Early Birds: Overnight Oats w. Chia Seeds & Protein

Overnight oats has become such a staple in my diet lately—it’s one of the easiest ways to get my #protein—just mix your protein powder with the almond milk before combining ingredients :) In this bowl: rolled oats, pea protein powder + almond milk mixture, raisins, walnuts, almonds, blueberries, bananas, vanilla extract, and cinnamon

Taken straight from my Instagram.

The best method I’ve found to get this combo right is to first mix the protein powder with about 3/4 cup-1 cup almond milk in a cup with a fork, making sure to get all the clumps out. In a bowl (or Tupperware dish if you’ll be taking this to class/the office) pour in your rolled oats, walnuts, almonds, vanilla extract, raisins, and cinnamon. I always opt to add in the fresh fruit at the end/right before I leave my apartment so the banana doesn’t get too mushy. Sorry for not having measurements for these, everything is eyeballed and made to taste. Feel free to post a comment if you’d like me to be more specific in the amounts of each.
