Apple Cinnamon Protein Overnight Oats

Have you tried overnight oats yet? I was skeptical at first, but now I am 100% addicted to them! This is a super easy and quick way to make sure that you have a healthy breakfast waiting for you in the morning. I recently had foot surgery and have been really limited in mobility, so this type of breakfast certainly came to my rescue.

These oats are delicious and refreshing, they’re the perfect thing to get you ready for summer. The mix of textures in this recipe is especially lovely, plus the crispy crunch from the apples holds up even after 3 days in the fridge – making it a great one for meal prep and batch cooking!

Take a peek at some of the superstars in this recipe:

Give this easy breakfast a try and you’ll be out the door with a satisfied belly in no time!

    I’m planning of going on a self sufficient bike tour this summer which means that I won’t have a fridge for almond, or other non-dairy milk, nor would I want to carry the weight on the bike. Your overnight oatmeal is perfect, I can carry the dry ingredients and soak it overnight with water from the campsite. However, is it possible to prepare a dry almond milk to which water can be added? Then I could combine the dry ingredients for the oatmeal with the dry almond milk powder with water, soak overnight and have this breakfast in the morning. Other non-dairy milks are fine as well. Looking forward to hear from you. Jules

    Wow, a bike tour sounds awesome! We haven’t tried it, but we bet you could use powdered almond milk and water in this recipe. Good luck with your trip!

    Hey, I just noticed you’re 4 hrs south of me, Sudbury. I couldn’t find a almond milk power recipe on your site but I found a almond milk power recipe elsewhere,, it looks pretty easy.

    Hi :) I am new to protein powders. It is possible to recommend a good brand or let me know what I need to be on the lookout for? Thanks in advance

    Hi Daphne! This is a great guide to protein powders: Also, if you’re not ready to invest in protein powder you could start by adding hemp seeds, which are rich in protein as well as anti-inflammatory omega 3 fats.

    Julian, Shiloh Farms has Coconut Milk Powder. I use it in curry recipes (mixing it in warm “gravy”) so not sure how it would dissolve in cold water. I purchase it through Vitacost.

Let us know what you think!
