The best way to stay on track is to be prepared and there is no easier breakfast than overnight oats. You can prepare them ahead of time for a few days. I recommend to make it for 3-4 days and then make a second batch for the rest of the week or make a large batch and freeze some of them as the oats can get mushy when you soak them for more than 4 days. They get softer each day and typically are best after day 2. You can remove the greek yogurt and just add more plant milk (about 2.5 cups total roughly) but keep in mind that it will reduce some of the protein content if you go that route. Refrigerate for up to 5 days.
Blueberry Overnight Oats
Recipe makes 3 servings
Time: 5 minutes active, 8 hours cooling time
1 1/2 cups Rolled Oats
1 scoop TRU Blueberry Muffin Protein Powder
1 tbsp Chia Seeds
1 cup frozen Blueberries
1 1/2 cups Plant Milk, unsweetened
1 cup Greek Yogurt
1 tbsp Maple Syrup
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/8 tsp Sea Salt
1) Mix oats, protein powder and chia seeds together in a bowl.
2) Add all other ingredients and mix until combined. Divide into 3 16oz wide mouth mason jars.
3) Store in the fridge overnight (8 hours or more). I recommend to shake them up once during that duration to avoid the oats to settle in the bottom of the jar.
4) Enjoy cold or heat up in the microwave in 30 seconds increments until warm (make sure to remove the lid when heating).
