10 Overnight Oats Recipes For When You’re In A Rush

Overnight oats are the perfect breakfast to prepare when you’re in a rush. Overnight oats don’t require any cooking, so you’ll be waking up and simply grabbing them out of your fridge. Full of protein, the basis of overnight oats typically consists of milk, the oats themselves, and whatever you want to add on top! Rather than sticking to just the oats, check out these recipe variations that will add a twist to your overnight oats! You can find the exact measurements for every recipe linked in each description.

1. Peanut Butter Banana

If you’re into peanut butter, you’ll love this recipe. All you need to do is grab a bowl and mix up some mashed bananas, almond milk, and yogurt. You’ll then stir in your cinnamon, oats, chia seeds, and peanut butter. Let it sit in the fridge overnight, then divide your mixture among two mason jars. You can add some extra bananas and peanut butter if you’d like, but after this, you’ve got peanut butter banana oats!


2. Cinnamon Roll

These cinnamon roll overnight oats will have you feeling like you’re eating a healthy, delicious dessert. You can use any type of milk you want, but this recipe in particular uses cashew milk. Mix together Greek yogurt, cashew milk, and vanilla extract in a bowl. After this, you’re gonna add your oats, chia seeds, brown sugar, and cinnamon. After mixing all the ingredients together, you can either portion them into mason jars or put them in a large container and let them sit in the fridge overnight. Grab them out of the fridge the next morning, and you’ve got a meal!

3. Apple Pie

My favorite thing about overnight oats is the fact that you can really make them your own. With any recipe on this list, you can either add in ingredients or take out the parts you don’t want. With these apple pie overnight oats, there are many different ways you can craft it! First, you’re gonna dice an apple. In a bowl, mix together your oats, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, and flax seeds. You’ll then add your diced apple, maple syrup, and milk of choice. Put them in the fridge overnight, then take them out and enjoy! You can add even more toppings to these oats if you’d like.


4. Cookie Dough

These cookie dough overnight oats are no exception to the delicious, healthy dessert/breakfast variations on the list. For this recipe, you’re going to mix together oats, chia seeds, maple syrup, protein powder (for that extra boost), and almond milk (or any milk of your choice). Ration the oats into jars, then pack the lids on tight and leave them overnight. When you take them out in the morning, add chocolate chips and cashew butter. You can add some more syrup on top, or eat the oats as they are. This is a delicious breakfast that will leave you feeling full until lunch!


5. Blueberry Muffin

Blueberry muffins are amazing on their own, so why not try making an overnight oats recipe with similar ingredients? In a jar, you’re going to combine oats, the milk of your choice, cashew (or almond) butter, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and ground flax (if you want that extra fiber). Stir these ingredients together, then add your blueberries to the mix. Cover your jar and store it in the fridge overnight, then take them out the next morning and enjoy!

Place your jar in the fridge with a lid on top, take it out in the morning, and add your chocolate chips! This is really all you need for this amazing recipe.


7. Strawberries And Cream

This next recipe is really simple and doesn’t involve anything fancy.
