Ingredients for
Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are incredible simple to make. All you need is a few key ingredients.


Old-fashioned rolled oats are the best, as they absorb the liquid very well and give a creamy texture.

Milk (+ Yogurt)

Add any type of milk. Also add Greek or dairy-free yogurt (optional) to make it more filling and super-creamy.

Chia Seeds

Optional, but adds fiber, protein, and omega-3. Plus it gives the oats a thicker, better texuture.


Add a pinch of salt to bring out the flavor. Stir in flavorings like cinnamon, vanilla, jam, or honey. Nutritional add-ins include protein powder.


Toppings include dried or fresh fruit, chopped nuts, nut butter, or chocolate chips.
