Simple Overnight Oats


1/4 cup oats (I use old fashioned)
1/4 cup nonfat, plain greek yogurt
1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla or plain almond milk (can sub any milk of your choice, this is just what I use)
*Optional – Pinch of Stevia (or a few drops, if you have that on-hand)
*Optional – Dash of cinnamon (or pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, etc)
*I have found that it doesn’t matter what type of yogurt or milk you use as long as you stick to the same ratios.*


Place oats, Greek yogurt, milk and stevia (optional) in a mug, mixing well. After milk and yogurt is incorporated well into the dry oats, top with cinnamon or spice of your choice (optional). Cover overnight in fridge – hence the “overnight” portion of the overnight oats.
Enjoy the next day and top with your favorite add-ins.


This recipe is delicious and functional because you can add in toppings of your choice – fruit (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, bananas, apples), nuts (almond slivers, walnuts, pecans), carob chips, dried fruit (cranberries, golden raisins) or whatever variation you come up with.
