Easy Overnight Oats

Servings 1


  • 1 banana mashed
  • 1 cup Fairlife milk or Ripple milk higher protein options
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/3 cup oats

Option: Peanut Butter Cup

  • 1 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3 Tbsp peanut butter powder

Option: Oatmeal Raisin Cookie

  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • shake of nutmeg
  • 2 Tbsp raisin and/or dried cherries

Option: Carrot Cake

  • 1/4 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 Tbsp raisins
  • 1 Tbsp pecans
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon


  • In a mason jar or seal-able container, combine mashed banana, milk, chia seeds, and oats. Shake or mix well.
  • Decision time: choose which option you want to add into your oats. Mix the rest of the add ins.
  • Cover or screw lid onto container. Shake it again for good luck. Store in the refrigerator at least overnight and up to 4 days.
  • Before eating, shake well and give it another stir. Feel free to top with more ingredients - nut butters, fruit, spices, nuts, seeds... get crazy.


Athletes: These are great for post workout breakfasts or breakfast when you don't have a workout until the afternoon. There may be a little too much fiber and healthy fats to eat this preworkout, depending on the intensity of said workout. These would also serve as a great mid-day snack to keep the hungries away during intense training blocks.
Healthy Eating: These no added sugar breakfasts are so customizable to keep healthy breakfasts exciting and satisfying.
Kids: This is a pretty big portion for younger kids. Pour them out a smaller portion or put in smaller jars to begin with. I'm a fan of just sharing yours to introduce them to new texture and flavors. For older kids, let them add in the ingredients they want. Engaging them in the preparation greatly increases their odds of trying a new food and accepting it.
Other Thoughts:
  • You can use old fashioned oats or quick oats. The old fashioned hold up more and leave you with more texture, chewiness. But nutritionally, it's the same.
  • The base alone has 21 grams of protein with Fairlife milk. Plus, a little more once you add the additions. Solid balance for starting your day off right.
  • Feel free to add whatever you want to the base - it doesn't have to be the suggestions. Get crazy and lemme know what you like!
