Cinnabun Overnight Protein Oats!!
Protein Oats, Proats, Protes….whatever you call them and however you spell it, these are AH-MAZING! And such a stable in the diet if you’re having a hard time thinking of an easy, healthy snack and even if you’re having a hard time reaching your daily macro goals!
I used to make these every day when I worked in the corporate world and I cannot believe I forgot how yummy and convenient they are. Now I’ve started making them on a regular basis again, even though I work from home! Nothing beats a snack that you can just grab and go!
A couple weeks ago, I bought a sample packet of Body Nutrition Company’s Cinnabun flavored Trutein Protein Powder and thought there was nothing better to test it out on than some overnight proats!
This mixture did not disappoint!! If you have a sweet tooth, I highly suggest trying this flavor for a mid morning, afternoon or late night snack!
This recipe is very simple and flexible and may be adjusted to meet your daily macronutrient requirements. If you plan to use less than 1/2 cup of oats, I would suggest using less of the protein powder as the flavor could be very overpowering.
What you’ll need:
-1/2 to 3/4 cup of old fashioned oats
-1 packet/scoop of Trutein Cinnabun Protein Powder
-Unsweetened original almond milk
- Combine protein powder and oats in a bowl or tupperware and mix until thoroughly combined.
- Pour in enough almond milk to create a thick batter. (The amount of milk is based on the consistency you want your proats to be.)
- For best results, refrigerate in a covered container for a minimum of 5 hours.
- Add desired toppings & enjoy! (You may also add more almond milk at this time if the batter is too thick.)
