4 Anything But Bland Overnight Oats

When I heard that oatmeal was one of the top milk supply boosting foods, I began eating it daily postpartum. Fortunately, there are endless variations and flavours of oats so it never gets boring! My personal favourite way is to eat overnight oats straight out of the fridge- but you can also reheat these recipes if desired.

I am using quick oats for all these recipes, as I find it works best for overnight oats. These recipes lean more towards moderate calorie counts and perfect for a snack that is filling and can fit in your deficit.

My favourite time to eat my overnight oats is around 4pm as a higher carb, pre-workout snack to give me energy. If I do eat them for breakfast, I usually add a scoop of protein powder in to up the protein count as I aim to have at least 25g of protein at my first meal.
