When it starts to get hot out I love having a cool breakfast to start the day!
Overnight oats are easy to prepare for a quick breakfast and super portable for work, school or the beach! I am going to share a basic recipe as well as a few ways to personalize it for taste and nutrition goals.
Basic Overnight Oats Recipe for 1
1/2 cup old fashioned oats (can be gluten free or regular)
3/4 cup milk ( I prefer a plant based milk such as unsweetened vanilla almond milk here but any milk will work)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp date syrup or maple syrup (optional)
1 tbsp whole chia seeds
1 scoop protein powder
Combine all ingredients together in a mason jar or small to go container and shake to combine. Put in fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight until set! Stir and enjoy!
Cut up fruit-berries, peaches, cooked apples, banana, kiwi etc
Get creative and have fun with toppings!
I typically prep enough for 3 days at a time so that I can just grab and go or grab and eat!
I also prep my toppings-wash fruit, make a container of seeds etc at the same time.
If you need containers to mix your overnight oats in I highly suggest purchasing a few Talenti Gelato flavors..enjoying them and then repurposing the containers for your overnight oats and toppings. They are legit the perfect size..and the ice cream is AMAZING! I highly recommend the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup YUM!!!!
