If you’re not sticking a birthday candle in your overnight oats, what are you even doing with your life?! Lol. I’m looking at the pictures of these Birthday Cake Protein Overnight Oats and giggling to myself about the candle. But, hey, it helps convey the whole birthday party mood, right?? And come on, it’s hard to deny that the melty wax bubble at the top is pretty cool looking. See?
These overnight oats are exceedingly simple, as long as you have some birthday cake/cake batter/cupcake/funfetti flavored whey protein hanging around. And sprinkles, of course. Don’t forget the sprinkles. Once you’ve got those things, it’s a [birthday] party.
I topped my oats with some whipped cream, which lends even more birthday cake vibes to this breakfast. You could also top it with some Greek yogurt and fruit like blueberries or bananas. Enjoy!
- Whisk almond milk and whey protein until smooth. Add rolled oats and chia seeds and mix until combined. Note: You can also add the sprinkles here, but I prefer to mix them into the oats just before serving.
- Add the oat mixture to a resealable container or jar and refrigerate overnight.
- Serve chilled or microwave for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes before serving. Before serving, mix in sprinkles. Top with whipped cream or Greek yogurt if desired.
