Basic overnight oats recipe

 

INGREDIENTS:

 1 cup rolled oats
 1 tablespoon chia seeds
 ½ cup nonfat Greek yogurt
 1 cup milk of choice (I used unsweetened almond milk)
 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
 1 tablespoon sweetener of choice (honey or maple syrup)
 Add any fruit of your choice

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Place all ingredients into a large glass container and mix until combined.
2. Put the top on the container and place into the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight.

 

Chia seeds: Chia seeds are not only a great source of antioxidants, fiber, and omega-3’s, but they help thicken your overnight oats and make them extremely creamy and satisfying.

Greek yogurt: Greek yogurt is such an amazing, tangy add-in for overnight oats that really enhances the flavor and makes them extra creamy. Oh, and it’s a great post of extra protein.

Honey or maple syrup: All-natural sweeteners are key when it comes to overnight oats. Ditch the table sugar or brown sugar for something more natural like honey or maple syrup.
