This high protein overnight oatmeal with cottage cheese packs AT LEAST 20 grams of protein without added protein powder - with lots of flavor ideas!





  1. Add cottage cheese to a high-powered blender. Blend, starting on low and slowly increasing to medium-high speed, until completely smooth and silky. The blended cottage cheese will resemble yogurt when done.
  2. Distribute blended cottage cheese, oatmeal, almond milk, and maple syrup (if using) between 4 containers. Stir each with a spoon to incorporate.
  3. Refrigerate overnight. Will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
