Prep: 10 Minutes | | Servings: 1 cup

Overnight Oats

  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick cooking oats)
  • 2 cups almond milk or milk of choice
  • 1 cup plain Greek or nondairy yogurt
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup or honey

Additional toppings:

  • Blueberry: blueberries (fresh, frozen or dried) and chopped walnuts
  • Pina Colada: pineapple tidbits, 1 tablespoon coconut, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • PB&J: jam on bottom, peanut butter on top
  • Pear: diced pear, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and chopped pecans
  • Caramel Apple: diced apple, caramel sauce, and chopped peanuts
  • Chocolate Raspberry: raspberries (fresh or frozen) 1-2 teaspoons cocoa powder, chocolate mini-chips

To make the base, in a medium bowl, mix together the oats, milk, yogurt, chia seeds, and maple syrup/honey. Stir until combined. Portion 1 cup servings into 4 wide-mouth 16-ounce canning jars (or other airtight container) and top with any additional “toppings” as desired. These “toppings” can be stirred into the base recipe, or customize each jar by putting separately in the bottom of the jar before filling. The possibilities are endless. Place lids on and refrigerate overnight. When refrigerated, these overnight oats can last for up to 5 days.
