I’m back with another overnight oats recipe!
This time I’m showing you how to make Birthday Cake Batter Overnight Oatmeal. And, uhhh, by the way, these overnight oats seriously taste like cake batter.
What’s awesome about this recipe – besides the fact that it’s just a super easy and healthy breakfast idea – is each jar is only about 250 calories! Which means it’s a great recipe for weight loss too.
Plus, these overnight oats have 20 grams of protein in them. And protein is great for a number of reasons, but one of it’s best benefits is the satiating effects it has. Basically it helps keep you feeling full so you don’t overeat.
So, whether you’re looking for macro-friendly breakfast recipes, or breakfast recipes for Weight Watchers, this is one you won’t want to miss.
THINGS I USED TO MAKE THESE OATS:
- This Sealable Jar to help thicken up the oats
- These Chia Seeds to help thicken the recipe up as well
- This Calorie-Free Maple Syrup to keep the calories and carbs lower
- Protein Powder to give these overnight oats a bit more protein
- A Food Scale to measure out all my ingredients
- This Almond Milk to reduce the carbs and calories
- This Sugar Substitute to sweeten up the recipe
- These Sprinkles … because Birthday Cake
- ½ Cup (40g) old fashioned oats
- 1 Tbsp (5g) Chia seeds
