Overnight Oats

Yesterday I mentioned that this week I was going to try and make Overnight Oats- these seem to be all the rage these days and now I know why.. they are delicious! Super quick and easy to make- they have made an excellent alternative for an on-the-go breakfast. I'm really bad about eating breakfast most days, usually the first thing that hits my stomach is the coffee I grab when I step off the subway. This has been a perfect, fulfilling meal I can grab right when I walk out the door. I've made two different recipes so far- both highly recommended.

Blueberry-Maple Overnight Oats
 Ingredients:
1/4 C Old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant, quick or steel-cut)
1/3 C skim milk (almond or soy is fine too!)
1/4 C low or non-fat greek yogurt
1-1.5 tsp chia seeds
2 tsp maple syrup
1/4 C blueberries or however much you want to fill your container
 Put all the ingredients in your container of choice (many people use 1/2 pint mason jars), stir, cover and put into the fridge. Wake up and enjoy!

Easy - and it will keep for up to two days!

Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats



 Ingredients:
1/4 C Old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant, quick or steel-cut)
1/3 C skim milk (almond or soy is fine too!)
1/4 C low or non-fat greek yogurt
1-1.5 tsp chia seeds
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 tsp honey
1/4 unsweetened applesauce (feel free to add more if there is room in your container)



Add ingredients together in your container of choice -stir, cover, and put into the fridge. Leave overnight and then enjoy!

Will keep in fridge for up to two days.


I'm so happy I've finally tried this dish- and glad I have an easy breakfast choice now! And thank you to Kate and Emily for this great link-up, check out some of the other great recipes this week.!

  2. I love the variety they offer. I haven't made them myself yet, but I do love them. (My sister used to make them all the time and I would eat theirs). I like the idea of using a mason jar for them...how smart are you?
