Chocolate PB Overnight Protein Oats 
Vegan, GF, RSF, DF
Serves 1 
Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (if Celiac use certified GF oats)
  • 1 serving chocolate protein powder (whichever you prefer) 
  • 1/2 cup almond, soy (or any non-dairy milk)
  • 1 heaped TBS all-natural peanut butter (see notes **) 
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries 
  • 1 TBS chia seeds 
  • 1 TBS unhulled hemp seeds 
  • A few slices of banana (to serve) 
  • One clean, glass jar w/ lid 
Method:
  1. Place all ingredients (except banana and blueberries) in a clean, glass jar and mix well.
  2. If the mixture is too dry, add more milk or water (note: the mixture should be runny with room to swell and thicken once chilled). 
  3. Seal with lid and place in the fridge overnight (or at least 30 minutes). 
  4. Remove from fridge, place in a bowl or keep in the jar, top with fruit. 
  5. Eat and enjoy! 
NOTES: 
* This recipe works best when left to thicken and chill. We recommend preparing the night before for best results and an easy, grab-n-go breakfast. 
** If allergic to peanuts, or dislike peanut butter, substitute ingredient for another nut butter of choice. Almond butter works well as an alternative.

Nutrient/ Vitamin

 

Ingredient

 

Hair Benefit

Carbohydrate

Oats 

Carbohydrates are your bodies preferred source of energy used to create new cells. Ensuring you fuel your body with healthy wholegrains, such as oats, maintains your bodies energy levels and promotes consistent hair growth.

 Iron

 Oats

Iron is a key nutrient in preventing hair loss and encouraging hair growth. Iron is used by the body to transport oxygen through the blood to cells. These same cells are the cells used in the creation of new hair follicles.

In reverse, a lack of iron, leading to a lack of oxygen in the cells, causes hair loss as hair follicles can no longer grow or survive.

 Omega3

Chia Seeds, Hemp Seeds

Omega3s, a critical micronutrient of fat, are vital to ensuring your hair is elastic and supple all year round. The fatty acid chains in Omega3s are readily absorbed by the body and prevent dry/flakey scalps.

 

Protein

Protein Powder, Peanut Butter and Soy Milk (if using)

 

Hair is predominately made up of a type of protein called Keratin. Because of this, it relies on extra protein to maintain tensile strength and keep sufficient elasticity.

Did you know peanut butter and soy milk are fantastic sources of plant-based protein? They and can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes!
