Overnight Oats with Blueberries and Raspberries in Mason Jar

When I (Samantha Shorkey) was training for my bikini (bodybuilding) competition last year, I kept seeing recipe posts for this new breakfast craze called “overnight oats.” They looked so cool and I wanted in on the action too so I came up with my own “competition diet” version.

I think this recipe tastes delish and preparing it the night before saves me so much time in the morning.

If you’re a big fan of raw oatmeal, here’s another one of our favorite varieties: Raw Oatmeal with Coconut and Ginger

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 serving Vanilla Vega Sport® Performance Protein
  • 1/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries/raspberries
  • 1 Tbsp almond butter
  • 1/2-1 tsp ground cinnamon (whatever your preference)
  • 1 cup water or unsweetened almond milk

Preparation

  1. Layer ingredients (in order listed above) into a pint-sized, glass Mason jar. Oats should be on the bottom, water/almond milk poured over everything last.

  2. Place in fridge and leave overnight.

  3. If mixture needs more liquid in the morning, add a bit of unsweetened almond milk to it.

  4. Stir and enjoy straight out of the jar!
