Apple Overnight Oats – A Simple High Protein Breakfast

I’m a big yogurt parfait girl for breakfast, but I don’t mind when these cinnamon apple overnight oats make their way in.

I prefer to make one large batch of overnight oats and then portion it into single-serving containers. This recipe makes ~5 cups total. Perfect for your week day breakfast…or I guess you could share!

Nutrition Highlights

Split into 5 servings, this recipe packs in over 30g of protein per serving, about 50g carbs including 8g of fiber – yessssss indeed, and ~15g of fat. There ya have it – a macro-balanced breakfast that is easy to adjust depending on your needs.

Ingredient Notes

I do use vanilla whey protein in my recipe, but if you don’t have any on hand or prefer to leave it out, no biggie. I would consider adding 1/4 cup of maple syrup to give it a hint of sweetness…and then you might need to add some additional oats or reduce the milk to 1 cup to avoid too thin of a texture. To replace that protein in your meal, you could pair your oats with a couple of boiled eggs.

Yes, I am picky with protein powder – and supplements in general. To keep it short and sweet, supplements aren’t tightly regulated, so I check for reputable third party testing labels that provide an extra layer of purity and safety standards. I used the Ascent vanilla bean whey in this recipe. You can find the Informed Sport testing logo on the bag!

The apples. Okay. I used to wait on the apple and slice some up before I ate these. Now I just mix them into the base. I haven’t had any major issues with quality…but if you’re nervous, just leave ’em out and chop some up in the morning!

Y’all enjoy!
