Breakfast Challenge Overnight Oats

Making overnight oats is a healthier way to eat oatmeal.


1⁄2 cup
rolled old fashioned oats
1⁄2 cup
milk of your choice (dairy or plant based)
1⁄4 cup
Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon
chia seeds
1 tablespoon
sweetner - honey or maple syrup
1⁄4 teaspoon
vanilla extract



  1. Place all ingredients into a large glass container and mix until combined.
  2. Cover the glass container with a lid or a wrap. Place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  3. Toppings can be added the night before or immediately before serving.
  4. Uncover and enjoy from the glass container the next day. Thin with a little more milk or water, if desired.

Storage: Overnight oats can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days. This makes it an ideal breakfast meal prep to make on Sunday night for the week.

Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However here are some common substitutes that would work well in this recipe.

  • Make it vegan: Use plant-based milk, plant-based yogurt, and maple syrup for sweetener
  • Make it gluten-free: Use certified gluten-free oats
  • Make it sugar-free: Omit the sweetener all together or used mashed or pureed fruit in the base recipe
