Oatmeal is a great choice everytime you need a source of complex carbs. Nutritionally speaking, however, it lacks your protein and healthy fats. The healthy fats have always been easy to add, but protein is a little trickier. This concoction from Chef Bob not only makes protein oatmeal easy, but delicious to boot.
So is overnight oatmeal just oatmeal that you leave in the fridge overnight? Well, yeah, it is. But this preparation is much easier than trying to make hot oatmeal and then add protein scoops to it. It also thickens up nicely and comes out with a richer flavor with those extra hours to marinate, and absolutely no heating is required!
You’ll want the versatile Cake Batter flavor of Cellcucor COR-Performance Whey Protein for this one.

The Chef Bob Transcription
“Welcome back guys, we’re gonna be busting the Cor-Fetti Cake Batter back out. We’ve had a lot of good feedback coming in on the flavor since it was released, and this is just a very simple recipe I can’t believe I haven’t even posted yet, that a lot of people enjoy on a daily basis — it’s called Overnight Oatmeal.
Now, what is Overnight Oatmeal? Well, it’s pretty much making oatmeal, leaving it in the fridge for a long period, and it’s already completed and done. Now how do you do that? Well, what I’m gonna do today is take one scoop of the Cor-Fetti Cake Batter (a little bit under 30 grams), a half a cup of oatmeal (using the Myoatmeal.com blend), PB Lean Vanilla Frosting since the vanilla will go really well with the Cor-Fetti Cake Batter flavoring, eight grams of vanilla sugar-free fat-free pudding mix, that’s what I have in my bowl right here.
So add the wet to the dry, and guys, all you do is mix it then put it in the fridge. Let it sit four to six hours minimum, but it’s fine to leave it in overnight. All you do is let it thicken up, and this is a perfect treat you can take on the go. Put it in Tupperware, take it to work, it comes out to around 40g of protein, 55g of carbs because of the added PB Lean and the pudding mix, and only five grams of fat. If you do want more fat, some things to add are peanut butter, nut butters, anything along that line. Throw in some trail mix, throw in some fresh berries on top.
So you can see it mixed up, it’s not the thickest right now, but like I said we leave it in the fridge and we are good to go. Be seeing you guys around!”
