{Recipe} Simple overnight oats

Ever since I featured a picture of my overnight oats many people have been asking me how I make mine. Mine are nothing special but they are very delicious, nutritious and really fill you up. I usually have mine for breakfast but on odd occasions I have them for lunch or super too. I started making overnight oats about a year ago now when I got tired of buying the same when I could actually make them and save me a lot of money. I am not saying I don’t like the store bought ones I am saying I prefer mine because I know every ingredient and I can pronounce it without the help of a dictionary.

Healthy and Delicious overnight oats that will give you energy and make you feel great.


  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup milk (I like almond or soya but you can use any)
  • 2 tablespoons natural yoghurt
  • chopped handful of choice of fresh fruits (I used kiwi and strawberries)
  • Tablespoon of nutella (optional)


  1. Put your oats in a bowl or lunch box, I have a few sized lunch boxes that I use to make the oats and carry to work for breakfast.
  2. Pour in the milk of choice, as I shared I prefer almond or soya but I use normal semi skimmed milk too.
  3. Mix until all oats are soaked in milk, they will not soften yet but should all be immersed in milk.
  4. Add yoghurt and mix, I like to use natural yoghurt but flavoured also works.
  5. Then add your chosen fruits and mix, you can add in as many fruits as you like. I always have berries and other fruits in combination
  6. Cover the bowl with a lid or cling film and put in the Fridge overnight, this will allow the mixture to settle and the oats will absorb all the excess milk.
  7. Enjoy and top it up with a tablespoon of nutella

I have overnight oats at least 3 times a week for breakfast and I always feel energised and full until lunch time which is 4 hours later. I also like to make these in batches and keep them in the Fridge until ready to be eaten, they do not go off and as I said can be eaten anytime.
