Overnight Oats

Serves 2, easy to double

Meal prep for breakfast! Store this easy recipe in your favorite commute-friendly jars for a great grab-and-go morning meal. Chia seeds absorb liquid and contribute to the texture, so we recommend you add them.


  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (quick oats are not recommended)
  • 1 cup milk (any variety)
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey, plus more to taste
  • Pinch of salt
  • OPTIONAL (toppings and mix-ins):
  • Fresh whole or sliced berries, diced peaches or nectarines, sliced banana
  • Toasted nuts, coconut, hemp, flax or other seeds
  • Your favorite nut butter, tahini, jam


  1. Stir together oats, milk, yogurt, chia seeds, sweetener, and salt. Transfer to two individual serving containers. Cover and chill for several hours or, for best texture, overnight.
  2. Stir in mix-ins and add toppings. Enjoy right away or re-cover to pack and go!
  3. Overnight Oat Combos:
