Use this base overnight oats recipe to make any of the 4 fun variations above! Alternatively, experiment with your favorite nuts, seeds, jam, fresh or dried fruits, and nut butters as toppings.


  • 1/2 cup whole rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup almond milk or light coconut milk, more as needed
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple syrup
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Desired toppings from above


  • In a small jar, combine the oats, almond or coconut milk, maple syrup, and salt. Stir and chill overnight.
  • In the morning, scoop the oats into a bowl, stir in more almond or coconut milk, if desired, for consistency. Top with desired toppings.
  • Alternatively, for a grab-and-go breakfast, you can assemble the overnight oats in jars with the toppings the night before.


Make these vegan by using maple syrup in place of the honey.
