Overnight oats are basically a cold version of oatmeal. Instead of cooking them on a cooker or microwave you let the oats sit in the refrigerate overnight and absorb all the liquids. Overnight oats are a quick healthy breakfast that is great for those busy mornings. If you are looking for a simple, filling, wholesome and delicious recipe to add to your life, I highly recommend this one.
1/2 cup (heaping) oats
1/3 – 1/2 cup unsweetened milk of choice (depending on how thick you prefer it)
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1/2 cup of Greek yoghurt
pinch of salt
2 teaspoons of maple syrup (optional)
Handful of sliced mangoes, blueberries, strawberries and raspberries
Additional flavored greek yoghurt
- Mix all ingredients in a bowl, then transfer the mixture in a mason jar or any jar with a cap.
- Cover jar tightly and refrigerate for 4 hours, but preferably overnight before eating.
- The following day garnish with desired toppings or enjoy as is.
*I recommend keeping a 1:1 ratio for the oats. The recipe above for the oats is a base, and the toppings are endless. You can use anything and substitute the ingredients to fit your preference.
