Top Favorite Protein Overnight Oats - 2 ways

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day!


Without it I'm grumpy, irritable, and I find I crave more sugar on days I don't eat a good breakfast.


But the problem for me is that I don't enjoy cooking breakfast in the morning.


I don't enjoy starting my day cooking yet another meal for everyone and having to clean up dishes right away in the morning.


To fix this problem, I've learned to add a food prep routine at the start of the week to specifically prepare a healthy breakfast for my family has been the best use of my time on the weekends.


Usually I make egg muffins, that I recently shared in this post, but sometimes we need a break from eggs.


Another great option is overnight oats!


However, too many overnight oat recipes don't have a great macro profile. They can be way too high in carbs and far too low in protein.


These recipes I want to share today help fix that macro balance with a good dose of healthy fat and protein to pair with those oats.


I like to use this brand of protein powder. It's accessible at places like Costco or even Amazon, has a good ingredient list, and doesn't break the bank.



Try one or both of these overnight recipes to prep your week with a healthy, balanced macro breakfast that you don't have to cook in the morning.
