White Chocolate Blueberry Overnight Oats

Lots of overnight oats lately. They are just so easy and delicious! You can get really creative with them. Experiment with different flavors by using extracts, fruits, flavored protein powders, nuts, etc. I had sugar-free white chocolate pudding mix on hand so I mixed it in for some white chocolate infusion. Note: Microwave times will vary. Keep an eye on it while its cooking so it doesn't overflow. Alternatively, you can cook them on the stove. Either way, make sure you stir the egg whites in really well when you add them at the end. No one likes clumpy oatmeal!


White Chocolate Blueberry Overnight Oats

 Ingredients:

1/3 cup blueberries
1/4 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup water or almond milk (or any milk)
1 packet stevia
1 tablespoon sugar-free White Chocolate pudding mix (Jell-O)
1/4 cup egg whites
1/2 tablespoon chia seeds (can omit, but really helps to thicken the oats)

Directions:

1. Place the blueberries in a bowl. Microwave 20-30 seconds, or until soft. Set aside.
2. In a separate bowl, mix together the oatmeal, water (or milk), stevia, and pudding mix. Microwave for 40 seconds. Stir. Microwave in 20 second intervals (stirring in between) until most of the liquid is absorbed.
3. Stir in the egg whites. Microwave another 20-30 seconds. Stir in chia seeds. Let sit in the fridge overnight and eat cold in the morning! I topped mine with vanilla cream (1/4 cup greek yogurt mixed with 1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein and stevia)

I also topped mine with P28 White Chocolate Peanut Butter. It's high in protein, low in sugar, and tastes like heaven. I order mine from Vitacost. Use the link for money off your first order!
