To make chocolate overnight oats, you truly only need a few ingredients, minutes and steps.
First, as with most recipes, assemble the ingredients. Here we have:
protein powder (I would recommend a plain whey protein but for the vegans you could use soy protein)
maple syrup or agave syrup
You stir all of this together in a small container, let it chill in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight and then eat.
If you want them warm, you can certainly microwave overnight oats, just watch carefully since oats can easily overflow in the microwave.
