If you’re looking for an ultra-quick and nutritious breakfast, then why not give our high-protein coffee & walnut overnight oats a try? This delicious breakfast can be quickly prepped at night, so by the time you wake up, all you’ll have to worry about is the eating.
Oats plump up when left in liquid for a few hours, which makes them super-creamy and filling. They’re a great source of complex carbohydrates and fiber, and provide a slow release of energy and increased satiety due to their beta-glucan content. They’re also incredibly low in sugar – great for when you’re trying to cut down on your intake.
Why add vegan protein powder to overnight oats?
Adding vegan protein powder to your overnight oats is a great way to increase your satiety and keep you full until lunch time, as dietary protein stimulates the release of a number of satiety hormones. Also, if you’re looking to maintain and/or gain muscle mass, you need to consume enough protein every day to support muscle growth.
