Looking for a delicious and simple overnights oats recipe? I have three of my favorites for you today. Overnight oats are a lazy person’s healthy breakfast. Although I love cooking dinners for two or more, I’m usually pretty lazy about making food in the morning.

For breakfast, I like a balanced meal with protein, high-fiber carbs, and healthy fats to fuel my day.

The first recipe is one of my favorite go-to’s. The others are fancier variations on my simple classic. 

SIMPLE OVERNIGHT OATS RECIPE – COACH ROXY’S LAZY FAV

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2-1/3 cup old-fashioned oats*
  • 1 scoop of SFH Fuel Protein Powder (Coconut)
  • 1/2 -1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk or oat milk
    • OR just use my eye-ball method of liquid in the instructions below
  • 1 TBS of raisins
    • OR 2 TBS freeze-dried blueberries or strawberries
  • 1 TBS organic ground chia & flax seed blend
  • A small handful of fresh fruit for topping (optional)

You can a drop of liquid stevia if you want it sweeter, but it’s good for me. The protein powder is already sweetened with stevia.

*Overnight oats do not work with the quick-cooking kind.

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Put all dry ingredients (oats, protein powder, dried fruit, and ground seeds) in the mason jar
  2. Stir a little
  3. Pour in almond milk up to the dry mixture
  4. Wait until the liquid is done bubbling through the oats
  5. Pour a tiny splash more liquid just to be safe
  6. Put the top on your jar and shake vigorously
  7. Refrigerate overnight (or for a few hours) so that the oats soften and absorb the liquid.
  8. Add fresh fruit if desired
