Overnight oats are great for anyone on-the-go! Whether you’re in school, work full time, or a busy parent on the go, overnight oats are incredibly filling and easy to take with you.
This recipe is great because you can add anything you want to this base. You can easily change out the type of milk you’re using or the flavor of yogurt you’re using in order to get a completely different overnight oats taste. You can also top your oats with whatever you’d like!
I’ve tried overnight oats before and honestly, I wasn’t a huge fan. This recipe made me love overnight oats! The chia seed are key and completely change the texture!
Here are some of my favorite toppings/yogurt combinations…
Peanut butter powder/vanilla yogurt
Peanut butter powder/Triple Zero chocolate yogurt
Raspberry jam (or any jam)/plain yogurt
Fresh blueberries and lemon zest/vanilla yogurt
Fresh strawberries and pecans/plain yogurt
Again, you can really do whatever you want with this base. I use unsweetened plain almond milk, but I also think the base would be great with plain almond milk or cashew milk.
- ⅓ cup yogurt (your choice)
- ½ cup rolled oats (do not use quick oats)
- ⅔ cup milk (your choice)
- 1 TBSP chia seeds
- pinch of salt
- Combine everything and refrigerate overnight. You can add whatever toppings into the base. Nuts, fresh fruit, peanut butter, jam, you name it. Oats get better the longer they sit. I usually make 2-4 jars at a time.
