I may be late to the overnight oats game but almond butter overnight oats are the perfect breakfast for someone on the go. Making them before an early morning photo shoot is so easy. I can just grab them from the fridge and eat them while I inevitably sit in Los Angeles traffic. My overnight oats recipe includes a bit more milk than is found in most recipes. This way it that it is more similar to the consistency of a smoothie rather than a hot oatmeal breakfast eaten with a spoon. I also add chia seeds and protein powder to help keep me full longer.
Oats – When choosing your oats be sure to use old-fashioned rolled oats, not quick or instant oats. The latter will become gooey when left to sit in this overnight oat recipe.
Protein powder – While you can use whatever protein powder you would like I really like a neutral-flavored animal based collagen protein powder. I recommend VitalProteins (not sponsored, I just really like the product!).
How to Make Overnight Oats
Add the dry ingredients to a jar. Pour the rolled oats, chia seeds and protein powder to a 16-ounce mason jar.
Add the wet ingredients. Add the milk, honey and almond butter then shake to combine.
Refrigerate overnight. Refrigerate overnight. Shake to combine and serve cold.
Garnish if desired or serve plain. Garnish with assorted fruit, edible flowers and bee pollen if desired or serve the overnight oats on its own.
Tips and Tricks for This Recipe
While you can serve the overnight oats by themselves for when you are on the go, you can also serve them as a “sit down” breakfast.
For this, I top the oat mixture with seasonal fruit, edible flowers and some bee pollen for a nutritious, filling and pretty morning meal.
If I’m skipping toppings then like using a large plastic bottle with a wide spout so it can easily be taken on the go.
