Overnight Oats Recipe

Overnight oats are the best healthy make-ahead breakfast! Here are 4 easy, delicious recipe variations to keep you from getting stuck in a breakfast rut.

overnight oats recipe

Overnight oats are the perfect breakfast if you love eating oatmeal in the morning but don’t have time to cook before you head out the door. My base recipe consists of whole rolled oats soaked in almond milk overnight with a dash of maple syrup. In the morning, the oats are soft and easy to digest, and the mixture has a thick, porridge-like consistency that’s satisfying to eat.

I absolutely love overnight oats – they’re an easy, grab-able, dairy-free, healthy breakfast – but I have a tendency to get stuck in an oat rut, reaching for the same ‘ol toppings every time. If you feel the same way, here are 4 overnight oats recipe variations that will hopefully spice up your breakfast routine!

How to Make Overnight Oats

If you’re new to overnight oats, making them is easy! Here’s how:

  • On the night before you plan to enjoy your oats, mix together 1/2 cup whole rolled oats and 1/2 cup milk. I typically use coconut or almond milk, but oat milk, soy milk, or cow’s milk would also work here. Then, add 1/2 teaspoon maple syrup and a dash of salt. Stir to combine!
  • Refrigerate the mixture overnight in an airtight container.
  • In the morning, they’ll be ready to eat! Transfer them to a bowl before topping and devouring them, or top and take them on the go.

These are the toppings I started with to create these 4 overnight oats combinations – how pretty are all of these healthy ingredients?!

Seeds and fruit in bowls

Best Overnight Oats Recipe Tips

  • Know your oats. Different types of oats will yield different final consistencies. Steel-cut oats will be chewier, while quick oats will be softer. I prefer a texture in between the two, so I use old-fashioned rolled oats in my recipe.
  • Leave your oats plain while they refrigerate overnight, and add toppings in the morning! That way, dried fruit will stay chewy, and any nuts and seeds will be crunchy, not gummy.
  • Or use a Mason jar to take them on the go. If you’re someone who likes to grab your breakfast and head out the door on busy mornings, try making your overnight oats in a Mason jar. The lid seals tightly, the jar isn’t too big or bulky, and its narrow shape keeps most of the toppings separate from the oats until you’re ready to eat, so you’ll have better results if you top them ahead of time.
  • Prep a big batch ahead for the whole week! Scale this recipe up to get ahead on breakfast all week long! Store individual servings in Mason jars and use different toppings each day.

Overnight Oats Recipe Variations

In the recipe below, you’ll find my go-to overnight oatmeal base. Use it as a starting point to make one (or more!) of these fun variations, or top it with your favorite nut butters, fresh or dried fruits, seeds, and more! You could also stir cocoa powder or spices into the milk and oat mixture. Feel free to get creative!

overnight oats with yogurt

Cherry Berry with Chia & Yogurt

A classic antioxidant-filled combo. Since it’s wintertime, I used frozen fruit (tart cherries and blueberries) in my bowls. Then, I topped them with Greek yogurt, chia seeds, and a drizzle of maple syrup.

Coconut Turmeric

An unexpected breakfast bowl filled with anti-inflammatory spices! Make the base recipe with coconut milk, and stir in a heaping 1/8 teaspoon ground turmeric and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. In the morning, dress it up with mango, dried currants, hemp seeds, and coconut flakes.

overnight oats in a bowl with tahini and pomegranates

Sweet Sesame Tahini

I love tahini so much that now I’m eating it for breakfast! This pretty bowl is topped with a big scoop of tahini, pomegranate arils, chopped dried apricots, sesame seeds, and crushed pistachios. To make it sweeter, add a drizzle of maple syrup or honey.

Overnight oats recipe

Chocolate Chip Cookie

If you’re trying to get your kids (or husband) to eat oats, this one is for you :). Add 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract to the base recipe the night before, and in the morning, top it with almond butter or peanut butter, chocolate chips, and chopped almonds for crunch.

    Thank you for posting this. We love overnight oats, because they are both easy and tasty. I always put a scoop of protein powder (I use Designer Whey naturally sweetened) in mine because we need to make sure we get enough protein. I will definitely be trying at least the coconut/turmeric variety (and hope that my husband likes it – it’s possibly a bit weird for him).

      Hi Susan, I hope you enjoy the toppings!

    Hello, I like to soak oats to make them more digestable and less likely to cause bloating. If the oats have been soaked are there changes to be made to your overnight oats recipes? Thank you!

    • Jeanine Donofrio
      01.04.2019

      Hi Mary Kay, the oats soak overnight (and last up to 3 days in the fridge), so the soaking part is already taken care of in this case. Does that make sense? I wouldn’t soak them before combining with the milk. Hope that helps!

    I love steel cut oats. I make a week’s batch in my pressure cooker. I love your variety of toppings and look forward to mixing it up a bit. Thanks for the great ideas!

    I love the idea of these recipes – they look amazing! What are alternatives to the oats, which can be inflammatory and are high carb? Can these be done solely with chia, or hemp seeds? I’d love some ideas on how to keep these great flavors and the overnight convenience, and strip out some carbs.

    Hello, I never made overnight oats, so I was just wondering, do you eat it hot or cold? Thank you!

    • Jeanine Donofrio
      02.27.2020

      Hi Chiara, usually cold, but if you wanted to heat them up until just warmed, (they don’t need to be cooked cooked after sitting overnight), you can. Hope that helps!

