Overnight Oats Recipe

Hey Friends! Yesterday in my post I shared a picture of the Overnight Oats I’d made and I raved about because they were so good! After getting Instagram DM’s about wanting my oat recipe and then a few blog comments, I decided to push that post to next week to give the people what they wanted! haha!

I just recently heard how my neighbor makes Overnight Oats all the time and her kids love them. So I’d just recently reached out to her to get her recipe. I also scoured Pinterest and kind of combined everything I’d been reading with my neighbors to come up with my first attempt at Overnight Oats.

A couple things to note…

*You know how some people give driving directions like, “Go north on Hwy 77 and turn east”? I feel like those same people are super precise with their recipe instructions. I roll more like, “Turn right at the Chick-fil-A and then make a left at Starbucks”. Keep that in mind when you’re reading the post. I did my best, but I kind of just throw some things in and here there. 😉

*The consistency of the oats the next day are mushy. I love a mushy cereal {yes, in college I’d pour my bowl of cereal then go get ready while my cereal got soggy} so this is absolutely my jam. However, if you have a sensory thing and don’t like foods like that, I’m not sure these will be your favorite.

*The VERY best part about these oats are you can top them with ANYTHING! We’ve added strawberries, blueberries, bananas, and honey so far and have been fans of it all!

Let’s get right to my Overnight Oat recipe…

These are the ingredients…protein powder, old fashioned oats, chia seeds, Greek yogurt, and not pictured-unsweetened almond milk.

*My grocery store only had this giant jars in stock when I decided this was the week I was going to try this out so I doubled up the recipe in each jar. Keep that in mind. My numbers are doubled so just half these if you have small jars.

I dumped in one cup of old fashioned oats, one entire Greek yogurt, one full scoop of protein powder, and two tablespoons of chia seeds.

I forgot to take a picture of the unsweetened milk so wanted you to see what I used. And then I filled up the empty yogurt container with the milk and then dumped that in.

Then I stirred them all up, sealed the lids, and shook them up just a bit before placing them in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, I’ll have six servings of Overnight Oats. Each of us will add our favorite toppings and I’ll feel like I did a good job starting everyone off with a nice healthy breakfast.

This was a little picture of my early lunch on Tuesday. I thought it was delicious with the strawberries and blueberries.

One more thing we’re looking forward to doing is tweaking a few ingredients to have a completely different flavor. For instance, different flavors of protein powder, different Greek yogurts, and even adding in peanut butter or chocolate chips would be fun.

The sky’s the limit, friends! And trust me-it’s SO EASY!

Now it’s YOUR turn to share!! What’s your favorite go to breakfast?! I’d love to get another idea under my breakfast belt!

Thanks for reading today!
