Overnight Oats: Easy, Yummy & Healthy!


As high schoolers we all know how busy we constantly are. Whether that includes work, sports practices, band practices, or any other activity, most of us barely have free time. I’ve noticed that when I’m busy I typically don’t remember to eat, and I don’t have time to make food. Here are three easy recipes for overnight oats that you can make the night before as a quick, easy to grab breakfast. These are the best if you make it the night before! It typically takes me about 5-10 minutes to prepare.


Vanilla Latte Oats:

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup oats (any kind you prefer)

  • 1 cup milk (almond, oat, regular, or any other kind)

  • 6 oz brewed coffee

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1-2 tbsp brown sugar based on desired sweetness

  • Optional: 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, 1 tbsp chia seeds

  • You also need a container (I typically use a mason jar)

Directions:

  1. Start by pouring the ½ cup of oats into the mason jar or container.

  2. Next add in the 1-2 tbsp of brown sugar (based on how sweet you want your oats to be) and add in protein powder and chia seeds if desired.

  3. Mix all dry ingredients together.

  4. Add in the coffee, vanilla extract, and milk.

    1. Note: you may need less milk because of the coffee, so for this you can eyeball your desired amount.

  5. Mix together.

  6. Finally, store in your fridge overnight and enjoy the next day!



Cinnamon Oats

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup oats (any kind you want)

  • 1 cup milk (almond, oat, regular, etc.)

  • 1-2 tbsp brown sugar (based on your preferred sweetness)

  • 1-2 tbsp cinnamon (depending on how strong you want the cinnamon taste)

  • Optional (but strongly encouraged): Fresh fruit to put on top before eating! I recommend strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and pomegranate seeds!

  • Optional: 1 scoop protein powder, 1 tbsp chia seeds

Directions:

  1. Start by pouring the ½ cup of oats into the mason jar or container.

  2. Next add in the 1-2 tbsp of brown sugar, 1-2 tbsp cinnamon, and add in protein powder and chia seeds if desired.

  3. Mix together the dry ingredients.

  4. Add in the milk and stir together.

  5. Place it in your fridge and enjoy it in the morning!

  6. If you want to add fruit on top, which I highly recommend with this specific recipe, I would add it in the morning right before you eat it.


Chocolate Peanut Butter Oats

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup oats (any kind you want)

  • 1 cup milk (almond, oat, regular, etc.)

  • 1-2 tbsp brown sugar (based on your preferred sweetness)

  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder

  • Mini chocolate chips (however many you want)

  • 1 tbsp peanut butter (if you have allergies you can always sub this for almond butter or cashew butter or anything other kind, or just leave it out!)

  • Optional: 1 tbsp chia seeds

Directions:

  1. Start by pouring the ½ cup of oats into the mason jar or container.

  2. Next add in the 1-2 tbsp of brown sugar, 1 tbsp cocoa powder, mini chocolate chips, and add in chia seeds if desired.

  3. Mix together the dry ingredients.

  4. Add in the milk and stir together.

  5. Next, put it in your fridge overnight.

  6. The next morning add the 1 tbsp peanut butter on top and mix in. I also like to add slices of banana on top of this one, but that is of course optional. Enjoy!
