Table of Contents
INGREDIENTS FOR THIS OVERNIGHT OATMEAL RECIPE
You will need the following ingredients listed below to make this delicious breakfast (the exact measurements are in the recipe card below):
- Gluten-free rolled oats or quick oats – It’s not required to use gluten free for the recipe to work, but you can if you want to lower gluten content. I do not recommend using steel-cut oats in this recipe.
- Almond milk– any type of milk will work here such as soy milk, cashew milk, coconut milk, hemp milk, etc.
- Chia Seeds – They help thicken the overnight oats by absorbing some of the liquid that might be seeping from the almond milk. Chia overnight oats are the best kind of overnight oats!
- Protein powder – one of the benefits of overnight oats is you can turn them into a protein-packed meal by simply adding in some protein power. My favourite protein powder is PEScience and you can use code BAILEY at checkout for a special deal on all their products!
- Fresh raspberries
- Non-fat greek yogurt – adding this will increase the amount of protein in the oats and also makes them the most creamy overnight oats recipe.
- White chocolate chips
- Other types of fresh berries
- Nuts or seeds
- Honey or pure maple syrup
HOW TO MAKE THIS OATMEAL PROTEIN POWDER RECIPE
Add all oat ingredients to a mixing bowl or glass jar. Stir well and refrigerate for minimum 1 hour while you get the ganache/toppings ready.
Chop up raspberries.
In a small bowl, microwave the white chocolate in 30 second intervals. Mix in with Greek yogurt, you can use a wire whisk to get rid of lumps.
Once oats are set, remove from refrigerator and layer them with chopped raspberries and the white chocolate layer. Put back in refrigerator overnight to set.
The next morning, top with more raspberries and white chocolate (optional) and grab and go!
ARE OVERNIGHT OATS HEALTHY?
Are overnight oats good for you? Yes, protein oats offer a wide variety of health benefits.
They are rich in fibre and have a high protein content, especially with the added protein powder that is also added. They also contain a number of vitamins and minerals, some of which include manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, copper, iron and zinc.
This makes overnight oats healthy for your gut, as well as for overall health and well-being.
CAN I USE QUICK OATS FOR OVERNIGHT OATS
Yes, quick oats are rolled oats are best for protein powder overnight oats. For best results, do not use steel cut oats for any high protein overnight oats recipe.
BENEFITS OF OVERNIGHT OATS VS COOKED
The benefits of overnight oats are different when they are cooked vs when they are soaked. When you soak oats overnight, the process is much slower and longer than actually cooking them.
Soaking them helps the starches break down and will end up reducing the natural phytic acid. This may help your body utilize the oats nutrients more efficiently than if they were cooked.
WHAT IS THE BEST CONTAINER FOR OVERNIGHT OATS
There are lots of different options for protein overnight oats.
- Wide mouth mason jar – this option is very handy when prepping the overnight protein oats.
- Tupperware or meal prep containers – this option is great when you are prepping a bunch of protein powder overnight oats ahead of time. During the busy mornings you can just grab and go!
- A bowl – this is more so for the stay at home mom who may want to reheat your high protein overnight oats recipe in the morning!
CALORIES IN OVERNIGHT OATS
The calories in overnight oats recipes depends on many factors. If it’s a basic overnight oats flavour, something like a Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats it may be less calories than a recipe with a cream cheese greek yogurt ganache.
Something like an almond milk overnight oats will be less calories than an oat milk high protein oatmeal recipe.
An overnight oats recipe with protein powder will be more calories than a recipe without, however it will contain a lot more protein to keep you satiated throughout the day.
CAN YOU FREEZE OVERNIGHT OATS?
Yes, you absolutely can freeze these coconut overnight oats in an airtight container. It’s a great way to increase the shelf life on them.
Typically they can last up to 6 months in the freezer, however the texture and taste will change the longer they are frozen.
CAN YOU WARM UP OVERNIGHT OATS?
Overnight oats are typically served chilled, however if you prefer your protein oatmeal warm, then you can warm them up. Either remove the greek yogurt and heat the oats up in the microwave, or you can warm them over the stove.
CAN I DO DIFFERENT VARIATIONS OF THESE OATS?
Yes, you can use the same base recipe and add different thinks to make them unique flavors. Fresh fruit, cocoa powder, chocolate chips, brown sugar, almond butter, coconut flakes, cottage cheese, a dash of cinnamon, or a teaspoon of vanilla extract are all great options to switch things up.
You can also use different types of oats like old-fashioned oats or instant oats and use a different type of protein powder. Vanilla protein powder, chocolate protein powder, vegan protein powder, whey protein powder, or whatever your personal preference is.

I have made overnight oats for years but had never heard of the Greek yogurt/chocolate layer on top before this recipe. It is SO good. Makes it 10x more delicious!
I made this on valentines day and… OMG!! So good! Such a yummy and perfect valentines breakfast!
The yummiest protein overnight oats! I bought the protein powder just to make this recipe. So delicious
Oh wow. The white chocolate mixed with Greek yoghurt takes this to another level.
Thanks for this recipe it is like a desert.
I doubled up the quantities and used a scoop of Raspberry/ white chocolate protein with a scoop of vanilla protein. I also put a dash of lemon juice in the Oats before layering to lift the flavour as I love lemon and Raspberry together.
This is such an amazing recipe!! It’s so good. Do you ever use frozen raspberries? Mine expire in the fridge or counter very quickly because i live near the beach. I was thinking of getting them from the produce aisle rinsing and drying thoroughly before I freeze them in a zip lock bag
So happy you enjoyed it! I have not used frozen before but it would work totally fine. I would recommend heating them on the stove for a few minutes to break them down a bit if they are still frozen, then adding them to the oats! 🙂
