Overnight Oats - 3 Ingredient Recipe:

  • 40 g Oats
  • 50 g Yoghurt
  • 100 ml Milk

Peanut and Banana Flavour:

  • 1 Small Banana
  • 1 tbsp Peanut butter
  • 1 tsp Honey

Nutella Berry Flavour:

  • 4 tbsp Mixed berries
  • 1 tbsp Nutella

Carrot Cake Flavour:

  • 1 Small Carrot Peeled and grated
  • 1 tsp Walnuts
  • 1 tsp Raisins
  • 1/2 tsp Mixed spice
  • 1 tsp Maple syrup

Apple Pie Flavour:

  • 1 Small Apple Cut into chunks or grates
  • 1/2 tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Honey

Chocolate Orange:

  • 1 tsp Cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp Orange extract
  • 1 tsp Chocolate chips
  • 1 Small Orange/satsuma Peeled and broken into segments


To make the Basic Overnight Oats:

  1. Mix all of the ingredients together and store in the fridge overnight.

  2. Stir well before serving.

To add flavours:

  1. Add your additional ingredients either the night before or in the morning when ready to eat.

    I tend to add in the morning, as the oats will last up to 3 days without the toppings.

    If you want to save time, and plan to eat after just one night, adding the night before is fine.
