, and nutty in flavor. The nut butter pairs perfectly with the chocolate flavors.
Cocoa powder: Cocoa or cacao powder give these oats rich flavors of tasty chocolate. If you are dairy-free, be sure to double-check the label to make sure there is no dairy.
Protein powder: Use either whey or plant-based chocolate protein powder for this recipe. If you are vegan, then you will want to use your favorite vegan protein powder. The protein powder gives these oats a boost of extra filling protein.
Dairy-free milk: Your choice of smooth dairy-free milk combines all of the ingredients and makes them light and indulgent. Almond, oat, hemp, cashew, or soy are all great milk options.
Chocolate chips: Either dark or milk chocolate chips are great for these oats. The chocolate chips provide extra rich chocolate flavors that you will love.
