The short answer is, no! Even though they are called “overnight” oats, you do not have to soak them overnight. The purpose of soaking them is to soften the oats. You can serve these protein overnight oats after soaking them in the fridge for about 2-3 hours. When you soak them for just a couple of hours vs overnight, they will have a chewier texture. The beauty of letting them soak overnight is that you can meal prep them ahead of time to be ready for you in the morning.
Yes! this vegan overnight oats recipe is a healthy breakfast option for busy mornings since it great source of dietary fiber as well as protein and healthy fats. These protein overnight oats can be more filling than other recipes thanks to the extra protein from the protein powder.
Overnight oats are usually eaten cold but if you prefer warm oats, you can pop them into the microwave for a minute or two and serve them hot. The beauty of chilled overnight oats is that you can eat them on the go. I prefer eating them cold as an alternative to a bowl of hot oatmeal in the summer.
Store your overnight oats in an airtight container overnight. You can use any tupperware you like or you could even make it in a mason jar. You can prep 2-3 days worth of overnight oats at once, but storing them for more than 3 days in the fridge they start to get too mushy.
Look for a vegan protein powder if you want to make sure these overnight oats are vegan. Vegan protein powders usually contain pea protein. You’ll want to avoid protein powders that contain whey protein as this is a milk product so these powders are not vegan. Just one scoop of protein powder adds an additional 20 grams of protein to this recipe!
