Overnight Oats Four Ways


Make this satisfying, high fiber, high protein breakfast once, in only about 5 minutes, and enjoy it for 4 meals! The base recipe stays the same, and the additions can be modified to create just about any flavor you like. Start with these, and then experiment using the same proportions with other ingredients. 

The recipe below shows the total amount of ingredients you'll need to make FOUR servings of overnight oats.

You'll divide the ingredients evenly across 4 dishes with lids before covering and refrigerating. 


Serves 4



2 cups Old Fashioned Rolled Oats (divided evenly among 4 dishes)

2 Tablespoons Chia Seeds (divided evenly among 4 dishes)

1/4 tsp sea salt (1 pinch each in 4 dishes)

2 cups total Plain Greek Yogurt or Plant-based Yogurt or Plant-based Milk of choice (divided evenly among 4 dishes)

2-4 cups total Filtered Water (divided evenly among 4 dishes)

  • Cinnamon Roll: IN EACH DISH - Use 1 serving Vanilla protein powder, add 1/2 - 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon, a dash of nutmeg and a dash of ground cloves. Top with nuts of choice.
  • Chocolate Peanut Butter: IN EACH DISH -Use 1/2 serving of Chocolate Protein Powder, add 2 TB Peanut Butter Powder and 1 TB mini chocolate chips. 
  • Vanilla Almond: IN EACH DISH - Use Vanilla Protein Powder, add 2 TB sliced almonds, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, and a pinch of sea salt.
  • Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip: IN EACH DISH - Use Salted Caramel Protein powder, add 1 TB mini chocolate chips.












Place 4 bowls with lids on the counter.

Add ingredients to each bowl, in this order: 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 TB chia seeds, 1 serving protein powder, dash of salt, any dry spices and seasonings. 

Mix all dry ingredients together in each bowl.

Then add 1/2 cup plain yogurt or unsweetened plant based milk or plant based yogurt, and 1/2 cup to 1 cup water to each bowl. The more water you use, the thinner your mixture will be when you're ready to eat. I tend to use more water so it's a looser texture. 

Stir carefully until the whole mixture is well combined.​

Cover the dishes and refrigerate for at least 8 hours.

When ready to serve, add berries or cut fruit, chopped nuts, or additional spices.


Enjoy within 3 days.
