Before we get into the list, there is a base recipes that all the other recipes build off of. This base is 1 cup of oats, 1-1.5 cups of liquid (almond milk, soy milk, yogurt) and 1 teaspoon of a sweetener. You can adjust these amounts to your own liking but just to get started, there you are!

This first recipe is for all my Reese’s lovers out there! When you finished with the base, add in 2 tablespoons of peanut butter and either a tablespoon of chocolate sauce or throw in some chocolate pieces, or do both I will not judge you.
2. Apple Pie
This next of our overnight quick oats recipes is a lot simpler than it sounds. For the apple pie overnight oats, you’ll just need to add 1 teaspoon of maple syrup, 1/3 of a diced apple and 1 tsp of cinnamon.

This is one of the more simple of the overnight quick oats recipes, because for this one you go ahead with the base recipe and then you just plop some Nutella in the jar with it. Plop as much or as little of it as your heart desires, but once you do then you’ve got yourself some Nutella overnight oats.
4. Peanut Butter and Banana
