Overnight oats have gained somewhat of a following in the past year. They are an easy and healthy way to enjoy oats without the commitment of cooking up fresh porridge on the stove every morning. They provide a balanced breakfast full of fibre and healthy fats to set you up for the day ahead. With just a little prep the night before you’ll wake up to a deliciously creamy breakfast treat…what’s not to love?!
I’m sure you’ll have seen various recipes for this popular breakfast as everyone seems to like theirs just a little different. This is my basic recipe for my favourite simple overnight chia oats which I like to change up with the addition of fruits, spices and nut butters.
Pum’s Oh So Yummy Overnight Oats
- 3 tbsp. oats
- 2 tbsp. chia seeds
- 1 splash vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp. peanut butter
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 2 tbsp. greek yoghurt
- Selection of fruit for topping (I used a few raspberries, blueberries and strawberries)
- On the night before, combined the oats and chia seeds with the coconut milk and mixed well.
- Added the greek yoghurt, peanut butter and vanilla extract and stirred well to combine fully. Chilled in a covered bowl overnight.
- In the morning layer in a glass with berries.
The greek yoghurt and peanut butter in this make it so creamy and moreish and provide a little protein kick.
I’ve just recently got back into eating this for breakfast and am excited for trying different toppings and combinations…look out for the recipes!
