Easy Overnight Oats

Skip to Recipe

Anyone who has read my previous posts will know that I am a huge fan of oats. Most of the weekdays, I like to start my day with a bowl of warm oatmeal. But as the summer months draw closer, I make the switch from a warm bowl of oatmeal to a pre-packed jar of overnight oats. These overnight oats are enticing enough to get even a late riseršŸ˜‰out of bed.

What is Overnight Oats?

Overnight oatmeal is a make-ahead breakfast option that is prepared the night before, giving you an instant healthy breakfast the next morning. It is easy to prepare(no cooking involved!) and perfect for those hectic mornings when you don't have the time to make breakfast. To make overnight oats, we need to soak rolled oats in milk and yogurt overnight that gives it the soft, creamy texture. In the morning, you can add your favorite toppings-fresh fruits and nuts and your healthy, satisfying breakfast is ready to rock.

Do you eat Overnight Oats hot or cold?

Overnight oats are meant to be eaten cold. You can also reheat overnight oatmeal in the microwave the next morning for a minute if you don't prefer to have it cold.

  • Use plain old fashioned rolled oats-I recommend using plain rolled oats for this recipe. Quick oats will get too soggy when soaked with milk.
  • Make a batch for the whole week-Overnight oats typically stay good in the fridge for up to 5 days, if kept in airtight containers. So you can stir together a batch during your weekend meal prep and you'll be left with your grab-and-go breakfast for the whole week.
  • Vegan Option-This recipe can be easily turned vegan if you choose non-dairy yogurt and milk.
  • Make it in a jar-You can make the oats in jars. This makes it a breakfast-on-the-go option, ready to go with you wherever you head in the morning.
