  • ½ cup Liquid of choice dairy milk, almond, cashew or coconut milk
  • ½ cup Old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp Chia seeds
  • ¼ cup Yogurt optional


  • Add the desired amounts of milk, oats, yogurt, chia seeds and banana to a mason jar and give them a good stir.
  • Refrigerate overnight or for at least 5 hours.
  • In the morning, add additional to achieve the desired consistency you'd like. top with fruit, nuts, nut butter, seeds, protein powder, granola, coconut, or spices.


  • Add chia seeds first I like to add the chia seeds first with just the oats and liquid, then let it sit for a few minutes before adding the other ingredients. This allows the oats and seeds to fully absorb the liquid and results in super thick, delicious oats!
  • Meal prep – Overnight oats lasts in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Simply store in an air-tight container and portion out a serving each morning to enjoy throughout the week.
*Nutrition facts use "almond milk" as liquid ingredient.
