Protein Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are a popular oats recipe for meal prep. However, as delicious and easy as they are, they are often missing some protein for a one and done meal and you typically have to have some eggs or something else on the side.

For this healthy overnight oats recipe, I used a scoop of plant-based vanilla protein powder (I used this one) but you can also mix in protein sources like plain greek yogurt, cottage cheese, or ricotta cheese.

What Kind of Oats to Use for Overnight Oats

To make overnight oatmeal, it’s best to use rolled oats (also known as old fashioned oats).

These oats absorb the liquid to the point where they’re soft but not mushy (like quick oats). To add even more texture you can make overnight oats with chia seeds as well (like I did with this recipe).

What to Make Overnight Oats In

I prefer to make and store overnight oats in a jar, more specifically a mason jar.

They’re easy to store and transport which makes them my favorite but you can also mix it up in a bowl or any reusable food container.

Do whatever works best for you. There is no right or wrong way of doing this.

Hot or Cold?

I put a story on Instagram asking who prefers cold oatmeal vs hot oatmeal when it came to their favorite overnight oatmeal recipes.

The majority of the answers preferred warm.

You can serve it however you prefer. Either take it straight from the fridge and eat it or microwave it for a minute and serve it that way. This is why I love mason jars.

Are Overnight Oats Healthy?

As with most recipes, protein overnight oats being healthy depends on what you mix in. Whole foods like fruit, honey, etc … sure.

Mixing oats with chocolate syrup a ton of peanut butter, not so much. It’s important to remember portion sizes (1 tablespoon vs 1/4 cup) and to be mindful of how much sugar is added.

Oats are also one of the foods that give you skin that glows.

Tip: Apple sauce is a great addition to help sweeten your oatmeal.

  1. Hi! This recipe looks great. I don’t think this recipe is 2 servings though? 1/4 cup oats for 1 serving seems a little low. If this is the recipe for one serving, the nutrition info will be off too.

    1. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I just double-checked. 1/4-1/3 cup of oats is what I typically do for my breakfasts as I tend to add protein powders, fruit, etc in addition to a slice of toast I may have too. You are more than welcome to add more, just add a bit more liquid ❤️
