Easy Overnight Oats ( Special Guest Feature)

Overnight Oats

“Overnight oats are my absolute favourite” – Emilia Hogan RD 

Reason’s Why I Love Overnight Oats (OO):

  1. I make them the night before and in the morning I can just grab and go. No prep time, no clean up = Happy Em.
  2. I’m using a mason jar so I feel like I am part of the “I eat everything in mason jar” club.
  3. They are high in fiber, and micronutrients. Seriously- fast food made healthy!
  4. They just taste amazing. Period.

The Base Recipe.

Overnight oats are one of the most customizable breakfasts. Unlike toast and butter (boring, yawn) OO’s have millions and millions of possible combinations. All you need is to start with the base recipe and add your own toppings/mix-ins.

  • 1/2 Cup Quick Cook Oats or Steel-Cut
  • 1/4 Cup Almond Milk
  • 1/4 Cup Greek Yogurt
  • 1 tbsp Chia Seeds (to thicken/fluff it up)
  • Pinch of Sea Salt
  • Splenda/stevia to taste


Mix all ingredients in a mason jar (or container) and leave in the fridge overnight (or at least 6 hours) to thicken.
