overnight oats in a jar

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

But yet so many of us just press the snooze button waaaaayy too often and then hurry to work without having breakfast. Hands up if you’ve ever done that…

If your hand just went up then these six overnight oats recipes plus an extensive tutorial is for you. But if just the slightest thought of organisation has you shaking, then sorry, you’re doomed.

Along with the recipe suggestions I’ve prepared flexible step-by-step instructions for you below.

Actually it’s so simple, even Kat and Dave’s cats would know how to make overnight oats after checking out the photos.

What are Overnight Oats?

So what exactly is this delicious breakfast dish we’re talking about? Essentially, overnight oats are a simple no-cook way of making oatmeal by soaking oats in milk for several hours (usually overnight).

This makes the oats soft, creamy and easier to digest. 

The texture is similar to traditional stove-top oatmeal, minus the hassle of having to prepare it in the morning (which equals more time for sleep, hooray!).

You can either eat them cold straight from the jar, or heat them up to achieve something similar to freshly cooked oatmeal.

Health Benefits of Oats

If you’ve not yet jumped on the overnight oat train, you may well be persuaded by the health benefits oats can provide! 

Oats are packed with fiber, the main soluble fiber being beta-glucan. This is the magic ingredient which leaves you feeling fuller for longer thanks to the fact that they slow down digestion, suppress appetite and increase satiety.

This makes overnight oats ideal if you’re trying to lose weight, as you won’t be tempted by that mid-morning snack after eating them!

Besides being super-filling, oats are a fantastic source of minerals and antioxidants including Phosphorus, Thiamine, Zinc, Iron and Magnesium.

There are numerous studies which have found that oats are associated with health benefits like reduced cholesterol, reduced risk of coronary heart disease and improved blood sugar control. 

That’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what oats can do for you! Check out Harvard’s guide to oats as a nutrition source and Medical News Today’s guide to the health benefits of oatmeal if you’re interested in learning more.

How to Make Overnight Oats Step by Step

The principle is simple: you add the oats the night before you want them, some kind of milk and your favourite toppings all in one glass and put them in the fridge.

The milk gets soaked up by the oats and the next morning you have a delicious ready to eat breakfast waiting for you.

Step 1: Take a glass or a bowl and add a serving of old fashioned rolled oats (basic porridge oats work a treat too). Fill the glass as much as you think you’ll be able to eat the next morning.

(Tip: if you prepare the overnight oats in a sealable glass/jar then you can take it with you to work in case you still run out of time in the morning. No excuses! Pro tip: add 1 tbsp of chia seeds for some omega-3s and even more protein).

Step 2: Now fill up the glass with liquid until the oats are well covered. Possible liquids: milk, soy milk, coconut milk, almond milk, rice milk, oat milk, orange juice. Whatever takes your fancy, really…

Step 3: It’s time to add your favourite toppings.

Some ideas include: almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, cashew nuts, flax seeds, chia seeds, raisins, all kinds of berries, fruits like banana, cherries, apples or pears, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, nut butters, coconut flakes, greek yogurt, plain yogurt, the list goes on.

If you like any of those suggestions with a little more crunch just add them in the morning.

Step 4: Refine the overnight cereal with your favorite spices; for example cinnamon, vanilla, cocoa powder, ginger powder, gingerbread spice (perfect in winter!), all work really well.

Step 5: Lid on top and off they hop to the fridge.

And that’s how you make overnight oats in a jar. Just get them out of the fridge the next morning, add a sweetener if that’s your thing (maple or agave syrup, honey, stevia) and enjoy!

Really the easiest thing in the world, isn’t it?

Overnight Oatmeal FAQ

1. How far in advance can I make them?

Depending on what ingredients you take the overnight oats stay fresh for 2-3 days.

This means that you can prepare 2 or even 3 servings at once and have breakfast ready in no time for several days in a row! Niceeee.

If you like to meal prep for the whole week at once you can always mix jars of dry ingredients like the oats, spices and nuts ready to have milk added the night before you plan to eat them.

2. How long do the oats have to soak before I can eat them?

Ideally let them sit for eight hours, but they should be fine after around four hours.

3. Can overnight oats be heated up?

Definitely. Simply throw them in the microwave for a minute or two and you’re good to go (please check that your glass container is suitable for microwaving first though).

4. What kind of glasses/jars are ideal?

Any jar, really. Just use some empty pickles jars to start off with. If you want to go the fancy pants way, get some beautiful mason jars (Amazon Link) to flash them off in the library or at work.

