Ingredients You’ll Need
- Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats – this particular type of oatmeal is a must – do not substitute quick-cooking oats in this recipe.
- Milk – 2%, skim, or almond milk all work great in this recipe.
- Greek Yogurt – any other type of yogurt also works great here, but we love the texture + added protein Greek yogurt gives these oats.
- Vanilla Extract – a generous splash of vanilla adds tons of flavor to these oats.
- Agave Syrup – honey or maple syrup also work great as a substitute!
- Berries – fresh strawberries + blueberries make up our mixed berry filling with just a bit of sugar + lemon juice to brighten the fruit. You can also use thawed frozen fruit!
Choosing Your Fruit
While you can certainly keep it simple with the classic combo of strawberries + blueberries, check out these other fruit mix-ins we love! –>
- Apples (peeled and sauteed on the stove)
Tips for Meal Prepping Overnight Oats
You can meal prep these overnight oats up to 6 days in advance. This recipe also doubles or triples VERY easily! We typically triple the recipe so we have breakfast made all week.
I recommend storing the oats in pint-sized mason jars and any fruit mix-ins separately. When you are ready to serve the oats, spoon the fruit on top.
Some people prefer hot oatmeal in the morning and the good news is you can warm up these overnight oats! In a microwave-safe container, microwave oats on high 1-2 minutes until heated through. Top with fruit as recipe directs.
Think of this recipe as a blank canvas for SO many rifts on overnight oats! It’s very easily adapted into other variations.
Don’t like Greek yogurt? You can easily substitute your favorite yogurt into this recipe! Check out a few of our other favorite flavor twists. –>
- Mini chocolate chips + sliced bananas
- Fresh pineapple + flaked coconut
- Dark chocolate chips + raspberries
- Peaches + lemon Greek yogurt
These may be simple as far as oats go, guys, but trust me, simple is BEST here. You can change it up with any kind of fruit you have on hand to make it fun too!
I’m telling ya tho, the creamy Greek yogurt + mixed berries + oatmeal combo is just a classic that’ll never get old.
The fact that it pretty much just makes itself overnight into the CREAMIEST oatmeal ever with only 5 minutes prep time the night before is just the best thing ever.
Take a few minutes and stock your fridge with these overnight oats, y’all! You won’t regret it.
