Chilled Oats

Chilled Oats

My day starts before the sun comes up and I often don’t make it back home until well after dinnertime. So, I’m often eating my meals on the go and without access to a stove top, oven or microwave. Despite the cooler temps setting in, I still eat a lot of cold foods out of convenience and necessity! This dish takes me from summer to wintertime, keeping me fueled and ready for the day and my training ahead.

Ingredients

1 scoop whey protein powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup steel-cut oats
1 teaspoon flaxseed
2 tablespoons chopped toasted almonds*
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
fruit for topping (optional)

Directions

  1. Mix all dry ingredients together thoroughly.
  2. Add wet ingredients except for the fruit topping. Stir until dry and wet ingredients are fully combined.
  3. Refrigerate overnight.
  4. Top with desired fruit and serve – or pack into an airtight container and take to go!

* To toast almonds, chop into pieces and spread evenly on a foil-lined baking sheet. Roast at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes, flip the almonds every 3-4 minutes keeping them in a single layer. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.