And if you’re looking for a really cool present, then you need to check out these overnight oats jars with a recipe printed on from my blogging friend Sophia!

5. Can I use steel-cut oats?

Yep! They may be a little more chewy than usual, but a great trick is to leave the jar outside of the fridge for a few hours first. Soaking in room temperature will speed up the softening process.

6. Can I use yoghurt instead of milk?

Sure! Just make sure you give it all a good stir or pop the lid on tightly and give the whole thing a solid shake.

7. Can I make overnight oats with water?

Err, yep. It won’t taste that exciting though!

8. Do I add milk when I make them, or in the morning?

That’s up to you, but we recommend the evening. The longer the ingredients have to soak, the softer they’ll be. If you use chia seeds, then definitely add milk the night before!

9. Can I add protein powder to my overnight oats in a jar?

Definitely! You’ll want to add a little more liquid though and give them a good shake/stir to avoid lumps.

10. Can I use frozen fruits?

Yes! They’re perfect, and will thaw overnight.

11. Do I need to put the jar in the fridge, or can I keep them out?

Definitely depends how warm it is! For one night that should be fine – much longer and they’ll go bad, we wouldn’t recommend!

12. What’s the difference between rolled oats and oatmeal? I’m confused!

Don’t panic, they’re the same thing, and are ideal for overnight oats 🙂

13. Are overnight oats vegan?

They certainly can be! Just make sure to use your favourite plant-based milk or yoghurt to make them vegan. Soy or oat milk makes them especially creamy!

This is a recipe for all ages! As a high school student I always find myself running to catch the bus before I could eat breakfast (and sometimes have embarrassing stomach growls right before lunch). I am so glad I found overnight oats so that I could make this before bed and eat on the way to school! Thanks so much, I loved the post. 😀

Healthy, nutritious and absurdly tasty food? That’s what I’m all about. I love recipes which are full of flavour but are good for you too. My job in family medicine led me to become a nutrition professional as well, with an aim to get people healthier just by the food they eat.


  1. I love overnight oats and make them all the time! Have you seen the jar I created and sell on my site that makes for quick and easy overnight oats? It’s been a huge hit!

  2. Thanks so much for including me in this round-up! I love overnight oats, probably my most favorite breakfast ever, so I can’t wait to try some (or all of these)!

    • Of course! 🙂
      hahaha, well I’m definitely also a muesli/oats/oatmeal fan. Since I stopped eating bacon, English breakfast isn’t as much fun anymore as it was before anyway.

  3. I was an overnight oats kick for a long long time several months ago. Need to get back that so breakfast is waiting for me in the morning. Some delicious sounding recipes here!

  4. Shashi at RunninSrilankan

    I don’t think I’ve ever skipped breakfast – lunch maybe – but never breakfast – I adore all breakfast foods so much! And one of those breakfast foods I adore are overnight oats! Love the tip to add in chia – I always forget to do that!

  5. Scrambled egg and sausage (the precooked, frozen kind).

  6. What an amazing idea for the oats lover; my mom will love it 🙂
    Thanks for sharing so many options 🙂

  7. Wow, Howie this tutorial is really awesome!! So helpful. I have never actually made mine like this because I always like to rinse the slime off of the oats in the morning after soaking all night, haha. But this is a great tutorial. Thank you so much for including my Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal recipe!

  8. I love your step by step instructions! Can you believe that I’ve only made overnight oats once? So sad! all those recipes are such great inspiration. Making some tonight to enjoy tomorrow 🙂

  9. Alright I have no good excuse. You make it look so easy, easier than chopping a cantaloupe, which is what I’ve been having for breakfast lately. I love step 5, makes me think of bunnies…and breakfast 🙂 I’d definitely throw in the chia seeds, love those little guys! And all the flavors, #11 is sounding especially amazing. Heck I could start it in the morning and have it for dessert! Great post Howie 🙂

  10. Great step by step instructions and photos. So simple and convenient. Thanks for the list of other recipes too.

  11. I love overnight oats and eat them at least 2 or 3 times a week. They are just perfect for grab and go breakfasts and keep you full for ages. I often take them to work with me for lunch too. Making them in mason jars makes them so easily transportable and perfect for eating at your desk. My favourite flavour combination is coffee and chocolate!

