This healthy recipe for fruity protein-packed overnight oats is a slam dunk breakfast food -- easy to set up and ready to go right in the morning, or lunch if you prefer.
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats, not instant
3/4 cup milk of choice
1 - 2 scoops of vanilla protein powder (~25g)
1/2 Tablespoon chia seeds
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional, but recommended)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Mixed berries/granola to taste
Prep oats: Combine all ingredients except the toppings in a small container.
Soak: Cover the container with a lid and place it in the fridge overnight (or at least 2-3 hours).
Stir: Bring out of the fridge in the morning and stir. You’ll notice that the protein powder, oats, and chia seeds soak up a lot of the liquid so you may want to add a little more almond milk or water before serving.
Add toppings and enjoy: Top with as many mixed berries and pieces of granola as you want and enjoy! This is my personal go-to combo, never disappoints.
Serving: 1 serving without toppings
This breakfast has great macros that can be super helpful when trying to chase your goals. I hope you get a chance to use this recipe because it's so tasty and ready to take on the go anywhere.