  12. Cassidy
    07.09.2020

    These all sound delicious!! I’m fairly new to using frozen fruits in things other than smoothies. How do you defrost yours without ending up with a huge puddle of juice? Also, when do you take them out of the freezer if you are going to put them on your oats? Sorry if this is basic knowledge. I’m very excited to try these!!!

    • Jeanine Donofrio
      07.10.2020

      Hi Cassidy, I let them thaw at room temp for 15-20 minutes (if I’m in a hurry, I pop them in the microwave for 10 seconds or so)… I strain the excess juices. Hope that helps! You can also use fresh fruit! I mix it up, depending on what season it is.

    I love making overnight oats! I got into a routine of prepping them on Sundays in mini mason jars and then adding topping the morning of so they don’t get soggy. I love to add cacao nibs for a little crunch. I’m also a fan of adding nut butters to make them extra creamy. It’s a decadent, easy breakfast on a workday morning.

    I’ve tried overnight oats a few times and never been a fan. It’s been a while so I decided to try your recipe. I made it Friday afternoon so I’d have a yummy breakfast for my Saturday morning work shift. I FORGOT ABOUT THEM UNTIL THIS MORNING! (I know, hot mess momma here) guess what…. I really really enjoyed them. I used coconut milk from the carton and cinnamon to start and then today I microwaved them for a minute and added half a sliced banana, drizzle of honey, sliced almonds, and a sprinkle of hemp seeds and just a tiny bit of mini semisweet chocolate chips. Maybe it was because I let them sit so long but thank you for changing my mind on overnight oats.

    I love overnight oats! So easy to make and then zero effort when you need a quick breakfast or snack. I usually use oat milk since that’s what I prefer to drink. I like to add chia and flax to the oats for the overnight soak. I always top with chocolate, PB or almond butter and whatever nuts or seeds I have on hand (usually walnuts and almonds). I definitely need to branch out though and your other varieties sound so good, thanks for the ideas!

It’s rich & creamy but not as heavy as almond or peanut butter. Threw in some chia, cacao nibs, maple syrup, cinnamon and vanilla for the soak. Take the extra five minutes in the AM and crisp up the bananas in a bit of coconut oil to throw on top… game changer! Thanks for the challenge!!

    I’ve been playing with this recipe for the last few weeks and loving it. I actually wake up craving it and it’s great cuz it’s basically made for me already (though a bit annoying when I forget to soak the oats til right before bed).

    I’ve come up with a combination of rolled oats, oat milk, and 1/2TBSP of chia seeds which I soak overnight. I also take 1/4 cup of frozen blueberries and 1/4 cups of frozen Cherries and put them in the fridge for the next morning.

    I’ve made a few different berry syrups to layer in the middle, the first being blueberry, cherry, and honey, the second was blueberry, strawberry, and honey. Super simple! Blend two cups of whatever berry mixture you want, mix in 1/4 cup of water and 2 TBSP of lemon juice, set them on a low boil for 5-10 minutes depending on desired thickness, and then when it cools to warm-room temperature you add 1/4 cup of honey. It stores for around two weeks!

    So in the morning I layer the oats with 1/4 cup of Cabot French Vanilla Greek Yogurt (sweet and not as sour as Greek yogurts often are, representing Vermont too ☺️), 1.5 TBSP of the berry syrup, and the berries I left to unthaw overnight. Sometimes I add a dollop of whipped cream for fun.

    I love it! I’m gonna be playing with overnight oats recipes for a long time to come! Very healthy and tasty at the same time and very few dishes to clean.

    Such an easy and healthy breakfast! Fun for kids to make and perfect for travel or camping. We made in a small mason jar and then topped with nutella, raspberries and chia seeds in the morning.

    Love the simplicity of this recipe! It was delicious, nutritious, satisfying and oh so easy. I also love how customizable it is. The base recipe works great with whatever you have on hand that day. Thanks for sharing another great recipe!

    Overnight oats are such a great food prepping trick! There are endless, delicious topping combinations and it’s super easy to boost the nutritional content with flax or chia seeds. This was the first time I had ever prepped them in a mason jar – how fun!

    So easy! I’m hoping to try all the variations here, but used it as a base for some Meyer lemon curd I had made. Yum!

    Yummy. I made the base recipe…and in place of maple syrup added some healthy Maine Blueberry jam…and a drizzle of peanut butter for the protein! Scrumptious!

    Overnight oats are the best. So easy and no clean up. I especially love them for a quick easy breakfast. I topped them off with peanut butter and chocolate chips. My 8 year old loved it.

    So quick and delicious! Great for a grab and go breakfast; very filling! I made my oats with a riff on carrot cake ; carrots, walnuts, cinnamon and fresh nutmeg; tasty!

    This is such a fun idea… It is perfect for my four kids and people going in all directions, summit them at home, some take them to work, and some take them to school on the bus with a spoon :-)! Thank you

    Love this simple recipe and fun ideas for toppings! I was able to prep for the whole week while also mixing it up enough to not get bored.

    This was so simple to make! I usually eat really sweet things for breakfast (think brownies, cookies, cake…), so this is great healthier choice :).

    This was delicious and so easy! I made the version with berries, chia seeds and yogurt (and added some almond butter and cacao nibs). Great weekday breakfast. Can’t wait to try the coconut turmeric version soon!
