Ingredients

Dry

  • 1 cup rolled/old fashioned oats
  • ¼ cup vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt

Wet

  • 1 cup milk dairy or non-dairy
  • ½ cup greek yogurt dairy or non-dairy
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Whisk together the oats, protein powder, chia seeds, cinnamon and salt. I know salt may seem odd here, but it really helps balance out the flavors!
  • Whisk in the wet ingredients until well combined.
  • Cover and let sit in the fridge for at least 1 hour, or overnight.
  • Stir really well and add a splash of milk to thin it out if desired.
  • Serve with fresh fruit, chopped nuts or nut butter and enjoy!

Notes

I used vanilla pea protein but any kind of protein powder will work. I recommend a stevia sweetened one for best results, but I would otherwise add in a tablespoon or so of honey or maple syrup. 
For best results, use rolled oats, but if you only have quick oats, that will work too. I do not recommend steel cut oats.
You can use another kind of yogurt other than greek, but greek yogurt will add the most protein.
