If I want a stress-free morning that doesn’t include last-minute breakfast brainstorming, I meal prep the night before. But what I consider meal prepping the next morning’s breakfast isn’t as daunting as it might sound. Hello, overnight oats! I am a big fan of the make-before-bed meal because it’s not only easy to put together, but overnight oats are ready to be enjoyed first thing in the morning.

To help you start the day off right, I shared three of my favorite overnight oats recipes – made with Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer – with Lively. Ordinarily used in coffee, this Collagen Creamer can also be incorporated in most collagen recipes like Mocha Fat Bombs and Chocolate Mocha Banana Bread. Why you’ll love this Collagen Creamer: It’s not only free of gluten, dairy, and artificial sweeteners, but it also helps to support healthier hair, skin, nails, and joints. And that’s not all – Collagen Creamer fans may even experience an energy boost thanks to the MCTs found in coconut milk powder.

Before you get started on these overnight oats recipes, keep the following tips in mind:

  • All of these recipes can also be enjoyed warm! After leaving the oats overnight, you can just heat them up in the morning in the microwave or stove top. Sprinkle on some toppings afterwards!
  • Depending on how you prefer the consistency of your oats, if you like them thicker then you can add another scoop of Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer. If you prefer them more water-y and loose, then simply add more of your milk of choice prior to leaving it in the fridge overnight.
  • Add flax seeds to any overnight oats recipe for extra fiber!
  • For nut alternatives, substitute with pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, or watermelon seeds!
  • Another tasty add-in to your overnight oats is a mashed banana. This gives it a natural sweetness!
  • Not a fan of oats? Chia seeds can also be used in place of the oats. Replace oat ingredients in any of the recipes with two tablespoons of chia seeds and ½ cup of non-dairy milk.
