Protein Cottage Cheese Overnight Oats

2 Bowls360 cals

Today, cottage cheese finally meets protein oatmeal! This Protein Cottage Cheese Overnight Oats recipe takes just minutes to make, is cheap, absolutely delicious, and HIGH PROTEIN!

Start this one with a bowl and some mason jars. We’re making 2 servings but if you want to save some time you could cut the recipe in half and mix everything right in your mason jar.

You don’t need mason jars either, they just help with the whole food photography thing and to be honest, are pretty convenient with the lids.

Add into your bowl 1 cup of cottage cheese, 1 1/2 cups of rolled oats, 1 scoop of your choice flavor protein powder, 1 cup of milk substitute, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and 1-2 tablespoons of some sweetener.

Mix everything together.

Evenly distribute your mix into your mason jars and screw your lids on.

Guess what? You’re done! All you need to do now is to put your mason jars into your fridge overnight (a couple hours is fine if you can’t wait).

That is what I use for a base cottage cheese overnight oats recipe. You can easily change up the flavor or macros by adding in things like cocoa powder, ground cinnamon, fresh fruit, brown rice syrup, pumpkin, instant pudding, and so on!

Cottage Cheese Overnight Oats Topping

One thing I like to do right before I’m ready to eat it? Choose a Built Bar that matches my cravings at the time (the selection is insane!) and use it as a topping for even more flavor and protein.

You could also add even more protein to the recipe by using one of our protein frosting recipes too.

This brings us to the sponsor of this recipe, Built Bar! I’m sure you all know by now that I only take sponsors when I actually like the product and these bars? ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!

If you haven’t tried them yet, you can check them out here. They definitely don’t taste like your standard protein bar and the macros are great.

With that said, let me know some of the protein cheesecake overnight oats variations you all try below in the comments below.

    Pardon my ignorance, but what do you mean by “milk substitute”? This looks really good and I’d like to try it ASAP.

      Almond milk, cashew milk, oat milk, soy milk, and so on would all work as milk substitute!
