Easy Protein Overnight Oats

reader review

"You nailed it! I am a huge oatmeal lover, but trying to lessen my carbs so going down to the 1/4 cup makes me feel better about eating oatmeal again. Even better, my teenage kids are loving it which is a total win because it gives us another easy option and I love knowing that I’m setting them up with balanced nutrition for the day.” - Debbie
