Overnight Oatmeal Recipe
This Overnight Oatmeal recipe is an easy, healthy, and simple breakfast that you can make ahead for busy mornings and customize with your favorite toppings!
Servings 4 - 6 servings
- 2 cup greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 2 cup milk of choice
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 2 cup old fashioned oats
In a mixing bowl, whisk yogurt and chia seeds together. Adding chia seeds to the yogurt will make the texture more pudding-like.
Pour in milk, vanilla extract, maple syrup, and whisk until well combined. Now add in the oats and give it a good stir.
Cover with a tight-fitting lid and refrigerate for 30 minutes to overnight.
When you’re ready to serve, add a drizzle of maple syrup and top with your favorite fruits.
Stir well, and enjoy.
- You can prep these 30 mins in advance or overnight.
- Adding almond butter or peanut butter makes these oats even creamier and gives a nutty/savory twist to the flavor.
- Do not use quick oats as they will get too soggy when soaked with milk. Also, do not use steel-cut oats because they won’t soften enough to eat with milk. Stick with plain old fashioned oats for the best results.
- If you prefer a looser consistency to your overnight oatmeal recipe, add a little more milk.
- Add your toppings just before serving. Toppings can not only prevent the soaking process from happening but throw off the liquid to oat ratio, leaving you with soggy oats!
- To make gluten-free use gluten-free oats.
- To make dairy-free use a dairy-free milk option, almond milk works great.
