How to Make Overnight Oats

You can really let your creativity flow with overnight oats.

Here is a simple recipe using simple rolled oats. Adding chia seeds is optional but creates a more pudding-like texture and adds more fibre and good fats.

Start with the classic recipe below, add flavour variations, and add toppings as you like. That’s it! So easy.

Ingredients:

  • Rolled oats – healthy and full of fibre
  • Warming spices like cinnamon, cardamom, clove, nutmeg, turmeric – As overnight oats are consumed raw, adding warming spices helps support Agni (digestion)
  • Maple syrup or honey – to naturally sweeten
  • Milk of choice: Almond, Oat, Rice, Coconut – for a deliciously creamy texture
  • Chia seed – added minerals, omega 3’s and provides a creamy texture
  • Topping options: berries, nuts and seeds, hemp seeds

How to make in 4 easy steps

  1. Throw everything into a jar/bowl the night before. The quantities are up to you but a rough guide is 1 cup of oats, 1 tablespoon of Chia seeds, a dash of maple syrup, ¼ tsp of each spice and enough milk to cover the oats.
  2. Mix it all together and refrigerate overnight.
  3. In the morning, add toppings
  4. Take it with you and enjoy!
