Tasty, easy to make & versatile these overnight oats have been my go to breakfast ever since I cut back on eggs and found myself in need of a ‘new’ high-protein breakfast.

N.B. If you have specific macro goals you may need to adjust the quantities to better suit your targets. For example:

  • More/Less Oats for higher/lower carbs
  • More /less protein powder for higher/lower carbs 

And if you are tracking, make sure you include any adjustments/additional ingredients used when logging your meal in MyFitnessPal (or wherever you track your food)

Glad someone else is on the protein+oats+berries train! I eat almost exactly the same thing, but I have it at night as a “dessert”. One cup oats, two scoops whey isolate (flavoured, or if unflavoured then add cinnamon and stevia), frozen blueberries, and my addition is a heaping tablespoon of almond butter
