  • bowl


  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger ground
  • 1/2 cup almond milk unsweetened
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 tablespoon molasses
  • Pinch of ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon ground
  • Pinch of salt


Step 1: Combine Dry Ingredients

  • In a bowl or jar, add the rolled oats, vanilla protein powder, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, pinch of nutmeg, pinch of ground cloves, and a pinch of salt. Stir the dry ingredients together until they are evenly mixed.

Step 2: Mix Wet Ingredients

  • Pour the unsweetened almond milk and Greek yogurt into the bowl or jar with the dry ingredients. Add the molasses as well. Use a spoon or spatula to thoroughly mix all the ingredients together until well combined.

Step 3: Refrigerate Overnight

  • Once all the ingredients are mixed, cover the bowl or jar and place it in the refrigerator. Let the mixture sit overnight to allow the oats to absorb the liquid and the flavors to meld together.

Step 4: Serve

  • The next morning, take the gingerbread overnight oats out of the refrigerator. Give it a stir to ensure everything is still well mixed. If desired, you can add fresh fruits, nuts, coconut, or dried fruit as toppings. Serve the overnight oats cold and enjoy a delicious and nutritious breakfast!


  • Use old-fashioned rolled oats for the best texture and consistency.
  • Adjust the sweetness level by adding more or less molasses to suit your taste preferences.
  • Experiment with different variations of protein powder to customize the recipe to your dietary needs.
  • For a creamier texture, mix the ingredients in a blender before refrigerating.
  • Enhance the gingerbread flavor by adding a dash of vanilla extract or a sprinkle of orange zest to the mixture.
