Overnight Oats

There has been a lot of hype on my IG account (@morethanmommmy) about overnight oats, and for good reason! Here’s everything you need to know…

Overnight oats have become a staple in my weekly meals. Overnight oats are the perfect pre-prepped meal for breakfast or lunch. They are quick, easy, portable, and PACKED with protein and super foods!

The flavour combinations to be created are endless, so experiment with your own personal favourite fruits and flavours!

Below I will outline the recipe needed for the base of overnight oats. I will also give you the recipes for 3 of my favourite flavours so far.

Remember! Overnight oats are a personal preference- change things up to your own liking!

The most important thing to figure out is your “base”. For me that is:

•1/2 cup oats

•1/3-1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

•1 tablespoon Greek yogurt .

Chocolate Cherry Overnight Oats!

aprox 330 calories and over 40grams protein

Additional ingredients: (on top of base)

•1 scoop chocolate Diesel New Zealand Whey Isolate (or your choice of chocolate protein powder)

•0.5-1 cup frozen cherries

•{optional} Skinny Girl sweetener

•{optional} cocoa powder

Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats

Additional ingredients:

•1 scoop Vanilla or Peanut Butter Protein Powder

•Fresh banana (as much as you like. For me that’s about 2/3 of a medium sized banana)

•1-2 tablespoons of PB2 (high protein powdered peanut butter) AND/OR 1-2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter

•1-2 tablespoons of pure maple syrup

Strawberry Overnight Oats: (so simple, but my favorite)

• 1 scoop vanilla protein powder

•1/2 cup sliced strawberries

•2-4 tablespoons pure maple syrup

And don’t forget to add all of your favourite super foods! Some of my staples are:

hemp hearts

•chia seeds

•Salba seeds

•flax seed/flax seed oil

Once you’ve added all of your ingredients to your mason jar, put the lid on and shake it up well (some recipes require a little stirring)

Place your overnight oats in the fridge overnight, and enjoy in the morning! I personally love to heat them up and add a touch of maple syrup… (my husband likes it straight from the fridge)

PREPARE TO BE OBSESSED!
