Oatmeal is great because there are so many ways you can change it up, add to it or mix up the flavor depending on the season or what mood you are in. In the summer I make overnight oats when I want something light and fruity. I add extra protein to my oats to make them even more filling and then I can swap my morning protein shake.

Oatmeal is one of the healthiest foods you can eat for breakfast. It’s loaded with nutrients and full of fiber. It can help control your blood sugar and helps keep your cholesterol low.

What Are Overnight Oats?

Overnight oats are a healthy raw breakfast recipe that consists of soaking rolled oats in milk overnight in the fridge. It has a similar texture to oatmeal, except it’s uncooked and preserves all the nutrients and healthy properties of the ingredients as no heat is involved.

Ingredients Needed

  • Dry rolled oats
  • 1 scoop of protein powder
  • Chia seeds
  • Almond milk (or any type of milk you like)

Optional Ingredients

  • Fruit like blueberries or raspberries
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Peanut Butter
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Nuts
  • Granola
  • Honey


  • Add oats, protein powder and chia seeds into a small bowl.
  • Add almond milk.
  • Stir until blended.
  • If the fruit you are adding is frozen add it now so it has time to thaw overnight.
  • Place in the fridge and leave overnight or at least 6 hours

The oats and chia seeds will soak up the milk, creating a creamy, delicious oatmeal thats perfect to grab and go on a busy morning.