    • I like your style Mel! Good combo. Yep, it’s super convenient. The only downside is, I find me eating the jars that were supposed to be for the next day much earlier

  12. Never heard of overnight oats before. Tried them this morning, and they were great. I like mine hot, so just 45 seconds in the micro. And just in time for the cold weather. Much thanks.

  13. Great step by step tutorial. Overnight oats are one of my favorite breakfast choices. Thanks for all of the inspiration. 🙂

  14. I think I like warm oatmeal better than the overnight variety. But sometimes when it’s really hot, cold is nice too. I don’t really understand the obsession with the jars though. I feel like it is soo trendy to put all of your food in a jar, why? I guess it’s easy to transport, but there is also tupperware.

    • Hahaha, good point you have there! I guess it’s really more of a trend. Personally, I got those glasses for a couple of cents. I don’t think I’d get good quality tupperware for that price. I guess it would be possible to chuck them in the microwave, but i see your point, in that case the good old porridge would be the way to go! 🙂

      • Can you use Greek yogurt for the oats instead of milk

        • Hi Andrea,
          yep, that’s possible! But make sure you stir or shake everything well. Also, the next morning you probably have to add some water or milk to “loosen it up” a little 🙂

      • 5 stars
        Using glass jars is also better for the environment. Plastic wont disintigrate basically ever.. jars an serve another purpose if not for food. and def cheaper. Grab em at a thrift store.
        Amazing recipes BTW– Cant wait to try some
        Its almst fall, makes me wanna exiriment w sweet potato and maple..hmmm gotta go 🙂

    • So you don’t heat the overnight oatmeal the next morning to eat?

  15. I will admit that breakfast is not my most favourite meal. Makes it easier for my morning workout if I do eat. Oatmeal is such a great food source….and overnight oatmeal is the best. I don’t have to think about it in the morning…just open the fridge..grab and eat! AWESOME!!

    • exactly!! 😀
      Interesting, what kind of sports do you make in the mornings? For me it’s super hard to get me motivated to do anything sportive at that time of the day.

      • 5 stars
        Hi, I’m sooo late, but I love oatmeal & all things good. In fact I have a brick oven I bake all my own breads, using ancient grains (modern gmo wheat contains toxic gluten) I fresh grind my grains & generally use starter instead of yeast. This is perfect for me. Does it heat up nicely, I love my oats warm. I hate sweets so I would have to adjust some recipes, not too much work, right?
        Thanks for your effort, great tutorial. I’m glad I discovered your site, love ❤️ it!

        • Hi there!
          Wow that sounds really awesome about the brick oven and using ancient grains only. I’m at my parents house on their farm now, I feel things are back to the roots as well here. Good feeling. Yes, I would say all recipes listed in this post work without the sweeteners. No problem there 🙂

  16. 5 stars
    I am so not a breakfast person, but, I love having 28 jars of inspiration. I think I will add some extra macadamia nuts.

  17. I was just looking for recipes for overnight oats. I would like to try them but haven’t made the jump yet….My only concern is the texture. Are they super chewy?

  18. Overnight Oats are like my favourite thing in the world to make for breakfast! Just love how versatile they are, the flavour combinations are endless! Great tutorial and flavour ideas!

  19. I’ve always loved oats but just recently discovered the delicious goodness that are overnight oats! And how neat to put them in a jar so I can take it to the office and have breakfast there if I’m ina hurry. Thanks for the many recipes! 🙂

  20. Beverley @ sweaty&fit

    Orange juice?! You’re crazy 😉 But i like it!
    Recently i haven’t been having too many issues with getting my breakfast in in the morning, but as soon as winter hits I know i’m going to be hitting that snooze button way too much. I will definitely be turning to these babies for my breakfast! Have a great weekend guys!

    • Hahhaa, well it works! I’ve seen some people do it. I personally prefer some kind of milk 🙂
      I stopped hitting the snooze button recently. But only because I finally gave up thinking I get up earlier than really necessary

  21. I simply love overnight oats! Thanks for sharing this! 🙂

  22. Chris @ SimpleFood365

    I have been wanting to try overnight oats here. I think you have me convinced!

  23. I’ve never made overnight oats but I should consider doing:) Great tips!

  24. Damn overnight oats and their easiness. I wish I could eat oats.

  25. Katalina @ Peas & Peonies

    I really love the convenience of overnight oats, the flavor combos are endless.

