Chocolate Overnight Oats Recipe
Have you been enjoying any adventurous winter activities this year? I have officially become obsessed with all things winter! Our recent skiing adventure was a much needed weekend getaway after the holidays.
Not wanting to miss out on any of the fun, I wanted to keep up with my energetic son and hubby, who is an experienced skier. We needed a filling breakfast that would pack an energy punch and be great to grab and get on the slopes early. Overnight Oats is the perfect breakfast to prep for busy mornings, and I added protein to satisfy and recover from our adventures.
So today I thought I would share a high protein overnight oats recipe that you can use to get your morning started right or a little recovery from a good workout. Overnight Oats are super simple to put together and then top with your favorite fruit, nuts, and spices.
Now, let’s get to the overnight oats recipe.
How Do You Make Overnight Oats?
It’s extremely simple! I have made this recipe hundreds of times at home for busy school mornings, and it is always delicious. In a jar or bowl, mix together ¼ cup of old-fashioned oats, ¼ cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt (I use vanilla), 1 ½ tsp of chia seeds, and ⅓ cup of milk or a protein shake for extra protein. You can also subsitute almond milk or coconut milk. Then topped with fresh bananas, strawberries, and a few nuts. Feel free to experiment with all sorts of combinations.
This recipe makes about 1 cup of oats. I like more fruit in mine, but you could also serve a double helping like in the photos if you don’t want as much fruit.
Now you have a delicious and easy recipe!
