I believe I’ve discovered the missing link to creating delicious overnight oatmeal.
The secret is protein powder.
I now have in my pantry a big jar filled with fudge brownie flavored protein powder. Add a little almond milk and I have a refreshing post-workout treat.
Then it dawned on me, what if I added rolled oats to my protein shake?
I’ve been searching for a go-to healthy breakfast option for a really long time. And for some particular reason I really want that healthy breakfast to include rolled oats. It’s been a bit of an obsession of mine for the past two years.
What I love about this recipe is how simple it is and how diverse and plentiful the flavor profile possibilities are going forward.
When I tire of fudge brownie I’ll switch to classic vanilla, and when I tire of classic vanilla I’ll switch to chocolate peanut butter or orange dreamsicle or cinnamon bun.
I can add dried cranberries or chocolate chips or chopped up walnuts as a flavor garnish.
I may even experiment with microwaving the overnight oatmeal in the mornings when I want something to warm me up from the inside out.
The key is to find a protein powder flavor that you like.
I find this breakfast to be not only delicious, but also satiating.
With only 3 ingredients, it’s quickly become my new favorite breakfast choice.
- 1 cup of rolled oats
- 1 cup of almond milk
- 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder
Using a shaker bottle, add 1 cup of almond milk and one scoop of protein powder. Shake vigorously until there are no more protein powder clumps.
Add the rolled oats.
Refrigerate for 8 hours.