  26. Love overnight oats in jar and your post looks so easy too 🙂

  27. Callie | Flour and Fancy

    I’ve been interested in getting into the overnight oats game. It certainly beats preparing them in the morning or going the instant route. Love these tips and recipes!

  28. 5 stars
    I just discovered overnight outs earlier this Summer, this is a great resource for me, thanks for sharing, pinning!

  29. This is such a genius idea and I really need to start implementing it to make my mornings go smoother! It is my first year having kids in school and I always feel behind!

  30. 5 stars
    Ohhhhh, THIS is what overnight oats are! I actually never heard of it before. I’m making this to have for breakfast for my busy mornings! Friggen brilliant.

  31. Sandra @

    What a great time saver! I have never tried this before, but I will now 🙂

    One of my favourite time savers is to cut up a few pineapples into bite size pieces and put them in the same type of jars as the overnight oats. I love having the fridge full of grap and go snacks. I think this type of prep is life changing because if you are surrounded by healhty grab and go snacks it will keep you away from junk food.

  32. Right, this is absolutely brill but I just cannot stomach cold breakfast like that. Howie, please,please put some recipes together that can be microwaved in the morning! X

    • Hi Ala!!
      Sounds like a good idea, will think of something.
      Btw, this morning I felt the same and decided to just fill the oats in a bowl and microwaved them. Easy 😀

  33. Oh wow! Thank you SO much for mentioning my jars! I totally appreciate your support!

  34. a friend of mine told me about overnight oats and I was instantly intrigued. I am wondering about something and I hate to sound weird but, are people eating this straight out of the refrigerator or are they warming it up once they get to the office?

    • Both!! 😀
      I eat them straight out of the fridge. But sometimes I fill the overnight oats in a bowl and heat them for a minute or two in the microwave 🙂

    • Yes I’m with you about eating it cold. Oatmeal has always been eaten hot in my family. Not sure if i could even tempt to eat it COLD. But guess i won’t know if I don’t try it : )

    Can You put protien powder in this recipie? If you can- what stage? Thanks! Made overnight oats for my husband and he loved them <3

    • Excellent question! Didn’t think of adding protein powder to my overnight oats yet, but that deffo makes sense. I would add the powder just with the other ingredients. Then I would add enough liquid (eg. milk) screw the lid on and shake that glass for a couple of seconds to make sure I don’t get any lumps. Hope it works out! 🙂

  36. Thanks for the recipe ideas.
    My favourite is to add 0% fat flavoured yoghurt (my favourites are the banana custard and toffee Müller lights) and chopped banana.

  37. Love this kind of breakfast… thank you for amazing delicious recipes here…
    Good reason to start a wonderful day with a big smile and be happy all day

    Just had my first jar of overnight oats. And I loved it. I wonder why did I not figure it out earlier. This is so simple and perfect for my busy schedule. Thank you. 🙂

  39. How does this work with frozen fruit? Does it thaw by morning, or do I need to thaw it first?

  40. how would steel cut oats work with this? Should I let it sit longer?

  41. Why can’t we add avocado in the jar of overnight oats?

    Hi! Can I use water instead of milk?

  43. 5 stars
    Are we talking about Quick oats here, or rolled oats? Or maybe it doesn’t matter?

  44. Hi, I just started looking up at overnight oats and ur recipe sounds simple and yum, definitely going to try it soon. A question though, does it have to go into the fridge overnight? Doesn’t keeping it outside but cool work?

    • Hi Sadh!
      Coolio, hope you like them. Yes, keeping them outside the fridge for one night would also work, but of course they are not likely to stay fresh for for three or more days.

      Best regards!

    I really want to do this right now this second but it’s 3 in the morning o.o guess i’ll have to wait another day. Instead of milk, could you add chocolate flavoured oatmilk? Or is it to much with oatmilk on the oats?

    • Hi Hanna! I think the oats will be “soggy” enough if you’d eat them at 8am. Yes, chocolate flavoured oatmilk would work just fine. I see your point: oats + oatmilk sounds too much. I tried it a couple of times and I think it’s tasty 🙂

      • 5 stars
        Thank you for the answer 🙂 i made a batch of oats, chocolate oatmilk and some Nutella about 4 hours ago and i tried a little of it just now and it tastes a bit like chocolate and oat balls mixure (it is very popular in Sweden where i live) and i absolute love it! Can’t wait to eat it tomorrow morning before school 🙂 thank you so much for the recipe! 🙂

        • You’re welcome, Hanna!
          I usually add some more liquid before eating them, especially if the mixture is too thick. Nutella is a smart idea, I like 😀

  46. Hi , Can I use precooked oats? ( Oats that can be prepared in three minutos?

  47. How much exactly is 0.6 cups? Google actually did not have an outright answer. Lol

    • Hi Felicia!
      Oh, sorry about that. 0.6 cups is about 2/3 of a cup. Depending on how much appetite you have in the mornings, half a cup of oats might actually be better. Especially for females who tend to eat less then the guys 🙂

      • Thanks so much! Purchased my jars yesterday and can’t wait to start tonight!

