Overnight Oats are easy to make and very versatile. Making them is as easy as adding the ingredients to a container with a lid and refrigerating them overnight (or a few hours.) Literally, it takes less than 5 minutes. Since oats are mild in flavor, you can top with unlimited combinations of fruits, nuts, seeds, flavors, and different kinds of milk.

The oats will be soft and ready to eat after about 3 hours in the refrigerator. You can prepare several servings, keep them refrigerated, and you’ll have breakfast ready all week.

As well, If you forgot to make the oats the night before you can pop them in the microwave for 1 and 1/2 to 2 minutes and they’ll be ready to eat.

Overnight oats are good either hot or cold so serve them your favorite way.

PEANUT BUTTER BANANA OVERNIGHT OATS

There are three types of oats steel cuts oats, rolled oats, and instant oats. For overnight oats, you want to use rolled oats. Sometimes, they’re referred to as Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats. You can read more in-depth about the different kinds of oats here.

Liquids that you add soften (or ‘cooks’) the oats overnight. Typically, it’s milk and yogurt. I use unsweetened almond milk and nonfat Greek yogurt.

Next, flavor it however you prefer. For this recipe, I added peanut butter, banana, and a sprinkle of toffee bits. Honestly, the sky’s the limit when it comes to flavor them!

  1. Hi Paula! Does it make a huge difference if the yogurt is regular instead of Greek? Or should I cut back on the amount of almond milk, since regular yogurt isn’t nearly as thick as Greek? Thank you in advance for your response! Btw, your recipes are fantastic-especially your pound cakes!!

    1. You can use regular yogurt. I would cut back 1 or 2 tablespoons on the milk. I like the oats on the thicker side.
