Two a days… what’s going on here? Don’t worry, I doubt it will become a “thing”… just wanted to share with you this delicious oatmeal you guys seemed to really like on IG (<—-check it out for behind the scenes action).
It’s perfect for those of you that need a higher protein, higher carb recovery meal post run or endurance training. The extra protein and healthy fat also ups the filling factor so runger doesn’t get a hold of you! #rungerisreal

Chocolate Sun Butter Recovery Oats
- 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder can be whatever brand, you may want to use a full scoop if you need the extra protein
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup milk I used unsweetened cashew milk
- 1-2 T sun butter (you’ll want a sweeter one or you may need to add stevia depending on taste preference)
- 1 T granola
- 1/2 banana for topping
- Mix protein, oats, and milk. Let sit for at least 1 hour in the fridge, or overnight to make it “overnight oats.”
- Heat for 1-2 minutes in the microwave (if desired can be eaten cold, but your sun butter won’t melt.”
