Overnight Oats 4 different ways

I love oatmeal in just about every shape and form. The first time I tried overnight oats was on a girls trip. My friend volunteered to bring these for us for breakfast! I was so excited for a hot steaming jar of “overnight oats”…but when she handed me a chilled jar of oatmeal I was shocked!

My shock quickly turned into happiness as I devoured the entire jar that morning. Smooth creamy oats, sweetened with honey, vanilla almond milk and banana. Chia seeds + our favorite toppings make these overnight oats over the top!

BASE RECIPE

The base recipe for these overnight oats I keep pretty close to the same for all these recipes. And you can absolutely make these overnight oats and eat them as is! You do not have to add extras, however we love to add a little something’ somthin’ to them. Often I’ll sneak in a little probiotics, or protein powder to give my system a boost.

I like to start with oats, almond milk and greek yogurt. From there I’ll add a little honey or ripe banana and a tablespoon of chia seeds! See how easy it is?

Now to take it stop further you’ve gotta try these 4 variations of overnight oats.

Peach Cobbler

Peach Cobbler overnight oats is everyones favorite! It’s the first one gone each time I make them. I mean really though, who doesn’t love peach cobbler. Our peach cobbler smoothie recipe is one of our most popular recipes. If you are a peach cobbler fan try it!

Berry Blast

Who doesn’t love berries? and the best part is you can find them ripe and juicy year round so you can make this recipe for overnight oats allll year round.

Chocolate Chunks

This is my protein recipe. I like to use my favorite chocolate protein powder to give it a rich chocolate flavor. Throw in some dark chocolate chips and its got a little crunch too.

Honey Vanilla

I love this recipe because its a sweet, but not overly sweet, perfectly balanced recipe.

Two glass jars of Overnight Oats with honey

One of my favorite reasons for making these, besides that they are quick to whip up, is that they are perfect for busy on-the-go people. You can grab them for breakfast in the car, lunch at work. Snack during a playdate, afternoon pick me up when you’re feeling hungry and craving something sweet! Try them out, you’ll be just as addicted as we are.
