How I Make My Oats

A couple of you guys have asked me how I make my overnight oats and I realized I never shared the secret with you ;)
It's really simple and takes me under five minutes to make breakfast every morning or night depending on how lazy I get at night.

So in my oats goes:
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • almond milk
The almond milk always goes unmeasured because I just pour a little bit in at a time until I get the right consistency. I am pretty picky with my oats. I'm not a fan of them runny. Designer Whey gourmet's chocolate flavor is my favorite, tastes like dessert.
If I make them the night before, I just let them chill in a covered bowl overnight and then eat them cold. If I make them in the am, then I do my little freezer trick to help thicken them up a bit.
Fruit toppings make them extra delicious! My favorite is adding cold strawberries on top. The strawberries mixed with chocolate protein powder is delicious. Yum!
There ya have it friends! A satisfying breakfast in under five minutes.

So my question for you is:

How do you make your oats? I'm always on the hunt for trying new varieties and ways to mix it up.
