Earlier this week I shared a 30 minute at-home hiit workout with vital proteins paired with some protein packed pre-and-post workout meal ideas. So I thought I’d stick with the trend and share one more collagen protein infused recipe that’s a spin off my 4-ingredient chocolate mousse.

Yes, you can get your chocolate fix for breakfast with these thick, mousse-y, pudding-like overnight oats. Clearly this recipe is a winner if you have kiddos in the household too.

The kids {adult males included}, can literally grab their pre-prepped chocolate mousse overnight oats from the fridge, top with some bananas and berries, and head out the door. Now that’s simple meal prep at it’s finest.

Simply combine gluten-free old fashioned oats, chia seeds, unsweetened almond milk {or milk of choice, I personally love Califia Farms almond milks}, and my previously posted collagen infused chocolate mousse recipe in a large mixing bowl or two separate mason jars {as the recipe below makes two servings}. Mix all ingredients well and pop your bowl or mason jars in the fridge for 6-8 hours {overnight}.

Whether you choose to enjoy your chocolate mousse overnight oats in a warm hearty bowl or cold grab-n-go mason jar; you can rest assured knowing that you and your kids are getting a protein-packed breakfast with no added sugar {despite the sinfully delicious, chocolatey flavor}!
