A super simple recipe that is low in fat high in protein and is an excellent filler for breakfast. This is one of my favorite recipes. As it only takes 10 mins to do and it basically does the rest during the night. Keep in mind this is just one of the options to make overnight oats. There are a ton of combinations that can be used to make this. Customize it to your liking and I am sure it will not fail. Here is a quick step by step guide on how to make it.
- Rolled Oats or Steel Cut Oats (1 cup – 1 1/2 cups)
- 1 cup liquid of your choice (Milk, Almond Milk, Juice, Yogurt)
- Dried fruits mixture
Optional: Protein Powder
1. First, mix rolled oats with an equal amount of your liquid of choice. You can use any combination of dairy or non-dairy milk, yogurt, or even juice; just stick with the same basic 1:1 ratio. If you’re using steel cut oats instead, use more liquid and be prepared to do some chewing. You can also add protein powder to add extra protein to your oats and you can also add 0% low fat yogurt.
2. Mix any spices, sweeteners, or dried fruit you like into the oats and milk.
3. Store in a glass jar or another airtight container and let the oats soak for at least three hours, ideally overnight. A nifty breakfast hack to try: Mix the oats in a nearly-empty peanut (or almond) butter jar.
4. In the morning, you can add fresh fruit, nuts, and other favorite toppings to your oatmeal.( I personally like to do this the night before as it merges with my oats)
