These Tiramisu Protein Overnight Oats are one of my favourite healthy make ahead breakfast recipes for busy mornings when I’m craving something sweet.
I never knew I loved coffee so much until I became a mom. I’m now officially obsessed with coffee. And for days when drinking my coffee is just not enough, I like to find ways to eat it too. Introducing my tiramisu protein overnight oats, a crazy delicious healthy make ahead breakfast recipe that feels super indulgent and yet is a sinch to pull off.
How to Make Tiramisu Protein Overnight Oats
I love overnight oats because I can make a huge batch, throw them into the fridge and have a healthy breakfast all week long. And for days I’m feeling particularly indulgent, these tiramisu protein overnight oats fit the bill. The hallmarks of a good tiramisu are mascarpone cheese, lady fingers, chocolate and of course, coffee. Yes, you could enjoy all of these things separately for breakfast, but together, in an instagrammable mason jar, it just feels so right. I love mixing the traditional mascarpone cheese with some high protein cottage cheese that I’ve blitzed in the food processor or blender until creamy and smooth. Mixed with some high fibre oats, it’s a seriously satisfying breakfast.
And of course, you can’t forget the coffee. A quick dip for my lady finger cookies in some coffee yields just enough of a bitter bite to compliment the uber creamy overnight oats mixture. These tiramisu protein overnight oats prove that you can eat cake for breakfast and feel DAMN good about it.
