I followed her recipe with equal proportions of a half cup of oats, greek yogurt, and milk and then additions to suit your taste. I followed her How to Make Overnight Oats Recipes and found that my morning oats were a little more than I needed. Since there are equal amounts of the main ingredients, it will be very easy to make them smaller or larger.
I had a medium sized (almost 18 oz) container of two percent Fage Greek Yogurt. I added honey (mixes better in yogurt than cold milk) and flax meal. This would be a good place to add protein powder or any dry ingredient you like instead of flax. I realized I could have the yogurt mixed ahead of time and ready for the next Overnight Oats Recipes.
I found a lidded jar that would fit two cups of Overnight Oats with a wide enough top for adding ingredients. I put in the milk and oats, shook it well, stirred in the yogurt mixture, and added the fruit.
I fixed one oat concoction with sliced banana and cut up gluten free dark chocolate brownie from the freezer. Yum!! For the other yogurt mixture I added cinnamon applesauce with only a splash of milk. I didn’t taste that one, but my husband said it was good and polished his off.
I haven’t offered Overnight Oats to the kids, they might like it too, but I would recommend it to Moms who need a quick hearty breakfast. The grandkids loved dipping fruit and whole grain crackers into almond butter with a little Nutella mixed in to it. Another quick healthy snack or breakfast.
As the sun smiles down on your morning, try an easy Overnight Oats Recipe and enjoy your day.
