Notes

  • This recipe can be one large portion or two smaller portions. Make double or triple the recipe to make enough for a few days.
  • The oat mixture should be quite thick, there shouldn't be too much excess liquid (see video).
  • If you're skipping the protein powder, add 1/4 cup extra oats or 2 tbsp chia seeds. The mixture may be a bit runnier than if using protein powder, but it will thicken within a few hours.
  • Use a vegan protein powder and plant-based milk to make them vegan.
  • Add a tablespoon of thick yoghurt to make the oats even creamier!
  • If you're using quick oats, reduce the amount of liquid you're using.
  • Store in mason jars or lunchboxes and take them on the go.
  • If making these overnight oats in a bowl, cover with some plastic wrap or cover the bowl with a plate.
  • You can heat the oats in the microwave if you prefer warm oats. I would recommend soaking the oats without the toppings and then adding them once you've heated your oats.
