Protein Overnight Oats
My husband found this protein overnight oats recipe through weight watchers and it tasted more like a dessert than a breakfast. We have since made some adjustments, and we both have slight variations. We have both joined weight watchers and the recipes have been great.
This recipe has become a base recipe that we have made changes and adjustments to. This is a great breakfast that we are able to make in advance and have ready in the fridge for a few days. We usually make smoothies in the morning but on occasion when we do not get up on time or we just don’t feel like having a smoothie.
We are always prepared though, knowing the oats will be a great tasting healthy breakfast. Also, oats are zero points for me on the weight watchers purple plan, so I definitely add extra oats. I’m going to give you the version of the recipe that I make on the purple plan.
Protein Overnight Oats Recipe
1 cup quick oats
½ scoop Sunwarrior Plant-based Protein Powder – Chocolate (Vanilla also available)
¾ cup Chocolate Almond Milk (Or Original Almond Milk)
½ tablespoon of cacao powder (Or Hershey’s 100% cocoa powder)
1 banana cut into slices
1 stevia packet
(Optional – I like shredded coconut on occasion)
1: Mix all ingredients well and store in mason jar or container overnight.
2: The next morning its ready to go, just don’t forget your spoon.
Also, there have been nights where my craving for chocolate/dessert has hit the roof and these chocolate oats are there to the rescue.
Lastly, this protein oats recipe is so great and makes for a quick morning breakfast for busy people on the go. If you have favorite ingredients that you add to your oats share them in the comments.
Sending you love, light, peace, and prayer. Remember that life is like a buffet, take what serves you, and leave what may harm you behind…
