Overnight Protein Porridge

Overnight Protein Porridge

We just wrapped up our Live 10 Day Health Challenge winter launch and WOW what a success! We had great feedback and people participating from all over the world. You can click here to see a few testimonials. While we’re busy putting the finishing touches on the SPRING menu, I wanted to share one of my favorite easy breakfast recipes.

Mornings can be hectic and sometimes we only have enough time to grab n’ go on our way out the door, am I right? This easy Overnight Protein Porridge recipe, adapted from Claudine at Cooking with Claudine, taste like an oatmeal raisin cookie but is actually good for you.

At the 10 Day Health Challenge,
Quick breakfasts are what we’re good at.

Just ask our past Challengers: “OMG the Instant Mason Jar Oats are sooooooo good, I’m hooked!” (that’s a real quote by the way).

This recipe also checks all the healthy breakfast boxes:
•    Fast & easy
•    Full of nutrients and healthy fats
•    Gluten-free, dairy-free, & sugar-free
•    Whole food ingredients
•    Complete plant-based protein
•    Delicious
•    Inexpensive

Plus, you can prepare a weeks worth of Overnight Protein Porridge in individual jars so all you have to do is pour in your milk of choice the night before.

Mine’s already sitting in the fridge, ready for tomorrow morning.

chia seeds with heart

 

Ingredients:

2 Tbs. whole oats

2 Tbs. chia seeds

2 Tbs. hemp hearts

1 Tbs. raw buckwheat groats

1 Tbs. raisins or currants

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1-2 Tbs. protein powder like this one or this one

1/2 cup non-dairy milk of your choice

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 Tbs. slivered almonds

1 Tbs. shredded coconut

Directions:

Combine the first seven ingredients in a 6 oz. jar or small container with a lid. The night before, add the milk, vanilla and few tablespoons of water (or more if you like it thinner). Mix well and store in the fridge. The next morning and before serving, top with slivered almonds and shredded coconut. Optional to drizzle with honey or maple syrup.
 
Note: Instead of “overnight” oats, you just add boiling water instead of milk, give it a stir, top on the lid, and wait patiently for a few minutes before indulging. Equally fast and just as nourishing!
