Cinnamon Raisin Overnight Oats

If you love oatmeal raisin cookies you’re going to go crazy for these cinnamon raisin overnight oats. Loaded with cinnamon flavor and studded with raisins, these oats are vegan, gluten-free and packed with protein.

I’m back with another overnight oats recipe! Anyone complaining? Didn’t think so. 😉 I love making new overnight oats recipes because the flavor combinations are endless!

I always make sure I get plenty of healthy fat, protein and fiber into all of my meals — especially breakfast. This helps satisfy my taste buds and keeps me fuller, longer. Oatmeal used to be one of those breakfasts that didn’t fill me up for long – mainly because I would eat sugary instant oats a.k.a carb overload without much protein or healthy fat. But now things are different. When I make oats I strategically add protein and healthy fat so they’ll keep me full until lunch. 

For the protein side of things I typically reach for protein powder or Greek yogurt. My favorite protein powders are plant-based and right now I’m hooked on IdealRaw. I usually keep vanilla and chocolate on hand because they’re easy to use with just about any recipe, but I’m also loving IdealRaw’s peanut butter chocolate protein powder right now. It’s so good, even just mixed with almond milk in a blender bottle. 

For these oats I’m using vanilla because the flavor compliments perfectly. Read more about my favorite protein powders here: the best plant-based protein powders.

On to the rest of the recipe! Inspired by an oatmeal raisin cookie (the best!) and this regular oatmeal raisin oatmeal, I wanted to create an overnight oats version. I personally prefer overnight oats in the summer because I want all of the cold, refreshing foods instead of warm, comforting foods (which I prefer in the fall and winter).

There’s a good chance you have all of these ingredients on hand so bookmark this recipe for when you feel like you don’t have anything for breakfast meal prep. This recipe is extra easy because you can throw all of the ingredients in the container the night before so in the morning you only have to stir and enjoy! Bonus points: it takes less than five minutes to prep. Everyone has time for this healthy breakfast!

Cinnamon Raisin Overnight Oats

Description

If you love oatmeal raisin cookies you’re going to go crazy for these cinnamon raisin overnight oats. Loaded with cinnamon flavor and studded with raisins, these oats are vegan, gluten-free and packed with protein.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup rolled old-fashioned oats
  • 1 scoop vanilla plant-based protein powder
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 Tablespoon chia seeds (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • 12 teaspoons maple syrup (optional)

Instructions

  1. Add oats, protein powder, almond milk, chia seeds (if using) vanilla, cinnamon and raisins into a bowl or jar. Stir well to combine, until all the protein powder has dissolved. Seal container with a lid and place in the fridge overnight.
  2. Take the container out of the fridge the next morning and stir the mixture. You’ll notice that the oats soak up a lot of the liquid so you may want to add a little more almond milk before serving. Top oats with a few extra raisins and a drizzle of maple syrup (if using) and enjoy.

  1. This recipe looks delicious! But would it work without the protein powder (or is there a good alternative) as I don’t really like protein powder and its not easily accessible where I live.
    Thanks!

    • Yes! It will definitely work without the protein powder. A couple things to note if you simply leave out the protein powder — you might want to use a little less liquid because the protein powder does soak up some of the liquid. And you might also want to add the optional maple syrup because the vanilla protein powder adds a little sweetness that you might be missing without it. Another idea is to use 1/4 cup of yogurt in place of the protein powder if you still want the added protein boost. Hope this helps. Let me know if you try the recipe!
