I just had overnight oats for breakfast and I think you should know that it’s t-oats amazing. And so easy! I love how all the prep happens the night before and then you wake up to a delicious healthy breakfast. The only problem is you might lose sleep over it. So brace yourself and prepare to make 2-3 servings with:
2/3 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup milk
2/3 cup plain yogurt
1 T chia seed (optional)
1 T honey (optional)
A pinch of salt
This post doesn’t even need a methods section because all you have to do is put everything in a medium bowl and stir to mix well. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and keep in the fridge overnight and you’ll find something like this in the morning:
This is a bit on the thick side. If you’d like it to be looser, you can adjust the amount of milk. I used soy milk but you can use whatever kind of milk you want. I also don’t see why you can’t use flavored yogurt but keep in mind that flavored ones are a lot sweeter than plain. If you don’t like yogurt (BUT WHY), skip and make up the amount with milk.
Mine is dotted with berries and seeds because I swapped out half the amount of rolled oats with a muesli I had at home.
The dried berries plump up overnight and add lots of flavor to the oats while the seeds give it texture. I highly recommend that you add in things like this to your oats mix but if not, that’s okay too because you can add them before you devour a bowl.
I had a pretty leisurely morning so I tried composing a nice plate.
You can totally do away with the attempt at fanciness and just make them in jars with everything in it to begin with. The Interwebs is full of ridiculously beautiful pictures but just to give you an idea:
What a gorgeous, fun, easy, and delicious power breakfast. Truly ticks all the boxes!
