Overnight Oats Recipes

When making your own overnight oats, you'll face a number of questions:

  • What type of oats to use (rolled oats, steel cut oats, or quick/instant oats)?
  • What ingredients are best and how much?
  • What's the difference between oatmeal and overnight oats?

These recipes will answer these questions and instruct you how to make your own. 


Overnight Oats Recipe #1 - Chocolate Chia Surprise

Serves 4

The ingredients you will need:

  • two very ripe bananas
  • 4 tbsp of cacao powder
  • 4 tbsp of raw honey or coconut sugar
  • 3 cups of milk or milk alternative (almond milk, for example)
  • 1 cup of rolled oats
    Note: Steel cut oats are tasty, but do not create the best consistency for overnight oats. We recommend using rolled oats. Instant oats (also called "quick oats") will work, but we recommend rolled oats.
  • 6 tbsp chia seeds


  1. In one bowl, mix the banana, the cacao powder, and the sweetener. Make sure to mix everything really good so that it becomes a smooth paste. 
  2. Mix in the oats and chia seeds.
  3. Mix in the milk.
  4. Stir continuously until it is well-mixed.
  5. Put it in the fridge overnight.



Overnight Oats Recipe #2 - Green Sunrise

Serves 2

The ingredients you will need:

  1. 2 cups of spinach (kale can be used instead)
  2. 2 very ripe bananas (the riper it is the sweeter it will be)
  3. 3 tbsp of chia seeds
  4. 2 cups of milk or milk alternative
  5. ⅔ cup of rolled oats (or instant/quick oats if you prefer)


  1. Using a blender, blend the spinach (or kale), bananas, chia seeds, and milk.
  2. Add oats to a bowl.
  3. Pour contents from the blender on top of the oats.
  4. Place the bowl with the oats and blended smoothie in the fridge and leave overnight.
  5. In the morning, stir the oatmeal together and enjoy cold. Add to shaker cup to enjoy on-the-go.