        • Hahaaa!! Awesome, Felicia!
          I’m experimenting with overnight quinoa at the moment and I like it a lot I have to admit 😀

    We cannot eat with a spoon at our desks in work can this be blitzed to be a drink rather… do you have any recipe ideas?

    • Hi Julie!
      Oh, I’m sorry to hear that. Yep this definitely works as a smoothie kind of drink as well, but I’m 100% you need to use more liquid than indicated in the basic recipe 🙂

  49. Can you make several in advance and freeze them (and maybe thaw in the fridge the night before)?

    • Hmm, interesting idea! I’m not sure how they would taste after they’ve been frozen to be honest. There’s only one way to find out I’t say 😉

  50. Is there a reason why we put the fruit in the night before instead of having them freshly included the morning after?

  51. 5 stars
    I do the basics…porridge and I use coconut milk or almond milk not so greasy and suprisingly nice in the porridge. In the morning I blitz it in my processor (no names mentioned) with random fruit, or frozen fruit, milled linseed, kale if it’s still fresh or spinach, maple syrup or agave and more milk so it’s thin enough to go through a thick shake straw, then some Chia seeds after its blitzed cause they don’t have to be cracked. And it’s like those expensive yogurt drinks you buy that are full of preservatives but fresh…

    • How cool is that idea Julie? It almost sounds like I should dedicate a whole recipe based on these directions. I’ll think about something, if find the time and you don’t mind 😀

  52. Louise Mackenzie

    Hi there I may missed anothoer comment on this but just wondered roughly what the calorie value would be…just on average thanks

    • Hi Louise! Ha that’s a funny coincedence. I just checked it myself:
      Roughly estimated nutrition per serving for a 2/3 filled jar: 350 kcal, 10g fat, 60g carbs, 15g protein
      To reach those numbers I filled my glass with the following:
      1/2 cup oats
      1 cup soy milk
      2 tbsp chopped nuts
      1/4 cup fruit or berries
      Half a tbsp maple syrup or other sweetener

      Hope that helps 🙂

  53. Can you use frozen fruits in this recipe? We run a Bed & Breakfast in Newfoundland, Canada and it’s 1.5 hrs to the closest store with any type of good fresh fruits or produce (seriously, I’m not exaggerating). I can buy all type of frozen berries, mangos, peaches etc, but have a heck of a time finding fresh. I’d LOVE to serve this as a breakfast option since we’re in a National Park where hiking is the number 1 activity for tourists. Also, if I doubled the quantity would I have to adjust any of the ingredients? Thanks for any feedback,,, this recipe sounds amazing and can’t wait to try it for MY breakfast.

    • Wow, 1.5 hours is a lot! I just went over to trip advisor, such a cool place you have 😀
      Yes, frozen fruits work absolutley fine, berries especially. I never tried frozen mango, but I can imagine it’ll taste sublime.
      Yes, for bigger servings I’d just multiply all ingredients, no exceptions. Hopefully they’ll be a success at your BnB!
      Best regards,

  54. This does seem so easy. I must try it because it’s perfectly healthy and I bet it’s tasty as well. A really good idea 🙂

    hi! can i not put the jar in the fridge overnight??

  56. 5 stars
    Greeting from Indonesia.Thank you for lots of variations to prepare overnight oats.Berries don’t grow in tropical climate.Can I use tropical fruits like pineapple?

    • Absolutely Ariana! But with pineapple you need to watch out! In combination with cow milk it turns bitter after a couple of minutes.
      Either try vegan milk or pick a different tropical fruit. Ooor just add pineapple right before eating 🙂

  57. Last time i tried overnight oats i didn’t like the texture. But I’m inspired to try again! At the very least, it may reduce the cooking time in the morning. Also a great way to use frozen fruit. I also have a hard time getting my daughter to eat in the morning, but she might like this without the added morning cooking (and cooling) time. Thanks!

