The protein powder kind of sunk to the bottom so next time I think I need either less liquid or more oats…But it still tasted great.

Pair with fruit or peanut butter  for an awesome breakfast, snack, or post workout snack!

So I finished off a jar of crunchy peanut butter to have just the perfect breakfast yesterday!  Nobody left behind in this jar!
