This is a delicious breakfast! I make at least 10 of these at a time. Usually Sunday night so throughout the week, we can grab them and go!


-1/4 cup old fashion oats
-1/3 cup Greek yogurt (I use Dannon Fit and Light Vanilla Non-Fat Greek Yogurt)
-1/4 to 1/2 cup almond milk (depending on how thick you like it)
-1/2 tablespoon chia seeds
-1/2 scoop protein powder (chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, cookies and cream, etc)
-Sweetener – stevia, pure maple syrup, honey, etc
-Add-ins: Nuts, fruit, peanut butter, chocolate chips, etc

This is your basic recipe, and then I like to add more goodies:

Peanutbutter: Add 2 tablespoons PB2
Peanutbutter and blueberry: Add 2 tablespoons PB2 and a handful of blueberries

Java: Substitute milk for chilled coffee, add mini chocolate chips (optional) * I would recommend adding a sweetener of your choice

Chocolate and banana: use chocolate protein powder and banana slices

Apple pie: sprinkle cinnamon and add apple slices

Fruits: Add blueberries, peaches, strawberries, banana, anything!

*Make these the night before and let them sit overnight, eat cold 🙂

By the way, I love oatmeal, but I LOVE these cold!
