Overnight Oats - 5 Easy & Healthy Recipes

Updated: May 6

This super easy overnight oats recipe is a healthy, and simple breakfast that you can make ahead of time for busy mornings. Overnight oats are made by soaking oats in liquid for a couple of hours (or overnight). They are much easier to prepare (no cooking needed!) and perfect for when you need a ready-to-go breakfast or snack.


Serves 2

½ cup rolled oats

½ cup milk (I like to use almond, coconut or even oat milk)

¼ cup Greek style coconut yoghurt (regular Greek yoghurt works too)

1 tablespoon chia seeds

½ teaspoon cinammon

1 scoop vegan protein - optional (I like to use Amino Animo Sunflower Protein)


I mix all the dry ingredients together first - I like to use mason jars as it makes it easy to give everything a good old fashioned shake to mix it together.

Once the dry ingredients are well mixed pour your milk on top. Make sure everything is very well mixed, place the lid on your jar and pop it in the fridge. When you’re ready to serve, add a drizzle of maple syrup or honey, some fresh fruit and enjoy!


There are endless ways to change up overnight oats. Some people also like to add 50-75 grams of Greek yoghurt per portion. This is delicious but I find it doesn't keep as long.

Here are a few ideas for other flavours:

  • Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats: ½ banana, mashed 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts 1-2 tablespoons of peanut butter ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Cinnamon Apple: ½ apple, diced 2 tablespoons pecans Pinch of nutmeg

  • Chocolate Overnight Oats: 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder 1 tablespoon chocolate chips 1 tablespoon almond butter 1 teaspoon cacao nibs

  • Blueberry Pistachio: Prepare a blueberry compote by placing 250g frozen blueberries, 2 1tbs water, 1 tbs maple syrup and 1tbs lemon juice in a pan, bring to a simmer, uncovered and cook for about 10-12 minutes or until it has thickened. You can either mix this into your overnight oats, or enjoy it on top.

  • Raspberry & Coconut: 2 tablespoons fresh or frozen raspberries 1 tablespoon dessicated coconut 1 teaspoon lime zest 1 tablespoon unsalted unshelled pistachios
