How to Make Protein Overnight Oats

Ingredient Notes

Gluten-Free Rolled Oats: Bob’s Red Mill makes great gluten-free rolled oats. Be careful if you have a gluten allergy, as not all brands of rolled oats are gluten-free. Check the labels!

Chia Seeds: Chia seeds are packed with nutrients, antioxidants, and fiber. They will soften overnight and give a tapioca-like texture to the oatmeal. Feel free to skip this ingredient if you don’t prefer that.

Vanilla Protein Powder: Brands like Orgain have a delicious vegan vanilla protein that is sold at Costco. If you aren’t dairy-free, feel free to use Whey or your personal favorite brand!

Unsweetened Almond Milk: You can use unsweetened original or vanilla- whichever is your preference! The unsweetened vanilla will add an extra vanilla flavor to the “banana cream pie” taste.

Maple Syrup: You can also use Lakanto Keto maple syrup if you prefer a “sugar-free” option. Agave will also work.

Banana Pudding Mix: I use Simply Delish or you can use Sugar-Free, however, use what you prefer!

Greek Yogurt: You can use full fat, low-fat, or non-fat Greek yogurt, or any dairy-free yogurt of choice.

Banana: Slice up a fresh, ripe banana for garnish on top of your oatmeal.

Whipped topping: Optional for garnish. There are so many sugar-free, dairy-free, and regular options out there. Choose your favorite!

Easy Step By Step

There are a couple of options you can use to make your protein overnight oats. Choose the option that best fits your style or try both and see what you like best!

Option 1: All Mixed Up

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a jar and place it in the fridge overnight.
  2. Top with extra banana slices and whipped topping and enjoy!

Option 2: Layers

  1. If you want the yogurt layered in between the overnight oats, mix everything in a jar except for the yogurt and maple syrup. Let sit overnight.
  2. After that, mix together the yogurt and maple syrup and create layers with the overnight oats and the sweetened yogurt & banana slices.
  3. Top your overnight oats with extra banana slices and whipped topping and enjoy!

Mac’s Pro Tips

Make overnight oats thinner: If you find your oatmeal tastes a bit dry after sitting overnight, feel free to mix in more almond milk until the desired consistency is reached.

Make ahead: This recipe naturally is a make-ahead recipe, but if you want to have overnight oats for the whole week, simply double, triple, or quadruple the batch and follow the same instructions. This way, you’ll have a protein-packed breakfast meal prepped for the week.

Double Batch: If you want to make a double or triple batch, simply double or triple all the ingredients. So, I recommend making more batches if you plan to eat protein overnight oats for multiple breakfasts.

FAQs

Banana Cream Pie Protein Overnight Oats: FAQs

Are overnight oats a good source of protein?

For my overnight oats, I always add protein powder. In one serving, there are over 30 grams of protein, which means this breakfast will help you stay fuller longer.

Can I make these overnight oats without protein powder?

You totally can, they just won’t be protein-packed like they are when you use the protein powder. But oatmeal is still a great breakfast so if you prefer to make this without protein powder, you’ll still have a healthy breakfast!

Can you put fruit in overnight oats the night before?

Absolutely! The bananas do just fine in the oatmeal overnight and add a ton of yummy flavor. You can always add them the next day too- whichever you prefer!

How many calories are in overnight oats with bananas?

For one serving, this overnight oatmeal has 490 calories and 34 grams of protein! If you’re a lighter eater, feel free to split this into two servings!

My overnight oats are too dry. What happened?

You may have measured too much on the dry ingredients, or too little on the wet ingredients. A simple remedy for this is to add some extra almond milk and mix it up to give it more moisture!

Why should I add in chia seeds to my overnight oats?

Chia seeds are rich in nutrients, omega-3s, antioxidants, and fiber! In this recipe, they are so easy to prepare, as they just plump up overnight from all the wet ingredients in the oatmeal.

Can I serve two with this recipe?

While the serving size is for 1 adult, if you’re feeding this healthy breakfast to your kids, feel free to split it up! It’ll be more than enough for two child eaters, and still packs in over 15 grams of protein per serving!

Favorite Protein Powder

I use Clean Simple Eats protein powder. They have the best tasting plant-based options in chocolate and vanilla. My husband who is not dairy-free uses their regular protein powders and can’t get enough. They have high quality ingredietns and taste amazing.

    I used the method where you mix everything except the yogurt and maple (added that right before eating). I measured precisely, and the mixture was too dry/thick to stir. I ended up adding twice the amount of liquid. After that, it was great. Next time I will add a whole banana instead of 1/2.

      Hi Kate,
      Thank you for your feedback. Absolutely adding additional liquids to prevent drying or thickness is the answer!!

👇🏼My 2 favorite healthy swaps for oil when baking, applesauce and Greek yogurt. Both options will save you a ton of calories and fat and give you the same results as oil. 

These swaps are for baked goods such as cakes, cupcakes, sweet breads, and muffins. 

🍎APPLESAUCE SWAP: When substituting applesauce for oil in baked goods, the ratio is 1:1. 

Example: If the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of oil, use 1/4 cup of applesauce or 1/2 cup oil use 1/2 cup applesauce. It’s a equal swap. 

🍎For every 1/2 cup of oil replaced with applesauce, you will save over 900 calories and 110 grams of fat. It will also make your cakes and baked goods super moist. 

✨GREEK YOGURT SWAP: For everyone 1 cup of oil sub 3/4 cup Greek or plain yogurt. 

Example: If you are using 1/2 cup oil, use 1/4 cup Greek yogurt. For 1/2 cup of oil there is over 900 calories. For 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt there is only 38 calories. 

Greek yogurt adds more protein and cuts fat by 100%
