My Go-To Overnight Oat Recipes

This is a short recipe share – I really have become addicted to overnight oats!!

I tried it once with steel-cut oats and didn’t love it, but once I invested in rolled oats, HOLY MAMA!

There are so many great recipes out there, but because I follow IIFYM (if it fits your macros) I really count every item that goes into it so it’s not a massive calorie bomb.

These are my three go-to recipes for this delicious breakfast!

Banana & PB

  • 1/2 cup of rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp of chia seeds
  • 1 scoop of protein powder
  • 1/2 cup of any milk (I use almond milk)
  • 1 tbsp of smooth natural PB
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • 1/2 tbsp of honey (optional: I don’t like mine too sweet!)

Put all the dry ingredients in a mason jar and the pour the milk in last. Lid it and shake it, then refrigerate overnight. Top with banana and PB before eating.

Vanilla Matcha

  • 1/2 cup of rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp of chia seeds
  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
  • 1/2 cup of any milk
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp of matcha powder
  • 1/2 tbsp of honey (optional)

Whisk the matcha separately with a little bit of milk to start, then continually add the milk little by little, whisking till there’s no chunks of matcha.

Mix all your dry ingredients, vanilla extract, and honey, then add matcha milk, lid and shake. Refrigerate overnight.

Pumpkin Spice Oats

  • 1/2 cup of rolled oats
  • 1 tsp of chia seeds
  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
  • 1/2 cup of any milk
  • 1/4 cup (or more) canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 tsp of pumpkin spice
  • 1/2 tbsp of honey (optional)

Mix oats, chia seeds, and protein powder together first, add milk then stir. Add canned pumpkin, spice and honey. Lid, shake, and refridgerate!

Let me know if you try any of these recipes! You can always add a little it more milk to each before consuming if you like it a bit thinner.

Thanks!
