My Recipe For Overnight Oats

My Recipe For Overnight Oats

Overnight oats have become a fast sensation at my house. It took me a few times and recipes to find the one we all liked best. My friend Freida started me out and I was able to tailor the recipe to our tastes at home. I love that it’s easy to make and I can make jars of them ahead of time for the week. I even fill some jars only half way to keep them as a quick protein snack midday.


2 cups of steel-cut oats or rolled oats (if you use steel-cut oats, use a half cup LESS of almond milk)

2 cups of almond milk

2 tsp chia seeds

1 cup of yogurt (greek or regular, I’ve used vanilla and strawberry banana)

dash of vanilla (you can also use vanilla almond milk above)

2 full tbsp of creamy peanut butter (you can also use pb2 powder)

scoop of protein powder

tsp of honey

mini chocolate chips (add to taste/optional)

crushed/chopped nuts (add to taste/optional)

fruit (add to taste, whichever you like best)

dash of cinnamon (optional)



Fills about 5 to 6 half-pint jars

Grab a big bowl and get all your ingredients ready. Start with the oats, then, add your milk of choice. Most often I use gluten-free steel-cut oats.

Add in chia seeds, yogurt, vanilla, protein powder and peanut butter (optional dash of cinnamon). I also drop a teaspoon of honey since I tend to use unsweetened almond milk.

Next, I add a handful of mini chocolate chips. We love the crunch and taste. If you want to make it extra chocolaty you can also add a tsp of mocha powder. If chocolate chips aren’t your thing, add chopped up versions of your favorite nuts, folding them into the mixture.

We love a lot of fruit, I especially love chopped up chunks of strawberries. Typically, we throw in what we’ve got in the fridge, most often that’s bananas, raspberries and strawberries. You can do blueberries or blackberries too, and even add in a sprinkle or two of shredded coconut.

Finish stirring everything together and spoon into half-pint jars. Refrigerate overnight, or at least four hours.

Once you get a base recipe down, you can really customize the entire thing to your family’s preference. They’re delish and so easy to make, and best of all, they’re ready to go!
