With this overnight oats recipe, you can have a healthy, stress-free breakfast ready in the fridge.
This delicious no-cook, overnight oatmeal (some call it porridge or muesli or refrigerator oatmeal) can be made in a variety of different “flavors,” but all of them come down to a few basic ingredients: old-fashioned rolled oats, Greek yogurt, milk, chia seeds, and a fruit or nut topping of your choice. To make a vegan version, use coconut milk instead of Greek yogurt and a plant-based milk instead of dairy milk.
No matter which way you work it, each variety is packed with a healthy dose of protein, calcium, and fiber. The chia seeds pack a powerhouse of nutritional benefits, including fiber, protein, calcium, and omega-3 fatty acids.
The best part about this recipe is that you can make it the night before or even several days in advance and keep a few flavors handy for when you need to grab a quick nutritious breakfast or snack.
