Overnight oats is a recipe based around oatmeal that you don’t have to cook! You simply put some oats in a container, add some type of liquid; non-dairy milk, water, etc. and then add things like protein powder, berries, chia seeds, chocolate chips, nuts, etc. to give it some flavor! The oats absorb the liquid as well as the flavors and you have a healthy, yet filling on the go breakfast in the morning!
With my crazy travel schedule, I like to make this the night before I fly out the next morning. It’s the perfect thing to grab and take with me to the airport (while getting through security just fine) without having to heat anything up in a microwave! I also like to eat this before an intense lift because it has the perfect blend of macro nutrients to give me fuel for a hard workout!
You can also prep a few days of these ahead of time if you have a crazy busy schedule as is. I wouldn’t recommend storing more than 3 days out at a time or it could get a bit soggy!
1/3 c Quick Cooking Oats
1 Scoop Level-1 (my favorite flavor is Cinnamon Cookie Batter)
1 Tbsp. Chia seeds (these expand overnight and make the oats more voluminous!)
1 Tbsp. Powdered Peanut Butter
1 Tbsp. Mini Chocolate Chips
1-2 drops of liquid stevia (not necessary but adds extra flavor)
1/2-3/4 C Almond Milk or any non-dairy milk
Optional Toppings: Banana, berries, walnuts, nut butter, coconut flakes, etc.
In a container (I like a mason jar), add all ingredients listed above. Mix everything together and store in the refrigerator overnight. Take out the next morning and enjoy! Can be eaten cold or heated up, I like mine cold!
Until next time.
Peace & Love,
