Tasty overnight protein berry oats (meal prep friendly)

Overnight protein berry oats

This is my go-to easy, nourishing breakfast recipe. I make it for 2-3 days then leave it in the fridge overnight/ for a few days. You don’t need to cook the oats, just eat them cold in the morning. As the oats soak for an extended period of time, they are soft enough to eat uncooked in the morning. You can easily play with different flavour combinations such as chocolate protein and banana instead of the berries. Sometimes I grate a carrot in too and add some nutmeg and it tastes like carrot cake oats! The base I always use for my overnight oats is the oats, milk, chia and protein powder. The oats are wonderful carbs for energy and also a good source of soluble fibre, I try to keep the chia seeds in for healthy fats and fibre and the protein power provides additional protein to help support my muscle mass and keeps me feeling fuller for longer.
