Protein-Packed Overnight Oats


  • Author: Elaine Gordon

Description

Overnight oats loaded with plant-based protein, fiber, whole grains and healthy fats. It is the easiest breakfast ever and gives you one less thing to worry about on hurried mornings. I love how filling and satisfying this breakfast is.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1, 5 ounce container unsweetened plant-based yogurt*
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 3/4 cup gluten-free oats
  • 1/4 cup fresh raspberries (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon chia seed
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon blue majik powder (optional for a blue hue and added nutrients)

Instructions

  1. In a large glass lidded jar mix together all the ingredients. Be sure to stir well so all ingredients are distributed evenly.
  2. Cover and place in fridge overnight to allow the oats to soften and the mixture to thicken.
  3. In the morning top with your favorite nut or seed butter, chia jam and fresh berries.

Notes

*I use Greek-style yogurt for more protein and a creamier, thicker texture. From a taste perspective, I prefer non-dairy yogurt made from almonds but you could use coconut milk yogurt for a nut-free version.

Serving suggestions: Before adding your toppings you may wish to warm the overnight oats slightly in the microwave or on your stovetop, I don't mind it chilled straight from the fridge. It is really up to you!
