Overnight Oats


Prep time: 5 minutes

Serving Size: 1 portion
As long as the OOIAJ (Overnight oats in a jar) are sealed in an airtight container, they can last in the fridge for up to three days- perfect for meal prep!


Base layer:

  • ¼ cup quick rolled oats
  • ½ cup milk of your choice (i.e. almond, coconut or dairy)
  • ½ tbsp. chia seeds
  • ½ scoop of LeanFit All-in-One protein powder (whey or plant-based can be subbed.)
    *Note: if you are omitting the protein powder, use only ¼ cup milk of your choice.
  • Toppings:

  • ½ cup of plain yogurt or yogurt substitute
  • 1 tbsp. of chopped nuts (walnuts shown in photo)
  • 1 tsp. maple syrup, honey or agave syrup
  • fruit of your choice (mixed berries shown in photo)
  • Instructions:

      Pour the oats, almond milk, chia seeds and protein powder into your airtight container. Stir until all ingredients are combined.

    1. Layer the yogurt on top of the oat mixture.
    2. Next, add the nuts, natural sweetener and fruit of your choice.
    3. Seal the container. Refrigerate overnight.
      In the morning:

      Grab it and go! This is an easy, healthy breakfast to fuel your mornings and keep you full until you have a snack break or lunch. Mine works out to approximately 350 calories, 35g of C, 28g of P and 9 g of F.

      Feel free to get creative with your toppings, try a variety of combinations and modify the recipe to meet your nutritional goals. Some other topping combinations I enjoy are:

    1. banana & nut butter
    2. mango & hemp hearts
    3. pomegranate seeds & pumpkin seeds
    4. raspberries & almond butter
    5. strawberries & cacao nibs
