  • water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh blueberries
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Toss oats in a glass lunch container. Add apple, yogurt, protein powder, chia seeds, and peanut butter. Add enough water to make a watery pudding; the chia seeds will soak up any extra liquid over time. Cover and refrigerate, 8 hours to overnight. Garnish with blueberries before serving.

  • Cook's Notes:

    Cut up the apple into small pieces. I chop them small because I like to get a piece or two with every bite because the crunch feels soooo good. My husband loves peanut butter in his oatmealbut I skip the peanut butter for myself.

    The vanilla protein powder provides a nice creamy texture to the oats as well as you don’t need to add any honey or maple syrupsince the protein powder makes up for it.
