I've always loved oatmeal, but don't always have the time to make it in the morning. I recently discovered overnight oats, which allow me to enjoy a bowl of oatmeal-like goodness without having to cook anything. It's easy, delicious and customizable!
¾ cup almond milk
½ cup oats
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons chia seeds
2 tablespoons agave nectar
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 cup frozen blueberries
Mix almond milk, oats, peanut butter, chia seeds, agave, and protein powder in a bowl until well combined. Oats are a whole grain food that can be eaten raw or cooked as oatmeal, porridge or as part of other dishes like pancakes or waffles. You can also use Greek yogurt for extra protein and thickness (and a sweetener).
Refrigerate overnight. Wait for it to do it's magic overnight and enjoy in the morning!
If you're looking for an easy way to add more protein and fiber, try these delicious additions!
Add your favorite fresh fruits like bananas or apples. You can also add dried fruits like raisins and cranberries.
Add nuts: Nuts are high in antioxidants and contain healthy fats that can help stabilize blood sugar levels by helping us burn fat instead of carbohydrates (a source of energy). They're also loaded with fiber which helps us feel fuller longer so we don't overeat later on when we eat something else later on in the day!