  58. 5 stars
    Cool recipe! Do you mix it all together before putting it in the refrigerator? Or do you mix it in the morning when it’s ready?

    • Hi Dennis! Actually, it depends on the ingredients. If I add chia seeds, I make sure to mix it as soon as I added the milk, because they loooove sticking everywhere. So, a good mix will make sure you won’t end up with a knob of chia seeds at the bottom of your glass in the morning 😉

  59. I love overnight oats and I make them for my step-mom sometimes when she had early mornings. Though, she found that they had a little “bit” to them. So, her being a textual person, I’d pour over boiling water and cover for 5-10 minutes. Then prepare as regular – still using milk (any varient), but you probably won’t need as much.
    When you make them, testing them to make sure the flavor’s on point, it’s hard not to eat the whole thing.
    Good Mix: about 1/3 C milk, as much cinnamon as desired, about 1/2 – 1 T brown sugar, and any kind of fruit (berries pair very well with this).

    • Wow, awesome tip Crystal! My mom used to make them like that and it’s definitely a cool way to have oats like that. Now that you mention it I might have to give it a go right now, hahah

  60. Love overnight oats! They have been my go to breakfast for a couple of years now. I, however, use equal parts oats, yoghurt and a smattering of anything fruity or crunchy that I have on hand that weeks. The oats take the liquid outs of the yoghurt and makes it super creamy. I make three or four and a time, put them in my work fridge and voila – winning at life!

    Really amazing! these many types of oats recipes are there,Surely I can prepare it to reduce my weight. I am really shocking because i know only two type of recipe that also very bore to eat repeatedly. Thank you very much your post.

  62. 5 stars
    What a fantastic list of great recipes! So bookmark worthy. Thank you so much 🙂

  63. I have steel-cut oats, not rolled oats, so I don’t know how this will affect overnight oats. Another recipe of yours, Cottage Cheese Pancakes, worked with steel-cut oats, after I ground the oats in a blender so it looked like flour, before mixing with the other ingredients.
    My steel-cut oat container from Whole Foods gives a number of ways of preparing them, including regular stove top, crockpot, and overnight, but I only used the stove top so far. Their overnight instructions say that boiling the liquid first before mixing and putting in the fridge reduces cooking time but doesn’t eliminate it in the morning, although it says to use low heat the next morning, I am wondering if the instructions for heating the next morning are only if you want to eat it warm instead of cold.

    • Hi Susan! Thanks for trying out the Cottage Cheese Pancakes 😀
      I hope they turned out good!
      Yes, you can also use steel cut oats for overnight oats, but they might be a bit more chewy than rolled oats. A trick to make them softer is to leave the overnight oats jar outside a fridge for a couple of hours. Room temperature makes them go softer more quickly.

  64. This may be a weird question, but can I use oatmeal packets to make this recipe? I have a lot of them on hand, but I don’t like to “cook” first thing in the morning….

    • Hi Dagmar!
      Yep those packets would also work well 🙂

      • I am guessing that I wouldn’t need to season them, as they are mostly flavored packets, but how many packets will I need to make the overnight oatmeal? One? Two? I’m sorry if I seem a little frazzled, but I cannot afford to waste anything right now.

        • If they’re already pre-seasoned then you don’t. Luckily nothing is lost, if it doesn’t taste “just right” the next morning. You can always add cinnamon, a different spice or a sweetener when eating the overnight oats 🙂

    Hi, I love all of your recipes for overnight oats but a couple of them are going to the wrong page. I clicked on Superfood Overnight Oats and Cinnamon Roll Spice Oatmeal and those links actually pull up the apple cinnamon oatmeal page instead. I then typed in the name of those oatmeal recipes and your page said the page was gone so I was hoping to see if those could be added again. Thanks for your help!! I can’t wait to make these for myself and my son for in the mornings.

    • Autumn, thanks a ton for the heads up!! Strange that I didn’t notice that mistake before. It’s fixed, the links lead to the correct pages now. I’m going to prepare myself some overnight oats for the work week too 🙂

  66. I like your trick to make overnight oats and definitely going to try this .thanks for sharing this

  67. 5 stars
    This is a recipe for all ages! As a high school student I always find myself running to catch the bus before I could eat breakfast (and sometimes have embarrassing stomach growls right before lunch). I am so glad I found overnight oats so that I could make this before bed and eat on the way to school! Thanks so much, I loved the post. 😀

  68. I had no idea what rolled oats were so I just bought the regular oatmeal. Will that work?

  69. 5 stars
    Thanks for the Recipes! 🙂 Will try this with the available ingredients I have.. Can’t wait to have my breakfast tomorrow.. 😉

    • You’re more than welcome, Bevs! Yes, you can always mix and match to create your own personal, awesome versions of course. Enjoy breakfast!

