Recipe: How to Make Overnight Oats
I think the day I discovered overnight oats my life sort of changed. Prior to this discovery I hated oats (cooking technique makes a lot of difference).
I discovered overnight oats by chance and since then I have tweaked and tried quite a few things to find what works for me and what I love most.
I love overnight oats because it’s filling, easy to make, more tasty (the fruits add a nice taste to it), and it’s full of protein and fibre.
Today I will be teaching you how I make this yummy and healthy overnight breakfast oats, so buckle up maybe your life will change too.
What you will need
- Oats (any kind really, you can use the boxed/ instant one if you like them).
- Milk (could be liquid or powered, animal or plant).
- Sweetener (Honey, dates or sugar)
- Fruits (I recommend banana, apples, grapes and mangoes).
- A bowl with cover / Mason jar
- Add ons – protein powder, maca powder, chocolate powder, seeds. (optional).

- Pour your oats into the bowl/jar, add in your milk (if it’s the liquid kind then it should be the last thing you put in) add your sweetener, if you are using protein powder/chocolate powder/ maca powder this will be the time to put it in.
- Wash and cut your fruits and add them in, add your liquid milk and water/coconut water . You can use greek yoghurt instead if you like them.
- Mix everything together and pop into the fridge/ freezer keep overnight or for at least 5 hours so that your oat soaks properly.
When you are ready to eat, you can add in more milk and top with your favorite fruits.
Note: You can store for up to 3 days in the fridge and it will still be good and fresh. I usually mix a batch and keep for about 3 days.
