Overnight Oats

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 0 minutes
Course Breakfast
Servings 2


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 cups milk or yogurt your choice
  • 1 cup mixed fruits such as berries, bananas, apples, chopped
  • 1/2 cup mixed nuts such as almonds, walnuts, pecans, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons honey or to taste


  • Mix Oats and Milk/Yogurt: In a large bowl, combine the rolled oats with your choice of milk or yogurt. Stir until the oats are fully immersed in the liquid.
  • Incorporate Fruits and Nuts: Fold in half of the chopped fruits and nuts into the oat mixture, allowing them to blend flavors overnight.
  • Add Honey: Pour honey over the mixture and stir well, ensuring it’s evenly distributed for a balanced sweetness.
  • Refrigerate Overnight: Cover the bowl and place it in the refrigerator overnight, or for a minimum of 6-8 hours. This duration lets the oats absorb the liquid and soften, while the flavors meld together.
  • Add Fresh Toppings: Before serving, stir the oat mixture. If it seems too thick, adjust the consistency with a bit more milk or yogurt. Top each serving with the remaining fresh fruits and nuts.


Additional Garnishes: Optional toppings can include a sprinkle of cinnamon, a dollop of nut butter, or extra honey tailored to your taste.
