On my way to the Arnold last weekend I had to think of some good meals and snacks to pack for our 13 hour car ride. Failing to prepare would have been preparing to fail- right? Well thank goodness I made this recipe because it was absolutely delicious and great for being on the road.
All I did when I got hungry was add some stevia drops and pour a little sugar free pancake syrup on top. It was SO good!
The thing I like most about this recipe is the macronutrient ratio. It’s 170 calories, 3F/20C/15P. This leaves you with room for all the delicious toppings and add in’s you want! If you plan on eating it plain like I did on my trip, you can simply double the recipe for a more filling option. Some topping ideas include:
- peanut butter, cocoa powder, and bananas
- fresh berries and your favorite yogurt
- apples, raisins, cinnamon
- blueberries, graham cracker crumbs, cinnamon
- protein bars
- granola / crumpled granola bars
…the possibilities are endless!
Another great thing is you can make these overnight oats for the week ahead of time, and then customize each day to be a little different!
I also love how this has NO protein powder and is made from 100% natural ingredients!
- 30 g Old Fashioned Oats
- 100g Egg Whites
- 3g Chia Seeds
Combine oats, egg whites, and 1/4 cup water into bowl. Microwave on defrost setting 1 minute. Take out and stir. Microwave on defrost setting another minute. Stir and add 1/4 cup-1/2 cup water. Add chia seeds and refrigerate overnight (or for ~6hrs).
