- 1/3 cup old fashioned rolled oats
- 2 Tablespoons powdered peanut butter
- 2 Tablespoons vanilla whey protein powder- preferably grass-fed (look for naturally sweetened with stevia)
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- 1 packet stevia
- 1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1/3 cup plain 0% Greek yogurt
- 1-2 teaspoons grape juice reduction syrup**
- Combine all ingredients except grape juice syrup in a Mason jar or glass container with lid. Set soak for several hours or overnight. When ready to serve place 1-2 teaspoons (or a little extra) of the grape syrup in a sandwich sized zipper bag. Cup a small hole off of one corner and pipe on your heart design or just drizzle it and have fun.
- **To make the grape reduction syrup: Pour 1 cup 100% Concord grape juice into a small saucepan and bring to a boil, let simmer for around 45 minutes, stirring occasionally until the grape juice easily coats a spoon. (It will thicken more once allowed to cool) Take care not to allow it to burn! Place in a small container in the refrigerator- you will end up with approximately ¼ cup. Use 1-2 teaspoons for this recipe and save the rest for later.
- If you do not wish to make the grape reduction, simply top the recipe with a small amount of low sugar grape jelly or all fruit spread.
