5 Overnight Oat Recipes to Get You Through the Work Week

Updated: Apr 21

Happy Monday!!


Sooooo if you’re anything like me you love but hate meal prepping. Cooking/baking/prepping is very calming and soothing to me, but can be time consuming. I try to spread my meal prepping out throughout the week- making meals and food prepping for two or three day spans instead of a week. I don’t know what I want to eat a week down the road so why bother prepping that far? One thing that is super easy to prep and gives you variety- overnight oats!! Gluten free and dairy free of course, but there’s so many different ways you can make overnight oats. The options are endless, so it makes them exciting. You don’t feel like you’re eating the same thing everyday when you can mix them up.





I know oats aren’t considered paleo, but they’re a great option for when you’re in a pinch and just need to mix it up. Most mornings for breakfast I love something with a little more traditional straight protein and fat, like eggs, bacon, avocado and greens. When I get bored, oats are always my go to. Best part- if you’re not feeling oats you can always replace them with chia seeds and hemp seeds! It’s an easy swap.





So I’ve created five easy peasy overnight oat recipes that will get you through the work week. It’s so nice to just grab and go- no microwave or extra prep needed. Plus all of them are super delicious jam packed with healthy fats, protein and carbs! (And sneaky caffeine!) The best.
