Breakfast meal prep: brownie chocolate oatmeal

Spice up your breakfast meal prep routine with this brownie chocolate oatmeal. Complex carbs, healthy fats and protein will keep you satisfied until lunch.

We’re more than halfway through healthy breakfast meal prep month in the Shape University community, have you been joining in?

This all came about because I received a few emails and messages from ladies who asked me to bring back some of the challenges and themed months that I started last year. And you know what they say, ask and you shall receive! 

So far this month we’ve had a heavenly chocolate chia pudding to keep the Easter cravings away, and simple but delicious baked oatmeal muffins to mix up the overnight oat routine.

I find the chocolate chia pudding is an absolute saviour at PMS time in summer. It’s cold and refreshing yet rich and satisfying. But now that the seasons are changing in Australia, sometimes you need something warm. Something that’s gooey and oozing with chocolate flavour to be more precise. 

Enter this brownie chocolate oatmeal recipe that’s perfect for breakfast meal prep. 

Healthy breakfast meal prep featuring chocolate, it’s a thing.  

Like we discussed in week one, chocolate can be part of a nutrient-dense meal. Not only does this recipe hit chocolate cravings on the head, it does so in a nutritious way. In fact, it’s even good enough for breakfast! 

It offers plenty of complex carbohydrates, fibre and protein if you choose to add protein powder or PB2. There’s also a few unique health benefits from the cocoa powder. It contains healthy fats in the form of nuts, coconut flakes and/or cacao nibs is you choose them as toppings. Just make sure you take the extra energy (calorie) content of these into account.

Breakfast meal prep doesn’t have to be boring with this easy chocolate brownie oatmeal recipe.
