Easy Overnight Oats Recipe
With endless flavor options and a delicious creamy consistency, this overnight oats recipe is the perfect make-ahead breakfast for busy mornings.
- ½ cup gluten-free rolled oats
- ⅔ cup milk, homemade oat milk, almond milk, water or coconut milk (coconut milk tends to over-thicken the oats so I recommend a 50/50 mix of coconut milk and water)
- ¼ cup yogurt (We use this dairy-free coconut yogurt and love it, but Greek yogurt is also a good option that makes it super creamy)
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1-2 tbsp liquid sweetener (maple syrup or honey - a small amount of stevia or monk fruit could be substituted)
- ¼ tsp vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
Add oats, chia seeds, and salt to a jar. Stir to mix.
Next, add in the yogurt, sweetener, vanilla, and milk. Stir, then cover the jar with a lid.
Place the jar in the fridge for at least 6 hours. If you're adding spices or flavored extracts, stir them into the milk before pouring.
The next morning, add desired mix-ins, then serve.
Calculations are based on dairy milk, maple syrup as a sweetener. Salt is not factored into the estimate.
