Overnight Protein Oats and Chia Nature Zen recipe


What you’ll need to make this easy protein Overnight Oats and Chia recipe:

  • 1 ½ cup Old-fashioned Rolled Oats⁠ (210g)
  • 2 tbsp Chia Seeds⁠
  • 7 tbsp Nature Zen Protein flavor of your choice⁠ (50g)
  • 2 cups Almond Milk (450ml)
  • 2 tbsp Maple Syrup (or Agave syrup)
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract⁠
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon⁠

Ingredient Notes

Simple, but nourishing ingredients make this an easy to make meal, inspiring healthy eating habits for the whole family.

  • Old-fashioned Rolled Oats – Old-fashioned rolled oats are a truly healthy grain. In addition to being gluten-free, this grain is a great source of minerals, vitamins and fiber. An added bonus is it helps you to feel full longer so it can help with weight management. You won’t be reaching for empty calories throughout the day when you enjoy the satiety a meal like this offers.
  • Chia Seeds – We like the Chia seed both for its nutritious contributions and also the sensation it brings when we eat it! Because it absorbs liquid when soaked, it’s raw, crunchy texture transforms and becomes soft and smooth. This tiny seed offers a lot of benefits and when added to overnight oats, you’ll be adding healthy nutrients like fiber, omega-3, anti-oxidants, and other vitamins and minerals. Gluten-free, cholesterol-free and sodium-free, chia seeds are a great way to increase the nutrition of this delicious recipe.
  • Almond Milk – Dairy-free and vegan, almond milk is a great choice when making this plant-based breakfast. Rich in vitamins D&E, almond milk is also low in sugar and calories.
  • Maple Syrup – As a Canadian company, we love to use local maple syrup in recipes but you can easily replace the maple syrup with organic agave syrup.


Comfort and nourishment in 4 easy steps.

In a bowl, add old-fashioned rolled oats, chia seeds, protein powder, and cinnamon.⁠
Stir in almond milk and vanilla extract and maple syrup.
Seal the bowl and refrigerate overnight.⁠
Serve in small jars with nut butter, fresh fruits, nuts and/or chocolate chips.⁠
