Making the oats

  1. Combine base ingredients in a suitably sized glass or bowl.
  2. Mix well, cover, and refrigerate overnight, or for at least 2 hours.
  3. Serve with your favorite toppings and enjoy!

Apple Cinnamon option:

  1. Make the oats as above.
  2. Core and peel an apple, cut into cubes.
  3. In a saucepan, dust apples with cinnamon powder, add 1 tablespoon water, mix then cook on medium heat until softened.
  4. Roughly chop a handful of pecans.
  5. Top your overnight oats with warm apple cinnamon mixture and pecans.

Banana Nutella option:

  1. Make the oats as above, but add 1/2 mashed banana and 1 tablespoon cacao powder to base ingredients. If you would like it a little sweeter, simply add some more sweetener.
  2. To serve, top with other 1/2 banana, hazelnut butter and chopped hazelnuts.
  • For a vegan option: omit the greek yogurt and instead use 2/3 cup total of non-dairy milk.
  • For a thinner consistency, add a little extra milk. You can use any milk of choice.
  • You can use any sweetener of choice instead of honey.
  • You can use any nut butter of choice as a topping.
  • Ensure you use old fashioned rolled oats for this recipe, as other types of oats will not work well.
  • Pro-tip: the base oats mix can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days, so is perfect for meal prepping. Toppings should be added fresh as they won't necessarily keep well.
