I have been eating these Overnight Protein Oats almost every morning (or for lunch) for like 6 weeks now! I just love them!! If you've never had overnight oats before imagine a delicious breakfast pudding, like a decadent dessert almost, for breakfast! The oats breakdown overnight and adding chia seeds helps thicken it all up into a nice thick consistency. Add your favorite flavors and you almost feel guilty for eating it in the morning! One morning, my son saw my glass all nice and pretty and oohed and ahhed over it, then I mentioned it was oatmeal and he turned his nose up at it lol. They are not big on oatmeal, silly kids.
I love this in the morning because it will fill me up long enough until lunch. Sometimes I'll have something else for breakfast (for a change) and eat this for lunch!
inspired by Daily Burn , serves 6
3 Cups gluten free oats
4 Cups unsweetened plain almond milk
2 scoops vanilla protein powder
2 TBL chia seeds
1/2 Cup slivered almonds
3 Cups nonfat plain greek yogurt, set aside
Toppings of your choice, berries, peanut butter, almond butter, bananas, nuts etc.
Combine and stir all ingredients except the greek yogurt in a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, grab a pretty serving dish and add 3/4 Cups of overnight oats, top with 1/2 Cup greek yogurt and topping of your choice. Oats are great in the fridge for up to 6 days.
My favorite flavor is peanut butter or almond butter!
