I recently came up with a list of 30 different ways to make oatmeal, because I eat oatmeal almost every day.
I’ve also noticed that the grocery store has exploded with a variety of different flavored oatmeal. In fact, I recently bought two new boxes: Lucky Charms and Cinnamon Toast Crunch! They were, in fact, delicious!!
So, I’ve been experimenting with skinny mixes to add to oatmeal, and they do NOT disappoint! Everything from cookie dough, to cinnamon roll has made it into my morning oatmeal.
All that to say, s’mores has been trying to make it’s way into my oatmeal for some time now. I just never made it happen until I found Lily’s sugar free chocolate chips (I used some in this baked oatmeal) and the Walden farms zero calorie marshmallow dip (which I used on these gluten free sweet potato waffles) . Suddenly, it all made sense to make some S’mores protein overnight oats!
How to Make Protein Overnight Oats
Classic overnight oats has you combine a liquid with dry oatmeal. While I love the way this tastes, it doesn’t result in a big voluminous bowl of oats unless you use a lot of dry oats. Which means, the calories are going to be more than I want in oatmeal.
So, instead, I’ve been partially cooking the oatmeal, and then putting it in the fridge overnight. I use portions of 1/3 cup oats (because I like to keep the oats at 100 calories in order to add my toppings), and 1 cup of water.
I cook the oatmeal in the microwave for 1-3 minutes, and then put it in the fridge.
The next morning, after it’s had 12 hours to absorb, I added:
- Nonfat plain Greek yogurt (for the creaminess and the protein) This is where most of the 12 grams of protein come from, making it protein overnight oats.
- Then, I stirred in Walden Farms Marshmallow dip. Walden Farms does make some pretty nasty products, but the dips are amazing- in my opinion. I particularly like the maple syrup, the marshmallow dip, and the caramel dip
- Next, sprinkle Lily’s chocolate chips on top. While these aren’t zero calories, they are at least half the calories of regular chocolate chips. They are also sugar free and super creamy!
- Finally, I top it off with 1 square of crushed graham crackers.
Simple, healthy, and delicious!
Make it a balanced meal!
