I am absolutely obsessed with overnight oats at the moment.
I tend to go through breakfast phases where I’ll consistently eat one thing until all of a sudden I change it up, and that previous item doesn’t make it back into the rotation for a loonnnnng while. It’s not that I get sick of that breakfast item, I just become infatuated with one of the many other options there are to try! Gotta love breakfast food 🙂
Right, so overnight oats. Honestly, I don’t even measure out the ingredients anymore. I scoop a bunch of yogurt into a plastic container, grab a handful of outs right out of the bag or jar,
sprinkle dump in some chia seeds, and finally pour in a generous amount of milk before stirring all of the ingredients together.
It’s not rocket science 😀
However, if it’s your first time making overnight oats, you might want a few numbers and measurements in there to make put your mind at ease. (Because it’s just so stressful making breakfast…).
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 3/4 cup-1 cup Greek yogurt (can use flavoured)
- 1.5 Tbsp chia seeds
- 2/3 cup milk (regular or Almond milk)
- Optional but highly recommended: frozen or fresh fruit (mango, peaches, blueberries, strawberries, banana)
- Optional: if you didn’t use flavoured Greek yogurt, you might want to add a Tbsp of sweetener, such as maple syrup or honey
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir until well mixed. Mixture should be left runny, as the chia seeds will cause it to thicken overnight.
- Cover and set in fridge for at least 30 minutes, or up to overnight.
- Remove from fridge and top with fruit, nut butter, seeds, or other yummy things!
