Overnight Oats (with SO many variations)

Let’s get an equation on the books :

  • 3/4 Rolled Oats (not quick oats) + 3.4 cup Non-Dairy Milk + 1-2 TBSP Chia Seeds = BREAKFAST

I simply love overnight oats and not because I am a fitness trainer. When I am in a sugar low, I love reaching into the fridge for a couple of tablespoons to tide me over which works every time. A sugar low is real (hello 3pm??) and it is quite literally your blood sugar levels dropping. An instant hit of a complex carb like Overnight Oats helps to lift it back up again.


  • Almond milk, oat milk and cashew milk are all amazing but experiment with any non-dairy milk
  • I use gluten-free rolled oats but if you can also use traditional oats if you aren’t gluten intolerant.
  • Use more chia seeds to make it thicker.
  • Add 1 tbsp nut butter – you can swirl it through.
  • Add 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds
  • Add 2 tsp cinnamon
  • Add 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice, or a mix of 1/2 tsp cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamon
  • If you have a sweet tooth, add a little maple syrup (2 tsp maple syrup)


  • Top with 1/4 cup greek yogurt or coconut yogurt
  • Add 1/2 cup fresh blueberries, peaches
  • Top with 2 tbsp slivered almonds, toasted pecans or walnuts
  • Add 1 tbsp chia seed jam
  • Add 2 tsp vanilla or almond extract
  • Add 1 tbsp dried unsweetened coconut
  • Add 1/2 cup frozen cherries


  • Peach, pecan. pumpkin and cinnamon
  • Blueberry-vanilla with walnuts
  • Almond and cherry with a splash of vanilla
  • Chia jam, Almond Butter and overnight oats (like a PB & J)
  • Almond Love: almond extract, slivered almonds and almond butter


  1. Mix oats, non-dairy milk and chia seeds in a mason jar. Add flavours (spices, extract) and let sit overnight. Add toppings in the AM. Oats will last 2-3 days in the fridge.
