Overnight Cake Batter Oats
Overnight oats are a regular breakfast for me. They are incredibly easy, and so convenient to put in tupperware for work mornings.
I even eat them on my days off, but the same old almond milk and cinnamon can get a little boring. I’m a really big fan of cake batter flavorings, especially fro-yo! Then it hit me to bring this flavor to my oatmeal. As I was looking in my cabinet, I thought hmmmm what can I do to make it taste like a vanilla cake without adding a lot of fat and calories?
Staring back at me was vanilla chai tea. Briliant!
Once I gathered some “cake like” ingredients, I thought well what’s a cake without frosting and sprinkles? So yes, this oatmeal has that too! Keep reading for a breakfast treat 🙂
For this recipe you will need:
- 1/2 cup of old fashioned oats
- 1 teaspoon of lucuma powder- superfood! (if you can’t find omit)
- 1 vanilla chai tea bag
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1/4 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 10-14 drops liquid vanilla stevia (you can use plain too)
- 1 tsp butter extract
- 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 3 Tablespoons of nonfat plain greek yogurt
- rainbow sprinkles
Start by placing your oats and lucuma powder in a glass or container. I use lucuma powder because it is a superfood, used in ice creams internationally to give recipes that “ice cream” taste. Any health food store should have it.
Next heat up your water. I use a half cup and steep my teabag, THEN add the almond milk to it.
Add to your glass, mix in the protein powder (I like to add it here because the little bit of heat from the tea dissolves easier), 1/2 tsp of butter extract and 5-7 drops of vanilla stevia.
Place in the fridge overnight to set!
In the morning take out the oats. If you like warm oats, heat in the microwave first. I actually prefer my overnight oats cold.
The “icing” is super easy. It’s just 3 TBSP of greek yogurt, 1/2 tsp of butter extract, and an additional 5-7 drops of vanilla stevia. Layer it on your oats and then top with sprinkles for fun!
This delicious breakfast dessert comes out around 260 calories and 22 grams of protein! Not too shabby for cake huh?
