Chocolate Cherry Breakfast Oats

I don’t know about you but breakfast is my absolute favorite meal!! The options are endless and it’s so much fun to get creative. I never run out of ideas whether it’s a nutrient dense smoothie, scrambled eggs & veggies, protein packed waffles & pancakes, chia pudding or like this big bowl of chocolate cherry breakfast oats. And guess what… there’s egg whites mixed in, a sneaky way to add in extra protein.

This breakfast oats bowl is jammed packed with carbohydrates, fiber, healthy fats & protein.
