A super simple and quick way to make vanilla overnight oats. This no-cook recipe is the easiest way to have a healthy breakfast without all the fuss and the best part about them is that you don’t have to let them sit overnight! This super simple breakfast comes together in fives minutes and is ready to eat in just an hour! No more waiting “overnight” for the best oatmeal of your life!


This is my super simple go-to overnight oat recipe. There’s a few things I always put in my overnight oats:

Oats (obviously)

Protein Powder – adds sweetness, protein and makes your oats creamy!

Almond Milk 

Chia Seeds or Flax Meal – FIBER!

Slivered Almonds or Nuts – for crunch

Fruit – Bonus flavors!

I really dislike the term “overnight oats” because you actually don’t have to wait overnight to eat this oatmeal. I personally love the way they taste after just one hour of chilling in the fridge. It’s long enough that the chia seeds have expanded somewhat and oats have soaked up most of the liquid.

Pro tip: using an almost empty peanut butter jar to make your overnights will result in the best overnight oats of your life!!!


When I’m not flying out the door with breakfast in hand, I usually try and make myself a solid breakfast that consists of eggs, veggies and some toast. And then sometimes I make myself dessert for breakfast like these Best Ever Vegan Cinnamon Rolls made gluten-free!  

If you haven’t tried this vegan cinnamon roll recipe yet, what the heck are you waiting for? THEY ARE THE BEST EVER just like the title says!

Can I substitute mashed banana or applesauce for the yogurt? I’m lactose intolerant and haven’t liked any of the substitutes I’ve tried. Thanks!


Hey girl! You can eliminate it all together. I’m dairy free now and I just don’t add it anymore or use dairy free yogurt 🙂
