One of the simplest ways to start the day is with high protein overnight oats, especially if you don’t have time to prepare a substantial meal before leaving the house. These oats are loaded with a whopping 37 grammes of protein! They are ideal for making meals in advance and help you feel satiated for longer.
Greek yoghurt and protein powder are both used in these protein-fortified overnight oats to up the protein content.

What makes “high protein” in these overnight oats?

This recipe almost entirely contains excellent sources of protein. To begin with, a half cup of traditional oats has around 5 grammes of protein on its own. Greek yoghurt, chia seeds, and protein powder are all excellent sources of protein. You may also get more protein by include nut butters like peanut butter for peanut butter overnight oats.

ingredients required to make these high protein overnight oats :

  • Old-fashioned oats (rolled oats) are the main attraction in this dish. They soak up all the liquid over night while remaining in their oat shape when combined with milk and yoghurt, preventing them from becoming mushy as you often get with cooked oatmeal. To make this dish gluten-free, use rolled oats that are free of gluten.
  • Greek yoghurt is a fantastic source of protein; I used non-fat varieties and usually choose the plain or vanilla varieties.
  • Adding protein powder to your oatmeal is a fantastic way to get more protein. There are certain protein powders out there that just don’t taste good, and they won’t taste well in the oatmeal, so make sure you use one that you love and appreciate!
  • Chia seeds: After soaking in the liquid for the entire night, these seeds give a tonne of nutrients and make the oats extremely creamy.

step-by-step instructions :

Step 1: Combine the chia seeds, protein powder, and oats in a Tupperware or Mason jar.
Step 2: Add the yoghurt, milk, and honey. Mix thoroughly, being careful to stir up any protein powder pieces that may have settled to the bottom.
Step 3: Cover with a cover and refrigerate for at least 5 hours or overnight.
Step 4: Add additional flavouring ingredients

flavors to try :

  • Use chocolate protein powder while preparing the overnight oats for the chocolate peanut butter banana recipe. Slice some bananas and stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons of peanut butter to your overnight oats. I enjoy adding micro chocolate chips to this variety.
  • Use vanilla protein powder while preparing the overnight oats with peanut butter and jelly. Add 1 tablespoon each of peanut butter and jam—I prefer raspberry—and top with toasted peanuts for added crunch! If you prefer fresh berries over jam, you can do so as well.
  • Use vanilla protein powder while preparing the overnight oats with strawberries and cream. 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence should be added. Add some diced fresh strawberries and whipped cream or cool whip on top!
