Cinnamon Roll Overnight Oats

Do you ever find yourself dreaming of a warm, gooey cinnamon roll for breakfast in the morning? I know I do! There’s something about cinnamon and sugar that is just so good when it hits the lips! But, it also comes with a {nutritional} price – calories, fat and sugar! Cinnamon rolls are not an item that I like to have in my breakfast routine all of the time – more for that splurge day! But, this recipe today may just transform your life! 🙂 A few months ago, I shared my Strawberry Cake Batter Overnight Oats recipe and talked about my love for quick breakfasts! Today, I’m back sharing a new overnight oats recipe that will satisfy your cinnamon roll cravings without all of the high calorie/ high sugar content of normal cinnamon rolls.

Overnight oats are the perfect breakfast for those quick mornings. Time seems to escape me in the mornings, no matter how much time I give myself to get ready. Not to mention that I love to maximize my time sleeping in bed! I have found preparing my breakfast the night before allows me to have a hearty, filling breakfast without sacrificing too much time. With overnight oats, all I have to do is warm it up (if I desire) or even just eat straight out of the refrigerator. With old fashioned oats and a 1/2 cup liquid as my base, the possibilities of flavor are endless. And for this recipe, I was able to use the Whole Foods cinnamon vanilla protein powder I had in my pantry to add extra flavor without additional sugar. Let us know if you try this recipe out!

Combine 1/2 cup old fashioned oats, 1/2 cup fat free vanilla Greek yogurt, 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1 Tbsp Truvia brown sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, and 1/2-1 Tbsp protein powder in a jar (I use a 1 pint mason jar with a lid to seal). Stir and place in the refrigerator overnight (or up to 8 hours) and enjoy!

*If you decide to not use the protein powder, try adding vanilla extract and/or maple syrup for extra flavor. Feel free to add other ingredients such as chia seeds or flax seeds for additional nutrition.
