Overnight oats - base recipes

Overnight oats are such a great way of getting a really nutritious breakfast when you're in a rush / on the go / post-workout and don't have a lot of time to make it as the bulk is done the night before.


The base I use for most overnight oat recipes is:

  • 40g oats

  • 125ml milk of your choice

  • 75g greek yoghurt

  • And usually 1tbs chia seeds (helps thicken as well as nutritious)

This combo gives you quality carbohydrate for energy, protein and healthy fats / omega 3.

Mix well in a bowl or wide-necked jar and cover / seal to leave in the fridge overnight.


You can add whatever you like to this base and / or top with things in the morning and I will share a few that I like with you. Here is one for starters:


Add to the overnight mix:

  • handful of blueberries

  • 1-2 tsp of honey or maple syrup to taste / sweeten

  • 1 pinch of cinnamon

And then top in the morning when ready to eat with a few walnuts.
