Overnight Oats (aka the reason I can’t sleep)

Overnight Oats
Adapted from Kath Eats

Some night I can’t even sleep because all I want to do is get up and eat this breakfast. I LOVE these overnight oats. Kath at Kath Eats Real Food is a genius.

Overnight Oats

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.)

Try to go sleep. Good luck, you know you're excited.

In the morning, remove from fridge and top overnight oats with delicious toppings.  (Yes, there are toppings.  It's like an ice cream sundae.)
