One of my nutrition clients recently professed her love for overnight oats to me and said she wanted them on her plan every week. Now that she’s approaching her 6th week of her plan, I realized our database was just about out of new overnight oat recipes for her to try.
I wanted to make sure she could have her beloved oats for the rest of her plan, so I created a recipe for Overnight Carrot Cake Protein Oatmeal. It’s quite the delicious recipe, and it’s super satisfying with a healthy (and balanced) dose of protein, carbs, and fat. You can also make this recipe dairy-free by using your favorite (non-dairy) protein powder or collagen. Enjoy!
Carrot Cake Overnight Protein Oats
- 1/3 cup rolled oats
- 1 scoop 30g vanilla or coconut protein powder (I used SFH)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 2 tbsp grated carrot
- 1 tbsp chopped walnuts
- 1 tbsp unsweetened coconut
- 1 tsp raisins
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp chia seeds
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- pinch of nutmeg
Combine ingredients in a mason jar or container with lid. Refrigerate overnight. In the morning, grab a spoon and eat, or warm in the microwave first.
