How to make Easy Overnight Oats

This easy overnight oats recipe uses no yogurt. It is incredibly simple and uses only rolled oats, low-fat milk, vanilla protein powder, and a little monk fruit sweetener. All of the ingredients are added to an 8oz mason jar and put in the fridge overnight. 

Mason Jars are incredibly useful for creating on the go meals. I found this amazing set of different sized mason jars on Amazon and use them all the time for meal prep and storage. These even come with labels.


Overnight Oats Milk Substitutions

Using skim or low-fat milk in your overnight oats will add 5g of protein. However, if you are vegan or vegetarian you can use coconut milk, almond milk, oat milk, or soy milk. 



Why you should make Overnight Oats with Protein Powder

I always add protein powder to all of my oats. It is an easy way to get more protein in your diet and adds a great creamy sweet vanilla flavor. I am not a fan of smoothies or shakes so this is an awesome alternative way of using protein powder.

  • Mason Jar 8oz



  • Add rolled oats to an 8oz mason jar
  • then pour in your milk, protein powder, and monk fruit sugar.
  • Let your oats soak overnight and top with fresh rasberries when you're ready to enjoy.


Milk Substitutions

Low-fat milk and skim milk will provide 5g of protein. Optionally you can use almond, soy, coconut, or oat milk and adjust the protein accordingly.

Monk Fruit Sweetener

Finally, a sugar substitute has been developed without an after taste! Optionally you can add honey or agave but it will increase the calories. You can also try omitting any additional sweetener since your protein powder may be sweet enough.

What is Monk Fruit Sweetener and Why Is It Better Than Regular Sugar?

Monk fruit sweetener is a combination of sugar alcohol and monk fruit extract. It is the latest in calorie-free, carb-free sweeteners and the first I can tolerate. In fact, it really has no after taste which is amazing. It is the only sweetener I have ever been able to use and is a game-changer.
I used to avoid artificial sweeteners because of their typical horrible after taste. I find that monk fruit sweetener, especially when combined with natural sugars, have zero after taste. This sweetener is perfect for those following a keto, low carb, or sugar-free diet.
