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).
  • Water

  • 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.

  1. I love oats and I’m definately this recipe a try, usually I love mine with apples and other fruits, I love banana as well but how do you manage to keep your banana fresh especially with the overnight recipe?

    1. Thanks for reading, apples are really great, I like that it makes it crunchy. For my banana I remove the skin and freeze it in a ziploc bag, and I always buy the local small ones. I find that they last longer kind of, if it’s frozen when you put it into the oats and freeze overnight it’s stay fresh for a few days. So key is keep everything frozen, let me know how this works for you.

    1. Hi Rose thank you for reading, since you prefer your Oatmeal hot you can prepare using the recipe soak overnight and then in the morning you heat for 5 mins in the microwave.