  70. I’m starting a meal plan soon and this sounds like the perfect quick breakfast (which I struggle with in the am) Just to clarify, are these meant to be eaten cold? Also, will water still do the trick instead of the other liquids mentioned?

    • Hi Roberto!
      Ah interesting stuff; what kind of meal plan are you trying out if I may ask?
      I usually eat them cold. But if you wanted to you could warm them up as well.

  71. I have never tried these but just wonder if it is ok or good to heat them up in the morning? I would not like it cold. Would that work?

    • Absolutely, Rejeanne! The easiest way is a minute or so in the microwave (provided they’re in a suitable container of course). I almost always eat mine hot 🙂

  72. 4 stars
    Have always been the type who forgets to eat breakfast… tried these recipes out and it was awesome! Thanks so much!

  73. I love the sound of these, but will whole grain oatmeal work as well? I am trying to eat more whole grains for health reasons.

  74. Since several people mention they don’t care for breakfast foods or sweet things, I wanted to share this. I sometimes make steel cut oats (the regular way, on a stove top), but I make them savory: salt, pepper, basil, sun-dried tomatoes, grated Parmesan cheese. Maybe some people would like this idea as an overnight recipe, but take them for lunch if they don’t want something this savory for breakfast. I wouldn’t put the cheese in overnight, though. I would add it right before eating and would probably be better heated up. Also, would use water for this instead of milk. Can still add chia seeds, walnuts or slivered almonds, and a little olive oil.

    • Oh I like the sound of this savoury oats dish. Also a savoury Asian version I love… oats soaked overnight in water. Stir fry in a little oil, around a 1/4 cup of carrot, broccoli bits and the desired amount of finely chopped ginger (I use half a thumb). Add a soup spoon full of the oats and cook till thick. Add your favourite salt seasoning to taste and some chopped coriander if you like it, then garnish with 3 drops of sesame oil. Bliss.

  75. As far as the savory recipe, if you make it the night before, and especially if you decide to make it for lunch, you can always saute a little spinach or kale and add to it or fresh arugula right before you eat it : )

    Hi not sure if this has been asked yet but I was wondering if you can make a few up and keep in fridge or do you have to make them fresh every night

  77. Just tried the basic recipe for the first time. So good! Made an overnight oats believer of me . I’m a dietitian; I’ve been referring clients to your site.
    Here are my questions:
    Some recipes suggest layering—so should you not shake those ones before putting in the fridge? Oats will still be fine?
    Also, how come the basic recipe has 1 cup of milk but most of the 6 favourites have half a cup?

    • So glad you enjoy these overnight oats recipes!! Also thanks a ton for referring us, that means a lot to us actually. Good points: Yep, some photos suggest layering – and it’s basically to make the jar look pretty, nothing else. Though I always would soak the oats and chia seeds with milk. The other ingredients don’t have to be soaked, necessarily. About the half a cup vs one cup – good catch! Both works, but the more milk you use the “mushier” the oats get. So, I think it’s what you prefer really.
      When I make overnight oats for myself and not for photos, I add all the ingredients, fill it up with milk until everything is covered and then shake everything. That’s how I like them best 🙂

  78. 5 stars
    Have you tried any using the flavored coffee creamers? I just found strawberry cheesecake flavored coffee creamer. I think I will try one of these using it. Also, with people that want to add water, couldn’t they put a bit of powdered milk in it? We do something similar for camping, using the powdered milk then hot water when you want to eat it.

  79. 5 stars
    Is it necessary to sweeten the oats in the morning? I use liquid stevia. Could it be added the night before?

    • I do like to sweeten the oats, yep! Actually, I prefer to add some honey or maple syrup in the morning, though you could also add some in the evo. Especially if you have brekki at work or on the go 🙂

  80. must the overnight oatmeal be prepared only in a glass container?

