There is something comforting about a bowl of oatmeal! In the past, I used to love to get the flavored instant packets and use that as my go-to breakfast. It was easy to do any only took a minute. However, on days I was late for work, I wouldn’t have time to cook an instant breakfast.
Recently I have discovered the art of overnight oats. All you have to do is put the ingredients together at night (or whenever) and stick it in the refrigerator for an instant breakfast in the morning. This version of Cookies and Cream Overnight Oats has only three ingredients. Also, the best part is it’s packed with protein and low in sugar!

You can use Shakeology or any protein powder, but I like to use the Quest Cookies and Cream protein powder for this version. The shakes are delicious, and their protein powders work well in recipes!
For my 21 Day Fix friends, count this recipe as 1 Red and 1 Yellow. For full disclosure, the cookies shown in the picture are for decorative use only (bummer). If you need an Oreo fix, take two cookies and count them as a treat swap. ONLY TWO COOKIES!! (I know it’s tempting to just go crazy with those things. It’s why I prefer the Quest powder – guilt free and delicious!)
