DIY Overnight Oats Recipe

DIY overnight oats recipe

The best part about this recipe is that there is no cooking involved, which allows you to skip the kitchen hassles comfortably. All you need to do is soak up a bowl of oats overnight in a bowl of some liquid—a liquid of your choice. 

The mixture you pop in the fridge overnight must be made from equal parts of raw rolled oats, milk and yogurt. You have the liberty to use any kind of yogurt or milk. This recipe forms the base of healthy breakfast but this does not imply that you have to limit yourself to these ingredients. 

The number of toppings you wish to use could be endless. You may add the toppings a night before or in the morning. Be careful with ingredients that you might not like soggy.


  • Milk—1/2 or 1/3 cup of milk (depending on the consistency you like)
  • Yogurt—1/3 plain cups
  • Banana—1/2
  • Chia seeds—1/2 tablespoon
  • Honey—to taste
  • Cinnamon—just a pinch

You can add fresh fruits and nuts in the morning along with your other favourite toppings.
