  • ¾ cup rolled oats gluten-free if needed
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup optional
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract optional
  • 1 cup milk of your choice I used unsweetened soy milk
  • Almond butter or peanut butter optional
  • Fresh blueberries optional


  • Add all the ingredients into a jar (except the almond or peanut butter and the blueberries), stir, cover, and refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours.
  • Give it a good stir before serving and add more milk if needed.
  • Customize it with any kind of fresh fruit, dried fruits, nuts, seeds, or any other topping like ground cinnamon, cocoa powder, ground ginger, dark chocolate, shredded coconut, or matcha tea.
  • Keep the leftovers in a closed jar in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.


  • You can use any type of oats.
  • If you can’t eat gluten, use gluten-free oats or quinoa flakes instead. If you use quinoa flakes, you may need to adjust the amount of liquid.
  • Omit the syrup if you prefer your overnight oats sugar-free, or use dates or sliced banana instead.
  • Vanilla extract works really well for this recipe.
  • Although chia seeds are optional, I like to incorporate them into my overnight oats because they give them a wonderful texture and consistency.
  • I used soy milk, but this recipe will work with any kind of plant milk. It goes really well with coconut milk.
  • Nutritional info has been calculated without the almond butter and the blueberries.
