These protein-packed overnight oats are a creamy and wholesome breakfast or snack option. They are quick and easy to prepare, requiring just 5 minutes of prep time. Each jar of these overnight oats contains over 20 grams of protein, making them a satisfying and nutritious choice to start your day. Here’s how to make them:
- 1 cup old fashioned oats (not quick oats)
- 1 cup milk of your choice (dairy or dairy-free)
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds (optional)
- 1 scoop (about 30 grams) Healthy Heights Protein Powder (vanilla or chocolate)
- 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup (or sweetener of your choice)
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (or a pinch of nutmeg)
- Nut butter
- Chocolate chips
- Fresh or dried fruit
- Greek yogurt (for a thicker option)
- In a mixing bowl, combine the oats, milk, chia seeds (if using), Healthy Heights Protein Powder, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Stir well to ensure all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
- Divide the mixture evenly into three glass jars with lids, then securely close the lids.
- Refrigerate the jars for at least 4 hours, but they can also be left for up to 72 hours to achieve a thicker consistency.
- When ready to enjoy, remove the lid and add your desired toppings, such as nut butter, nuts, chocolate chips, or fruit.
- Opt for old fashioned rolled oats instead of instant oats, as they provide a better texture and absorb more liquid.
- If you require gluten-free options, make sure to use certified gluten-free oats.
- For optimal creaminess, refrigerate the oats for at least 4 hours, or longer if desired.
- Feel free to customize your overnight oats by adding your favorite toppings and flavors, such as Greek yogurt or additional protein sources like nuts or nut butter.
- Store the jars of oats in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Avoid freezing them.
