If you love gingerbread cookies you will love these chia seed gingerbread overnight oats. The flavour and texture is reminiscent¬†of gingerbread cookie dough but they’re packed with natural, energizing carbohydrates and are low in fat and high in protein.




  1. Add all the dry ingredients to a jar, bowl or container and stir to combine. Add the almond milk and mix well, making sure there are no clumps.
  2. Place in the fridge for at least an hour up to overnight.
  3. In the morning, add any toppings you desire and dig in!


To make this without protein powder, I’d suggest increasing the oats up to 50 grams or 1/2 cup, reducing the liquid to 1 cup and adding an additional sweetener such as 1 tbsp pure maple syrup or stevia to taste, if desired. I haven’t tried this recipe without protein powder though so I can’t guarantee results.
