Start your eggnog season off for breakfast without the hangover! This Eggnog Protein Overnight Oats recipe is packed with seasonal flavor, healthy, and takes just minutes to prep.
Add into your favorite oatmeal bowl 1/2 cup of rolled oats, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1/2 container of a plain or vanilla Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon of chia seeds, 1 scoop of a vanilla protein powder, and 1/3 cup of eggnog.
Did you know that chia seeds are a great source of healthy fats, fiber and protein?
Take out a spoon and mix all of those eggnog protein overnight oats ingredients together.
Cover up or put the lid onto your oatmeal bowl and throw it into the fridge. I suggest putting it in there overnight (hence the name!) or at minimum, 2-3 hours if you can’t wait that long.
You’ll know it’s done when your oats have absorbed the eggnog and your texture has thickened up!
If there’s too much sugar in this recipe you can easily lower it by using a low sugar or sugar free Greek yogurt and eggnog milk substitute.
Remove your eggnog protein overnight oats from the fridge and top it! I like topping my oatmeal with some fat free whipped cream and ground cinnamon. Let us know what you top your eggnog with in the comments below.
