INGREDIENTS for basic oats:

  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ½ nut milk (or coconut milk, or water, or coconut water)
  • 1-2 tsp agave or pure maple syrup
  • 1 TB ground chia seeds or flax (or both!)
  • pinch of salt

With the following recipes, play with the measurements.  If you want more fruit than oats, do it.  If you’re vibing with nuts and seeds, add a ton!  The only thing to note with these guys is that you have enough liquid-ish stuff (milk, yogurt, mashed banana, etc.) to soak the oats and seeds.  Having too much liquid will make your overnight oats more runny, and having too little liquid will cause them to be real dense.  You may decide you like them one of these ways though!  Just experiment.


  • Combine your “basic oats” ingredients with whatever flavor variation you choose from below — or mix-and-match, creating your own masterpiece — preferably in a jar with a lid, but not totally necessary. 
  • Let it sit in the fridge for at least 4-5 hours, or overnight.
