2 tbsp raw cacao powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon

*feel free to mix and match toppings or add some steel cut oats with toppings. However, protein profile is based on these exact ingredients.
This recipe gives you 23 grams of protein! If you choose to forgo the collagen powder, add an extra tablespoon of chia which still gives you 16g.
Five Fabulous reasons to add Collagen powder:
*An easy way to get 9 extra grams of protein in your meal, with no added sugars or flavours often added to many protein powder blends. No taste detected.
*Soothe and repair your digestive tract if you suffer from digestive health conditions, like IBS.
*Firm, revitalize and smooth skin.
*Reduce stiff and painful joints from Arthritis. Build more collagen to support joint health.
*Last but not least, soothe your nervous system, sending both calming and motivational signals derived from its amino acid profile. For highly anxious individuals getting high dose protein is especially essential at breakfast to help your adrenal glands and stress hormone output chill the f#%k out so you can feel more at ease about tackling your day.
