I’m pretty sure everyone needs an overnight oats recipe in their life.
By pretty sure, I mean 100% positive.
I use to be anti overnight oats because the idea of cold oats grossed me out but guess what folks?? You can heat them up!
Truth be told, I’ve converted over to the dark side… I really enjoy cold oats now. Especially with the warmer months knocking at our door. A chilled bowl of oats with fresh fruit and nut butter absolutely hits the spot and keeps me full for hours!
To make this recipe, I just did the basics but you can jazz it up however you’d like!
I always add Nuzest protein to my overnight oats to give them a nice protein boost and the creamiest of textures! (code “ahealthyharmony” will save you at checkout!) I’ve added fresh and frozen berries, nut and seeds, nut butter or seed butter… I’ve even added riced cauliflower, shredded zucchini and/or carrots (carrot cake oats, yes please!).
Overnight oats can be made fancy or just basic… it’s all about creating them to fit your needs!
Need some meal prep help? These overnight oats can be made just for that! I keep mine in an airtight container for up to 3 days and enjoy them whenever I please.
