Basic Overnight Soaked Proats

Happy Monday everyone!

I’ve had several requests over the past couple of months to write up my overnight soaked proats recipe for those who like to have breakfast on the go. So of course, I listen to my followers and give them what they want 🙂

I make overnight soaked proats most evenings ready for breakfast at work the next day. Now I have to leave 45 minutes earlier to get to work because of the move, this is the best way for me to make sure I get a great start to the day!

Now, this is a very basic recipe with just four ingredients. But, it’s a great way to start to day! Enjoy 🙂

Ingredients –

1/2 cup Gluten Free Oats

1 scoop Efectiv Nutrition Whey Protein (whatever flavour you fancy!)

3/4 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk

3 tbsp Total Greek Yoghurt

Method –

1. In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients above

2. Pop it into a glass jar and leave it to soak overnight in the fridge

3. Take it out in the morning and give it a stir. If it’s too thick, add a splash of almond milk

4. And now your breakfast is ready to demolish!

I always add my fruit, nut butters, nuts and seasoning after the oats have soaked overnight. And in my eyes, this is the fun part! Guaranteed, my soaked oats have one or more of the following ingredients –

~ Frozen Berries ~ Fresh Berries ~ Dried Fruits ~ Cinnamon ~ Nut Butters ~ Nuts ~ TRKG Sugar Free Syrups ~ Raw Maple Syrup ~ Raw Honey ~ Raw Cacao Powder ~ Sweet Freedom Choc Shot ~ Sweet Freedom Original ~ Chia Seeds ~

The possibilities are endless 😀 Here are a few pictures & flavour combinations to give you some inspiration on what kind of flavoured proats you could create!

Why do I love making this recipe so much? Simple! You’re working with a blank canvas so it gives you the opportunity to experiment with different flavours and products that will give you the best protein packed breakfast ever!

Now I know it’s a very simple recipe, but it’s good to take it back to basics sometimes 🙂

    Proats are an awesome and convenient way to cram in some early morning nutrition…plus you can’t use not having time as an excuse because you can make them while you cook dinner!
