You can never be prepared enough when it comes to meals on the go. Sometimes “meal prep” can sound daunting, but I promise this Raspberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats recipe will take you less than two minutes to make. Sounds too good to be true, right? Cheesecake, healthy breakfast and fast? I have been a repeat offender of defaulting to eggs or a protein shake as my “on-the-go” breakfast option, but that can get boring after a while. Who’s with me?
Oats are a great choice for breakfast. Don’t worry, I didn’t forget about the protein! This Raspberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats recipe includes cottage cheese, which has 14 grams of protein per serving. For those of you who hear “cottage cheese” and run for the hills, stick with me. After combining the oats, cottage cheese and almond milk with the berries, honey and vanilla and allow to sit in the fridge overnight, you’ll have a delicious breakfast waiting for you in the morning…and you won’t think twice about the cottage cheese.
For an extra-healthy, protein-rich boost, top off the Raspberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats with hemp seeds and you’ll have a full 30 grams of protein without using eggs or protein powder. Hemp seeds are a great plant-based source of protein and full of essential amino acids. Of course, you can always eat the Raspberry Cheesecake Overnight Oats straight out of the container, but you are welcome to top it with raspberries, your favorite nuts, yogurt, granola or nut butter—get creative and enjoy!
