Healthy Overnight Oats Ingredients

  • ⅓ cup dry rolled oats
  • 4 fl. oz. unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or other milk alternative) (approx. ½ cup)
  • 1 tsp. chia seeds
  • 1 Tbsp. all-natural peanut butter
  • ½ large banana
  • ¼ cup reduced-fat (2%) plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 packet Vanilla Ladder Whey Protein or (Ladder Plant Protein)
  • 1 dash ground cinnamon

Rolled oats are the main attraction in this grab-and-go breakfast. This whole grain has plenty of healthy benefits, including fiber to keep you feeling full. Half a banana adds a bit of natural sweetness to this oatmeal recipe, while chia seeds provide some iron, calcium, magnesium, and zinc, and omega-3 fatty acids.

These overnight oats are also packed with 28 grams of muscle-building protein thanks to the chia seeds, peanut butter, Greek yogurt, and Ladder Plant Protein or Ladder Whey Protein. The protein powder also amps up the rich vanilla flavor, while the peanut butter and yogurt give this oatmeal recipe a thick and creamy texture.

The result: With just five minute of prep time before bed, you’ll get a breakfast that tastes way more indulgent than your typical bowl of oatmeal, but provides the nutrients you need to power through your morning.
