Recipe: The Perfect Breakfast Solution; Overnight Oats

April 27, 2015

Overnight oats, I’m sure you’ve heard of them, as they are currently all the rage, but have you tried them? I’ve been reading about overnight oats on every blog, in every magazine and all over cooking shows for the past 6 months, so I knew I had to try them! I know what you're thinking... Kristen, these aren't paleo! I know, I know, but they're healthy and delicious and I couldn't resist! 

I made these last Friday to make breakfast on Saturday a little easier and let me tell you, they were fantastic. I looked around online for all types of recipes and after finding tons of different recipes, I mixed and matched the recipes I liked the best to come up with this one! Because it was Saturday, I made two bowls, since apparently I was going for fiancé-of-the-year that day. Based on my fiancé's reaction when I served them, I think I’m going to win! I hope you all enjoy these oats as much as I did. 

  • 1/3 cup Steel cut oats
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/3 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • ½ banana
  • 2 handfulls of bananas
  • handful of cranberries
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
How to Make: 
  1. Mix together all the ingredients. 
  2. Cover and place in the fridge overnight (or at least for 2 hours).
  3. In the am, top with sliced strawberries, some extra blueberries and maybe, if you're feeling frisky, some warmed up almond butter.
  4. Don't forget the delicious coffee! 
  5. Enjoy! 
I used Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Oats
And... I used Bob's Red Mill Chia Seeds! 
And, almond milk. You could use coconut milk if you prefer. 
 The finished product!
Yum... and the coffee was delish too! :) 


  1. I've been wanting to try these. Are they cold when you eat them or warm?

  2. I used to love overnight oats! They're especially perfect when the weather gets warmer!

  3. Oh my gosh I love steel cut oats. I'm definitely using what I left of them to do this recipe. Thanks for sharing. Definitely a great way to liven up oatmeal as I'm used to oats, milk, and banana. He he.

  4. Sounds delicious! I've never made overnight oats, but I've wanted to!

  5. I am so not a morning person so something I can just grab and go is perfect. Sounds yummy.

  6. Yum!! I've made chia seed overnight pudding before but I've never tried adding in oats to the mix. Definitely going to save this to try soon.

  7. My Grandpa would love this for breakfast. I can't wait to surprise him by making it for him

  8. Ya know, I have not tried overnight oats yet. You're right, they are on every blog. I eat oatmeal for breakfast every morning. I guess I will have to try these some day.

  9. Yum Yum Yum...get in my belly!! These look super tasty. :) PS. When I read fiance I thought it was glad I looked at the date.

  10. This looks good. I've been wanting to try one of the oatmeal recipes that I've seen online lately.

  11. I think if you swapped coconut for the oats and gave it a food processor whirl, it would make good n'oatmeal!

  12. 3 Studies SHOW Why Coconut Oil Kills Waist Fat.

    This means that you literally burn fat by eating Coconut Fats (also coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 studies from large medicinal magazines are sure to turn the conventional nutrition world around!
