15 Protein Overnight Oats Recipes (Different Flavors)

These 15 High Protein Overnight Oats Recipes are each the perfect easy breakfast recipe that double as a great source of protein. They are made in individual portions in a small container, glass jar, or airtight container and are a great addition to a busy morning routine.

Overnight oats can be such a great way to get a large chunk of your protein intake in in the morning. However, some individuals hate the thought of them because of their texture.

For best results in all the healthy recipes listed below, I have made sure they are not mushy. They contain lots of old fashioned oats, protein powder, and just the right amount of milk.

The best part is you can make each recipe vegan if you choose by substituting certain ingredients. They are a great option to start your morning off on the right foot.

I do recommend purchasing a high quality protein powder as the oats really do take on that flavor. Any type of protein powder will work, however if you’re looking for something that tastes amazing and has no added sugar you need to try out PEScience protein powder flavours.

These are such easy recipes, with at least 30 grams of protein per serving, and are perfect to meal prep and grab and go the next morning.

You will need the following ingredients listed below to make these healthy overnight oats recipes (the exact measurements and full recipe are in each individual recipe card at the bottom of each post):

  • Gluten-free oats – not necessary to use gluten-free unless you have celiac disease, but I do recommend using quick oats, old-fashioned oats, or rolled oats and avoiding steel cut oats.
  • Chia seeds – for some healthy fats.
  • Non-dairy milk – anything like unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk, oat milk, hemp milk, soy milk, cashew milk or regular milk all work.
  • Brown sugar – pure maple syrup, honey or apple sauce for some sweetness.
  • Cream cheese 
  • Peanut butter – almond butter, cashew butter, sunflower seed butter, or your favorite nut butter of choice will all work.
  • Whey protein – vanilla protein powder, chocolate protein powder, or vegan protein powder. Adding a scoop of protein powder to these recipes adds lots of extra protein.
  • Greek yogurt – a healthy protein source that is also used as the icing. Non-fat greek yogurt can also be used for a lower calorie option, or vegan yogurt for vegan option.
  • Vanilla extract – and almond extract.
  • Lemon juice
  • Lemon zest
  • Coconut flakes
  • Fresh berries
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • Chocolate chips
  • Cocoa powder
  • Fresh fruit
  • Cottage cheese
