Tasty Tuesday #7 | 1 Recipe, 5 Jars of Overnight Oats

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the entire day (and the only meal that I hate cooking. I just want to eat it; not cook it!). However, my morning time is super limited when I’m not working at home and since Shawn just started back to full time in-person learning, I’m back in the office 5 days a week.

I am already up at 4:30am and out the door by 6:15am. I can’t just get up earlier to make something for breakfast. Say Hello to Overnight Oats. They aren’t anything new but I have only been eating them for the last 3ish months. (Even though I have been pinning them on Pinterest for years!)

I love these little containers (they’re actually glass yogurt containers that I kept after eating the worlds best yogurt – Oui. It’s a French styled yogurt and so amazing.) Anyway, back to the containers. They’re the perfect single serving size and don’t take up a lot of space in the fridge.

If you’ve never heard of Overnight Oats, they are a blend of Greek yogurt, oats, seeds, and milk and then combined with whatever you want really. I add some fruit, cinnamon, lemon juice, ect. to give it flavor and substance. You combine it all and then refrigerate it overnight. The oats then soak up the liquid and become soft and smooth. It tastes great!

I have a base recipe that I go off of and add different toppings. This lets me have a different flavor every day of the week. It’s also portable so if I’m running late, I can just pop a jar into my lunch bag and eat it at my desk.

Here’s the basic recipe…


1/3 c. Greek Yogurt
1/2 c Rolled Oats
2/3 c. Milk
1 t. Chia Seeds
1 t. Flaxseed
1 t. Maple Syrup (omit if using flavored yogurt)


Combined all ingredients into a bowl and refrigerate overnight.

Now here’s what you need to add for each type of Overnight Oats…

Lemon Blueberry
1/2 t. Lemon Juice
Pinch of Lemon Zest (if I have some on hand)
Handful of blueberries

Peach Pie
1/8 t. Cinnamon
1 small peach; diced

Cinnamon Raisin
1/8 t. Cinnamon
Handful of Raisins

Raspberry Jam
1/2 t. Lemon Juice
Handful of Raspberries (mushed up and mixed with lemon juice)

(not pictured)
Strawberry Shortcake
1 t. Strawberry Jam
Handful of diced strawberries

It really is an easy and filling breakfast. I can eat a container while I’m making my lunch and Shawn’s lunch, and feeding my zoo of pets. Let me know if you have a recipe for them to try out! There are so many good ones out there.

    I totally agree! Oui is the best yogurt and I LOVE that they use glass instead of plastic. I wish more and more companies would adapt that. Those overnight oats sound absolutely delicious. I usually just do smoothies but those sound wonderful! I can’t wait to give them a try.

    I love overnight oats! I don’t eat them in the winter, but the rest of the year they are a staple in my diet. Fresh fruit of most any type is good with it.
    I love oui yogurt too and those containers are the cutest. I’ve saved them for candles too!
