I am SO EXCITED to share this incredible Overnight Oats recipe I made this weekend that I got from Alexandrea, my lovely friend on Facebook who shared it with me. Click here to see the original link where I got these recipes from The Yummy Life. Granted, I changed up some of the recipe ingredients to suit my own taste.
Overnight Oats is a protein-packed, fiber-filled, and low-calorie oatmeal recipe that you leave in the fridge overnight to soak up all the flavors and soften. It's got the texture of porridge and pudding in one. You can leave them in the fridge for up to 4 days.
They are filled with Greek Yogurt, Soy milk, honey and chia seeds. The chia seeds fluff up overnight and are soft by morning.
I made five different flavors: Mango Almond, Raspberry Vanilla, Peanut Butter Banana, Blackberry Walnut, and Banana Cocoa.
These babies are great for breakfast or a post-workout snack! I can't tell you how excited this week is going to be for me because of these little gems! I already had my first one this morning and O-M-GOSH they are DELICIOUS beyond description! No joking here, you've GOTTA try them!
Here are your basic ingredients that will be needed for ALL of the flavors:
• Mason Jars size: Half Pint (8 oz) = 1cup
• Old Fashioned ROLLED OATS 1/4 cup (not instant, quick, or steel-cut)
• Vanilla Soy Milk 1/3 cup (or any milk of your choice like skim, almond, etc.)
• Greek Yogurt 1/4 cup (I prefer the brand Fagé, it has 23g of protein per serving & zero fat)
• Chia Seeds 1 teaspoon (you can find at any store now-a-days)
• Honey 1 teaspoon (or sweetener of your choice)
You're going to add these ingredients into your mason jar, along with the other recipe-specific ingredients, put the lid on, shake it up well, and refridgerate over night! Simple, quick, and easy meal prep!

Okay people, this is the most delicious healthy recipe I've ever made, EVER! These are Jamie Eason's lemon protein bars and they're incredibly easy to make, no joke here. Even my husband, who is very picky about the kind of cake he eats (he'll only eat moist, rich cakes), was scarfing these babies down. (They're kind of soft like cake, and not hard like your typical store-bought protein bar).
This recipe is a healthy treat to help you maintain your fit lifestyle on a regular basis without blowing your diet or healthy eating. We all need treats, and it's best when we can eat something that healthy and delicous too! So limit yourself to one a day, and share them with your friends and family, don't scarf them all down by yourself!!
