I’m always on the go, so I love recipes that are quick and easy to make. That’s why I love these Oreo Protein Overnight Oats.
They’re high in protein, so they keep me feeling full and satisfied until lunchtime. Plus, they’re delicious and easy to customize. I can add whatever toppings I’m in the mood for.
The oats will soak in the fridge overnight and in the morning you can eat them as is or with a crushed Oreo on top.
Table of Contents
The oats in this dish have a sponge-like effect, which will aid in the absorption of liquid from the milk and yogurt, resulting in a thick, creamy texture.
Oatmeal is a high-quality source of carbohydrates that provides steady energy throughout the morning. It’s also high in fiber, which may aid with digestion.
I prefer to use 2% milk in this recipe because it contains more protein and calcium than plant-based milk. However, you can use whatever type of milk you have on hand.
Greek yogurt is a thick, creamy yogurt that’s high in protein. It will add both creaminess and protein to the oats.
I like to use whey protein because it’s a high-quality protein that is easily absorbed by the body. However, you can use any type of protein powder you have on hand.
Chia seeds are a good source of fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. They will add a nutty flavor and texture to the oats.
The Oreo Cookie is a perfect addition to the Protein Overnight Protoen Oats because it adds flavor and texture. The crushed Oreo also provides a source of carbohydrates.
There are a few substitutions you can make with this recipe:
- If you don’t have Greek yogurt, you can use regular yogurt or even cottage cheese.
- If you’re not a fan of whey protein, you can use any type of protein powder you like.
- If you don’t have chia seeds, you can omit them or substitute them with flaxseeds.
- If you don’t have an Oreo, you can use any type of cookie or even fruit for topping.
With these substitutions, you can easily make this recipe your own. So go ahead and give it a try!
