Overnight Oats Recipe for a Quick Breakfast

When it starts to get hot out I love having a cool breakfast to start the day!

Overnight oats are easy to prepare for a quick breakfast and super portable for work, school or the beach! I am going to share a basic recipe as well as a few ways to personalize it for taste and nutrition goals.

Basic Overnight Oats Recipe for 1


1/2 cup old fashioned oats (can be gluten free or regular)

3/4 cup milk ( I prefer a plant based milk such as unsweetened vanilla almond milk here but any milk will work)

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tbsp date syrup or maple syrup (optional)

1 tbsp whole chia seeds

Optional add-in:

  • 1 scoop protein powder


Combine all ingredients together in a mason jar or small to go container and shake to combine. Put in fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight until set! Stir and enjoy!

Optional toppings:

  • Cut up fruit-berries, peaches, cooked apples, banana, kiwi etc

  • Nut Butter

  • Shredded Coconut

  • Chocolate Chips

  • Nuts

  • Pumpkin Seeds

  • Hemp Seeds

  • Craisins

Get creative and have fun with toppings!

I typically prep enough for 3 days at a time so that I can just grab and go or grab and eat!

I also prep my toppings-wash fruit, make a container of seeds etc at the same time.

Pro Tip:

If you need containers to mix your overnight oats in I highly suggest purchasing a few Talenti Gelato flavors..enjoying them and then repurposing the containers for your overnight oats and toppings. They are legit the perfect size..and the ice cream is AMAZING! I highly recommend the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup YUM!!!!
