Start your mornings with a nourishing and protein-rich breakfast by making these delicious Healthy Heights Protein Overnight Oats. These oats are creamy, filling, and take only 5 minutes to prepare. Packed with over 20 grams of protein per jar, they are the perfect choice for a quick and healthy breakfast or snack. Here's how to make them:
- 1 cup old fashioned oats (not quick oats)
- 1 cup milk of your choice (dairy or dairy-free)
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds (optional)
- 1 scoop (about 30 grams) Healthy Heights Protein Powder (vanilla or chocolate)
- 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup (or sweetener of your choice)
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (or a pinch of nutmeg)
- Nut butter
- Fresh or dried fruits
- Nuts or seeds
- Shredded coconut
- Dark chocolate chips
- Greek yogurt
- In a mixing bowl, combine the oats, milk, chia seeds (if using), Healthy Heights Protein Powder, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Stir well until all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
- Divide the mixture equally into three glass jars with lids, ensuring that each jar is tightly sealed.
- Place the jars in the refrigerator and let them chill for at least 4 hours, or overnight. This will allow the oats to absorb the liquid and develop a creamy texture.
- When you're ready to enjoy, remove the lid from the jar and add your favorite toppings, such as nut butter, fresh or dried fruits, nuts or seeds, shredded coconut, dark chocolate chips, or a dollop of Greek yogurt.
- Use old fashioned rolled oats for the best results, as they provide a pleasant texture and absorb the liquid well.
- If you follow a gluten-free diet, make sure to use certified gluten-free oats.
- For a thicker consistency, add an extra tablespoon of chia seeds or decrease the amount of milk.
- Feel free to customize your overnight oats by experimenting with different Healthy Heights Protein Powder flavors or adding additional spices like nutmeg or vanilla extract.
- Store the jars of oats in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. However, for the best taste and texture, it's recommended to consume them within 2 days.
Enjoy the convenience and health benefits of these protein-packed Healthy Heights Protein Overnight Oats. They are a fantastic way to kick-start your day with a nutritious and satisfying meal.
