A simple basic recipe for overnight oats in a jar! This is a healthy make ahead breakfast that's perfect for your next meal prep! Add in a scoop of protein powder and you have a protein packed breakfast on the go! 


  • 1/2 cup dry oats (I use Bob's Red Mill Extra Thick Rolled Oats)
  • 3/4-1 cup almond milk (I LOVE the Califia Farms Toasted Coconut Almond Blend)
  • 1 scoop protein powder (I love Levels Vanilla Cinnamon)
  • 1 Tbs Chia Seeds
  • *If you choose not to use protein powder add 1/4 cup greek yogurt instead and reduce almond milk to 1/2 cup. Note that you may want to add a little stevia or agave nectar if you prefer more sweetness to your oats.


  1. Pour oats in a small container
  2. Add protein powder and chia seeds to oats and mix dry ingredients well
  3. Pour in almond milk and stir to mix
  4. Cover with a lid and store in refrigerator overnight
  5. In the morning add your favorite toppings and enjoy!
