If you are trying to lose weight on a low calorie diet, but finding it difficult to stay full after breakfast, consider some overnight oats with chia seeds and protein powder.

This easy breakfast has so many benefits!

  • It’s quick to make. The night before, assemble all the ingredients and chill. You can grab it in the morning without dirtying up any dishes.
  • It’s portable. If you have to take your breakfast on the go, I can’t think of anything better than overnight oats! Soak your oats in a jar and you can put a lid on it and take it anywhere. Keep it in a cooler and no need to find a microwave- because you’ll eat it cold.
  • It’s high in protein. With the vanilla protein powder, your protein gets a huge boost! Plus 1/2 cup of oats provide 5 g protein, and the chia seeds have 2 g of protein!
  • It’s high in fiber: 3 g from the tablespoon of chia seeds, 4 g from the oats, and 2 g from the orange.
  • This chia overnight oats is a great source of healthy fats! Chia seeds are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are important for heart health. These healthy fats also contribute to satiety, helping you feel satisfied after your meal.
  • And finally, it’s a balanced meal– Carbs, protein, fats, fiber. This overnight protein oats with chia seeds has it all.

How to make overnight oats

If you’re new to overnight oats, this is all you need to know. I like to keep it simple! I combine a liquid with some dry oats. Stir it up and place it in the fridge overnight, or until the oats absorb the liquid and get thick!

From there, you can get creative with flavor drops, flavored protein powders, mix-ins and more. Recently, I purchased these candy flavor drops from Amazon to use in these lemon protein balls, and couldn’t believe the flavor they could bring! So, I’ve been trying to add the flavoring to other foods as well. The orange flavor was perfect for these overnight oats!

So, check out this healthy, portable, and delicious breakfast, Chia seed protein overnight oats!
