The Best Protein Overnight Oats
Written by Sandy Punia 

This easy overnight oats recipe is a healthy simple breakfast that you can make ahead for busy mornings, early hiking, skiing, snowboarding adventures and customize with many add-ins and toppings!

With protein overnight oats you can have your oatmeal and get your protein in! This simple breakfast packs over 20 grams per serving.


½ cup old fashioned rolled oats
½ cup milk of choice
¼ cup non-fat Greek yogurt
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon chia seeds (white and/or black)
1 tablespoon sweetener honey or maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon 



  1. Prep oats or Muesli.  Make sure you’re using old fashioned oats and not quick/instant oats.
  2. Combine all ingredients except the toppings into small single serving containers – you can use any type of milk, but I prefer almond milk, because it’s low in sugar and calories.
  3. Add chia seeds – for added fiber, protein and healthy fats. Chia seeds also absorb some liquid, making the end result a little thicker.  I used white anc black seeds.  
  4. Add the cinnamon – I love adding a hint of cinnamon to bring the flavors together.
  5. Soak: Cover container with a lid and place in the fridge overnight (or at least 1-2 hours).
  6. Stir: Bring out of the fridge in the morning and stir. You’ll notice that the protein powder, oats and chia seeds soak up a lot of the liquid so you may want to add a little more almond milk or water before serving.
  7. Top with toppings of your choice and enjoy.  I love kiwis, berries, dehydrated fruits, raisins, cranberries and walnuts, sliced almonds or almond butter.
  8. Toppings can be added the night before or immediately before serving.