    • Hi Sylvia, you could use various methods for storing (like a bowl with a cover) too, for example. We tend towards glass with a tight-fitting lid for ease of transportation 🙂

  81. Great idea, tried it and I actually enjoyed oatmeal. Thanks,h

  82. Chris Anderson

    Can you use cooking oats? My Doctor told me I need to eat the ones you have to cook on the stove, not the instant ones or anything like that. If I can use the cooking ones, do I have to cook them on the stove first, then do all this or do they also work the same?

    • Hi Chris! By cooking oats do you mean regular old fashioned oats instead of those instant cooking oats?
      Yep, those old fashioned oats work fine as well!

  83. Is it okey if I soaked all my week-mornings oats through sunday (8 hours), put them on their respective tupperware, put them on the fridge and each day i grab one and cooked it? Is the soaked oats of sunday next week (7 days in the fridge) gonna be okey? No mold?

  84. Hello, in the program that is made for gaining muscle, it’s written that it’s 450 calories, but in this page it’s 350. What is the difference?

    • Hi Farid, thanks for asking. The 350 cals is the ‘basic’ version of the overnight oats. In the muscle building meal plan the extra 100 cals is to cover the chia or flax seeds we recommend adding. I hope that clears things up 🙂

  85. Thanks for all the recipes. Trying to lower cholesterol and just going to eliminate fattening stuff.

  86. Diane Klungseth

    Do they have to be made in a jar? Can a plastic container with a lid be used?

    • Hi Diane! Yes, almost any container with a lid is fine. If it’s for transporting, do make sure the lid really sticks on tight!

  87. I made overnight oats with almond milk and Greek yogurt. In the morning husband likes to add hot almond milk before eating, he can’t eat cold oats, is it safe to add hot milk to the yogurt mix??

    • Hi Lynn! Yes, to be sure you could add some hot milk. Just give it all a good stir so the yogurt doesn’t separate too much 🙂

  88. Hello

    There’s no instructions on the APPLE INC.” which I am just abouts to make I think a couple others had no instructions either but so far I’ve tried the banana and choc and the pineapple coconut I’ve never had over night oats before and first mouth I was a bit worried about the cold but I absolutely love them now more then when they are warm thank you for these delicious recipes! I’m trying them all out!

    • Hi Morgan! Cool to hear you like the sound of our overnight oats recipes 😀
      Actually, kust today I convinced my girlfriend to try them as well. She was similarly surprised like you, haha. About the instructions: I left them out because I thought it was self-explanatory. What do you think?

  89. Love all of the ideas for recipes. Can you use a vanilla protein shake as the milk substitute? Has anyone out here tried that? If so, how did it taste?

    • Hi Melody, I’m sure you could! I often use protein powder in my overnight oats and they come out great. Just to be sure, start with a small batch (as opposed to a week’s worth or something) to check it out. But I bet it’ll be very tasty 🙂

  90. I’m very interested in the refrigerator oatmeal. I can never find exactly what i’m looking for at one site. So hopefully you come across and discover more options that I’m interested in trying so I won’t need to spend all day searching different sites to figure out a game plan.

    what size jar do you use

    • Hi Richard, we generally use half pint or pint jars here. For transporting, half pint jars are best, at home it doesn’t matter so much 🙂

  104. Love all the recipe ideas and some questions and answers i learned from.I didn’t see anyone ask about quinoa.. Would that work??

  107. Can I use steel cut oats for the overnight oatmeal?

    • Hi Debbie! Yes, you can. We suggest leaving the jar outside of the fridge for a few hours at the beginning if possible – this will speed up the softening process and help the oats be a bit less chewy 🙂

  108. Such healthy stuff was the thing I wanted to read and try, it is so easy to make and might taste awesome as well. I used to earlier prepare oats in milk with some sugar or honey depending on my mood but now I am surely trying out this recipe to know how it will taste.

    I should use unsweetened or sweetened yogurt? I like to eat with fruit, is there any problem?

    • Honestly, whichever you prefer! I would probably take slightly sweetened myself, but there are so many flavours in there (especially if you’re adding lots of fruit) so you could definitely get away with unsweetened. No probs with fruit, frozen is best added the night before so it has time to thaw, fresh can also be added the day before or just as you’re getting ready to eat 🙂

And I found what I wanted for so many days. I loved the Chocolate Banana Bonkers as I have tried only that recipe until now. The tasty mornings with these oatmeals have urged me to try every other variation too. Thank you for sharing. It was a delectable article. Lol

    • Hi Heidi, thanks for the pointer!! You’re right, I need to fix that. It’s half a cup of milk with half a cup of oats 🙂
