Overnight Oats are very simple to make and you can make a weeks worth at one time, for a quick grab and eat, or a grab, heat & eat!  In other words, you can eat them cold or warm them up in the microwave.  Below is how I make my overnight oats but you can certainly use other fruits, nuts or nut butters in them!

You will need:

  • 1 Mason Jar (or 1 jar for how many servings you wish to make)
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup dried oatmeal, either rolled oats, steel cut oats will work.
  • Fruit of your choice: I typically add half a banana, 5-6 strawberries and a handful of blueberries
  • 1 Tablespoon or Nuts or Nut Butter: I typically add walnuts or peanut butter
  • (optional) 1 Teaspoon Chia Seeds or Ground Flax Seeds
  • Your Favorite Unsweetened Plant Milk, simply fill the jar to cover all the ingredients (I honestly don’t measure).  I use unsweetened almond milk

I put oatmeal, fruit, nut/nut butter, and seeds (if using them) in the jar, fill with the plant milk, put on the lid and shake, then place in the fridge overnight.  In the morning, I will either eat it cold, or heat it in the microwave for 2 minutes and eat directly out of the jar!  I hope you enjoy!
