Overnight Oats

Simple, easy and delicious. A great way to start your day off with a nutritious breakfast on all those busy school (or early workout) mornings.

All you need is equal parts raw rolled oats, milk and yogurt (1/4cup – 1/3cup is plenty per person) and chia seeds.

You can use any kind of yogurt or milk. I use almond milk and goat yogurt. Try coconut milk and coconut yogurt. Or go for cow’s milk and Greek yogurt if lactose doesn’t bother you.

Put in the fridge overnight.I use small mason jars. They’re super cheap right now ($5 for 12) being that it’s canning season. They also seal tightly. Perfect for those extra busy mornings when you just throw one in your bag on the way out the door.

Get the basic four ingredients down then jazz it up with toppings on a day-to-day basis depending on your mood.  Add the toppings the night before or the next morning – either way works.

There is NO COOKING involved at all! …unless you want to heat it quickly the next morning..but, really, that’s just extra work.

Basic Recipe

1/4 cup rolled oats

1/4 – 1/3 cup milk (depending on how thick you like it)

1/4 cup plain yogurt

1/4 tbsp chia seeds

Pinch salt

Directions:

Stir everything together in a bowl, tuperware, or your mason jar. Place in fridge overnight. Reminder that this is the very basic recipe. To make this much more delicious and kid-friendly mix in fruit, nuts, and any other variety of ingredients. Be creative!

Topping Suggestions:

  • Blueberries and maple syrup
  • Apple sauce and ground cinnamon
  • Banana and unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Banana and all natural almond or peanut butter
  • Peaches and honey
  • Almond extract and honey
  • Raspberries and vanilla extract
