  • 2 cup rolled oats
  • 4 scoops vanilla protein powder optional * see notes
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/4 maple syrup or honey
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 1/4 cups milk of choice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Fresh strawberries to serve


  • To a blender, add all the ingredients. Blend for 8 to 10 seconds, or just until combined. Do not over-blend.
  • Divide the oatmeal to 8 mason jars, cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Serve with fresh strawberries and enjoy!


  • You may use quick oats in a pinch but we much prefer rolled oats when making overnight oats
  • Peanut butter: we love the taste of peanut butter but feel free to use any other nut butter
  • Use honey or maple syrup. Even agave works.
  • Protein powder: any protein powder will work. Plant-based or any flavor of choice. You may skip the protein powder for more yogurt.
  • If you choose to skip the protein powder, swap it with 1/4 cup yogurt** you may also sub this with 2-3 tablespoons of chia seeds 
  • Berries: any berries or fruit of choice will work.
  • milk: served best when using 2% milk. But you may use any milk like almond milk.
