Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 cup rolled oats (use gluten-free, if necessary)
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 scoops unsweetened protein powder
  • 2 teaspoons raw honey or maple syrup (for vegan)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup fresh or frozen and defrosted blueberries
  • Zest of one lemon
  • Optional toppings: drizzle of nut butter or sprinkling of chopped almonds or other nut or seed

Instructions

  1. In a jar or bowl with a lid, combine the rolled oats, almond milk, chia seeds, protein powder, sweetener of choice, vanilla extract, blueberries, and lemon zest.
  2. Stir to combine.
  3. Cover the bowl or jar and place the oatmeal mixture in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or up to 24 hours.
  4. When you’re ready to serve the overnight oats, simply stir the mixture and serve cold or at room temperature. You can serve it plain or with additional toppings.

Notes
