Easy Overnight Oats recipe – a healthy breakfast recipe that serves as a base for countless toppings and flavor combinations! With an option in the notes section below that tells you how to turn this single serving into a 4-Day Meal Prep.



(for one serving)

  • ½ c rolled oats
  • ¼ c plain unsweetened Greek yogurt*
  • ½ c unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbs coconut nectar**
  • pinch of cinnamon



  1. MIX ALL INGREDIENTS: Add rolled oats, yogurt, almond milk, vanilla extract, coconut nectar, and cinnamon to a lidded container. Mix until well combined, seal and store in the fridge. Let oats soak overnight and enjoy the next day. Will keep for up to a week in the fridge. You can either add toppings fresh each morning or you can add them ahead of time for easy grab-n-go breakfasts and snacks.


*I used full-fat Greek Yogurt for the best taste and a balance of healthy fats

**or sweetener of choice – like honey, maple syrup, agave nectar, or liquid stevia.
