Breakfast people are the best people (in my opinion). And if you’re one of my fav people you’re going to L-O-V-E this so-simple recipe. It’s delicious, nutritious, and packs a mad punch of energy.

I’ll be honest — I eat this mid-morning (after my first breakfast of 2 scrambled eggs) when I’m sitting at my desk feeling my energy levels dwindle and listening to my tummy grumble. I’m what you’d call a “grazer,” as in, I eat ALL day long. So separating my breakfast into 2 parts makes me feel like I’m getting more food. Weird? I don’t care.

Here’s what you’ll need for 1 serving (feel free to make a week’s worth though!):

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 3 tbsp. egg whites (YES egg whites are OK to eat raw)
  • 1/4 cup frozen berries
  • 1 tbsp. almond butter
  • 1/3 banana
  • 1/4 cup almond milk

Here’s what you do:

  • Put all the dry ingredients into a plastic container or jar
  • Add fruit
  • Add liquid
  • Mix together
  • Leave in fridge overnight

It’s THAT simple. You’ll start your day with a good amount of protein, a serving of fruit, healthy carbs to keep you fueled, protein for your gains, and good fats! Also, your taste buds will be dancing.

Other toppings/add-ins you could use:

  • Other nut butters
  • Protein powder
  • Greek yogurt
  • Nuts
  • Seeds
  • Cinnamon
  • Cacao nibs

Let me know if you give this recipe a try or if you’ve got your own overnight oats you swear by!

Positive Vibes,

Kaili
