The Best Overnight Oats
Overnight oats make for a great make ahead breakfast!
Yield: serves 1
Total Time: 5 minutes + overnight chill time
heaping 1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
1/3 cup vanilla greek yogurt (any type of yogurt works, use greek if you want the additional protein)
2/3 cup milk (skim, whole, soy, almond, rice...take your pick)
1/2 banana, thinly sliced
1 splash vanilla extract
optional: 1 tablespoon chia seeds (makes oatmeal even thicker)
topping ideas: granola, cereal, fruit, nut butters
Combine all ingredients, stir, cover, and place in refrigerator overnight. (I like using a mason jar; also zero cooking is required with this breakfast.)
In the morning, remove from fridge and top overnight oats with delicious toppings.
