Carrot Cake Protein Overnight Oats
Carrot Cake Protein Overnight Oats. It's as tasty as it sounds. Even better, it’s super cheap to make, a good balance of protein, carbs and healthy fat for a steady dose of energy and best of all, it’s so easy a 5 year old can’t mess this up!
Prep Time: 00:10
Cook Time: 00:00
2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1 cup grated carrots
1 cup plain greek yogurt
1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
1/2 cup vanilla whey protein powder (or other protein powder of your choice)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cardamom
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
optional toppings: shredded coconut, raisins, walnuts, cacao nibs, hemp seeds, nut butter, cinnamon, drizzle of maple syrup, or
1Add all ingredients to a medium bowl and stir to combine.
2Let sit at least an hour or overnight. (This doesn’t even really count as a second step...so yes, this is just a 1 step recipe!)
Choose old fashioned rolled oats over quick cooking oats. Old fashioned oats are less processed and higher in fiber, protein and other nutrients than their quick cooking step-sibling. Steel cut oats, the even less processed parent of old-fashioned rolled oats, work well here too and retain even more nutrients. They will take longer to soak - overnight as opposed to an hour or so - and will also be more chewy than the rolled oats. If you want to add sweetener, I recommend using only as much natural sweetener, like honey or maple syrup, as you need. You can also try stevia.
