Overnight Oats

So I finally got on the bandwagon for overnight oats.  Since I have to be at work at 6 am, I’m always looking for the easiest, yet most filling breakfast option that I can eat on the run.  Let’s be h0nest, no one likes waking up and cooking breakfast at 4:30 am.  I was eating breakfast sandwiches a lot, but I decided that I was sick of those and then overnight oats came to the rescue.  I love it for three reasons:

1.  I love oatmeal

2. It’s filling and I’m not starving 1 hour later.  I actually don’t need to eat until 10 when I get off work.

3. All the prep work is the night before (about 3 minutes worth), so all I do is grab it in the morning and it’s ready to eat.

There are obvious 100 ways to make this and since I’ve only had this a few times, I’ve only made it two ways.  I make chocolate and vanilla… very simplistic.

Vanilla Wins I think

Overnight Oats

1/2 c Almond Milk

1/2 c Oats

3/4 scoop protein powder

Sprinkle Chia seeds

1 tsp. cocoa powder (if making chocolate)

All you do is combine the ingredients, stir and put it in the refrigerator. How wonderful:)
