  • Yield: 1 servings


1/2cup rolled oats
1cup milk (almond, soy, or coconut milk, if preferred)
pinch of sea salt
1tablespoon protein powder of choice (optional)
sweetener of choice: stevia, coconut sugar, maple syrup, or honey
nut butter, cocoa or raw cacao powder, no-sugar-added jam, shredded coconut, smashed fruit, ground flax meal, chia seeds, cinnamon


  1. Combine the oats, milk, and salt in a bowl or jar. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
