Oatmeal may very well be my favorite breakfast ever. And then I tried breakfast quinoa, and let me tell you, that comes pretty darn close! I started playing around with a bunch of my oatmeal recipes, and came up with my new favorite breakfast. Cinnamon raisin protein oats and quinoa.
And then I topped it again.
I realized I wouldn’t have time in the morning to make this delicious breakfast so I had to test out an overnight recipe. Ohhhhhh man! I’m in love.
Overnight Cinnamon Raisin Protein Oats & Quinoa
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 cup milk / I use almond milk
2 tbsp protein powder / I use Cinnamon Swirl About Time Whey
1/2 banana, mashed
1/2 tbsp chia seed
1/2 tbsp raisins
1/2 tbsp sliced almonds
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp nut butter / I use 1/2 almond butter & 1/2 peanut butter (optional)
Add all ingredients into a bowl or container and mix until well combined. Refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, top with your nut butter and enjoy!
Or, if you’re like me and don’t like the cold oats, toss it into the microwave for 1-2 minutes and then top with nut butter and enjoy 🙂
And now onto the winners of the CalNaturale Svelte giveaway!! The winners were chosen by an online randomizer to make it fair for everyone 🙂

I’d love to try the chai flavor! They all sound good enough to enjoy on their own.

I tweeted your giveaway, followed CaliNaturale on Twitter, AND also want to try the chocolate so I can make that tasty looking Peanut Butter Cup Protein Shake because, I’ll be honest, substituting the Chai gave it quite an interesting kick…
