Healthy Salted Caramel Overnight Oats | High Protein

Summer is here and if you’re anything like me, you crave all the fruit, smoothies, and overnight oats once temperatures start to heat up.

For me, it’s important that my breakfast is super filling and packed with protein which is why my favorite Greek yogurt to incorporate is FAGE Total 0% Plain. Its creamy delicious texture is the perfect addition to any overnight oats recipe. Oatmeal has been my go-to breakfast pretty much every single morning, but I wanted to switch things up a bit.

I was getting burnt out on my Loaded Peanut Butter Oatmeal, Strawberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats, and Mocha Protein Overnight Oats, so I decided a new flavor was necessary. You’ll definitely want to add this easy, no-added-sugar breakfast recipe to your summer meal- prep menu!

What are overnight oats?

Overnight oatmeal is a no-cook method of making oatmeal. Instead of cooking oatmeal on the stovetop or in the microwave, you soak the raw oats with milk and Greek yogurt. That soaking process allows the oats to absorb the liquid and soften them enough to eat uncooked. You only need to let the oats soak and rest in the fridge for 2 hours. But, it’s ideal if you soak it overnight…hence the name overnight oats!

The consistency is like a porridge or pudding. It makes for an easy convenient breakfast that has a more dense and creamy texture than traditional, warm oatmeal.



Are overnight oats nutritious?

Oats are loaded with good-for-you nutrients like fiber, protein, magnesium, potassium, and omega 3 fatty acids, among other things. Plus, oats don’t contain added sugar if you read the labels and avoid certain instant varieties.

These overnight oats contain a perfect balance of protein, healthy fats, fiber, and carbs to keep you full and focused for the day ahead.

Why should you add yogurt to overnight oats?

Adding Greek yogurt, specifically, FAGE Total , gives the oats a tangy flavor, creamy texture, and boost of protein. Just one 6oz serving of FAGE Total 0% Plain Greek Yogurt has 18g of protein, 90 calories, and 5g of sugar (naturally occurring, not added). 

Their Greek yogurt contains no GMO’s, artificial sweeteners, artificial flavors, or preservatives. It’s a no-brainer if you ask me. It’s perfect if you’re looking for a breakfast recipe that will keep you full until lunch!

Do you eat overnight oats hot or cold?

Overnight oats are meant to be eaten cold, however, if you prefer warm oats you always have the option to heat them up. Since you soak the oats overnight, they become soft and easy to digest making them delicious eaten cold!

Rather than the traditional method of boiling oats, overnight oats are mixed with milk and Greek yogurt and left overnight in the fridge, allowing the oats and seeds to hydrate. While you’re sleeping, overnight oats absorb the liquid, soften up, and form a texture that is perfect for breakfast.
