Units Scale

Overnight Oats

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk or regular milk
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy yogurt or regular yogurt (optional, but recommended)
  • 1 scoop protein powder (vanilla, chocolate, or any flavor)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (or honey, agave, etc)

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Toppings (Optional)

  1. Add rolled oats, milk, yogurt, protein powder, maple syrup, chia seeds, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt to a jar. Mix ingredients together, then seal with a lid.
  2. Store oats in the refrigerator overnight (or at least 4 hours).
  3. The next morning (or whenever you are ready to eat), remove the lid and stir the oats. If desired, add a splash of milk to thin the consistency.
