Overnight oats base (makes 4 jars)

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 3 cups almond or coconut milk
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt (optional)
  • 1/4 cup chia, flax or hemp seeds (optional)

Peanut butter

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter


  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp chocolate shavings


  • 2 cups finely chopped strawberries


  • 2 cups mashed blueberries


  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg

Apple cinnamon

  • 2 cups finely chopped green apple
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon

Carrot cake

  • 2 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 tsp cinnamon


  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • NOTE: use coconut milk instead of almond milk for your base

Banana bread

  • 2 bananas, mashed
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  • Mix together base ingredients of choice in a large bowl. Note that Greek yogurt and seeds are optional - you really only need to mix together milk of choice and oats, then add your flavored add-ins.
  • Once you have mixed up your base, add your add-ins. Most flavors only require 1-3 ingredients. For instance, if wanting to make the carrot cake overnight oats, mix the carrots, coconut and cinnamon into your overnight oats base.
  • Divide mixture among 4 mason jars then let sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours, or overnight. Jars will last in the fridge up to 5 days so they are perfect for meal prep!



NOTE: Nutritional info is per jar without any fillings (just the base ingredients).
Sweeten your overnight oats using honey, maple syrup, stevia, dates, applesauce, coconut or mashed banana.
Make these overnight oats vegan by using a vegan milk and swapping out the Greek yogurt for hemp hearts, nut butters or protein powder.
Store the mason jars in the fridge for up to 5 days then eat them cold.
Freeze overnight oats for up to 6 months. Reheat them in the microwave or defrost in the fridge overnight then eat them cold.
