3. Spoon mixture into a mixing bowl and stir in oats until all ingredients are well combined.

*These will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to a month.
Notes:

  • To omit protein powder, use 1/4 cup cacao powder in its place. It won't be as sweet so if you want to keep the sweetness, add about 1/4 cup coconut sugar.
