I have a confession to make. I am late to the game on this overnight oats thing. Why am I just now discovering this?! Late to the party but at least I attended? We'll go with it. Yall, this is a game changer.

Nobody has time to make elaborate breakfasts on the weekdays (If you do, can I be you?), but sometimes it would be nice to have something other than a bar on your way out the door. I gave my husband a jar of these protein oats in lieu of the typical breakfast bar and the poor guy was just thankful for a little variety and something that would fill him up!

What I liked most about this little concoction was that these are protein oats. They fill you up and give your body something substantial. That's an upgrade from the typical carb-loading fest we indulge in with those breakfast bars. The key to this protein is the fairlife. Using fairlife (I found mine at Kroger) instead of regular milk gives you 50% more protein, 30% more calcium, and 50% less sugar than regular milk. I am not one for protein powders and have yet to find one I think tastes like food, so the fact that I get all this protein from the fairlife ingredient is a winner in my book. 

This recipe is really just assembly and requires very little clean up (all you have to use are measuring cups). I used a small mason jar, but use whatever size you have on hand. 

1/4 cup oats
1/4 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
1/3 cup fairlife 
1 1/2 tsp chia seeds
1 1/2 tsp honey
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup diced apples

Place all ingredients in a mason jar and stir together. Store in the refrigerator overnight and enjoy the next morning! This will stay fresh in the refrigerator about 2 days. 

Interested in making your own overnight protein oats? Look for fairlife in the milk section at Kroger.

Have you ever tried overnight oats?

I've yet to make overnight oats, but I've been wanting to for ages! I'll have to see if we have fairlife around here. I know for sure it's not at the commissary, but maybe walmart has it :)
