I absolutely love overnight oats, and making them with protein powder is a new favorite!  I’ve been trying out different flavor and spice combinations for oats, and this easy fruit and protein version turned out incredible. It’s has vanilla, protein powder, almond milk (or any milk you prefer!)  – and your favorite fruit that can be added straight into the oats to soak overnight.

It’s the best recipe to meal prep and make ahead for the week. Overnight oats are an easy way to batch-prep a week of breakfasts that your family will love.

Meal Prep Breakfast Recipes For the Win!

This overnight oats with protein powder is the perfect recipe for healthy homemade meal prep.  I am a huge fan of meal prepping, batch cooking, and making recipes ahead.  I love the convenience of cooking once and being able to enjoy healthy homemade meals during the week when I don’t have time. There’s a whole section of TheHerbeevore.com dedicated to my favorite tried & true meal prep recipes

With just a little planning and prep, you can have a week’s worth of recipes ready in the time it would take to make one portion.  Just batch cook, divide into individual containers, and place in the fridge or freezer for later!  I also made a list of my favorite meal prep products on Amazon that I use weekly. They make cooking easy.

What’s In This High Protein Overnight Oats Recipe?

I get all the fresh produce for my recipes from my garden and from Misfits Market – they sell all organic produce at a super discounted price, and it’s purchased direct from the farmers. We get Misfit Market boxes every month and love picking out our favorite seasonal produce for delivery.  You can get $10 off your first $30 box by clicking here! 

If you think organic produce is too expensive… think again, and give Misfits Market a look!

  • Fruit – you can use any kind you’d like! I used blueberries, which we always keep in the freezer. Just make sure to cut any larger fruit into bite-sized pieces before adding to your oats. You can use:
    • Blueberries
    • Raspberries
    • Strawberries, chopped into smaller pieces
    • Mango, chopped
    • Bananas, sliced
    • Dark Cherries, halved
    • Blackberries
    • Pineapple, chopped
    • Peaches, Pears, or Plums
  • Old Fashioned Oats: I used old fashioned oats for this recipe. I found old fashioned oats work much better than quick oats, as they hold up really well overnight.
  • Plant-Based Vanilla Protein Powder – of all the protein powders in the world, this vanilla protein powder is my absolute favorite!  It’s simple, has just 4 ingredients, and tastes amazing in oats or smoothies. It’s not chalky and contains 15g of plant protein to keep you going throughout the day!
  • Vanilla Extract: it’s super important to use real pure vanilla extract, and not artificial baking vanilla flavor. This real all natural vanilla is a fantastic ingredient to give this recipe an #extra boost.
  • Agave Syrup:  I really like using this raw organic agave syrup because it’s a sustainable sweetener, plus it’s an inexpensive natural sweetener so I always keep a few of these bottles in my pantry.
  • Ground Flaxseeds: I always add a scoop in my oatmeal for a little extra nutritional punch!  This flaxseed meal has a wonderful nutty flavor too.  Flaxseeds have a ton of amazing health benefits, so add a scoop to breakfasts, lunches, or smoothies!
  • Almond Milk – plain and unsweetened!  The higher the fat content, the creamier the milk will be.
