On-The-Go Proatmeal Parfait

On-The-Go Proatmeal Parfait

This recipe is great for early mornings, time crunches or just non-morning people who want to cut down on their morning tasks. As usual, the measurements below are one example of how this recipe can play out - I switch it up depending on what my macronutrient needs are for the day/week.

Here's a few variations
Want more fat? Top with some almond slices or put melted coconut oil into the oat batter!
Need more protein? Add a bit more water and bump up to a full scoop of protein!
Want less carbs? use 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup greek yogurt and 1/4 cup fruit!
Need more flavour? Cinnamon! Mmmm!

If you reduce the water substantially, you may want to cut the chia seeds down to 1/2 TBSP - or it will get quite thick!

3/4 Cup Old Fashion Oats
3/4 Cup Water
3/4 Cup Plain Fat Free Greek Yogurt
1 TBSP Stevia (to taste)
1 TBSP Chia Seeds
1/2 Cup Blueberries (or fruit of choice)
*Optional 1/2 Scoop Vanilla Whey Protein

In a small bowl, mix all ingredients excluding blueberries (add Oats last)
Place half of the oat mixture on the bottom of a tupperware or sealable container
Layer Blueberries
Top with remaining oat mixture
Let sit (2 hours minimum)

I make this the night before so that I have my breakfast ready to go!
