Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup oats your favorite kind - I use mostly rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk or your favorite kind of milk
  • 1/2 tbsp molasses
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1/3 cup protein powder I used 2 scoops of Vital Proteins Collagen
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of ginger
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • optional: 1/2 tbsp coconut oil to keep you full for longer!

Instructions

  1. Place all the ingredients in a jar with a lid (I love this one!). Stir with a spoon until well combined. Taste and add more sweetener if needed. Close the lid and store in the fridge overnight. 

  2. In the morning, stir oats again. At this point, you can add a bit more milk to taste. Reheat for a few seconds in the microwave and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

TO MAKE MORE SERVINGS: Double or triple the ingredients, combine them all in a medium bowl and distribute in several jars (instead of combining and mixing one jar at a time).
