Basic Overnight Oats


The Overnight Oats
3 tbsp oats
1 tbsp chia seeds
0.5-1 tbsp maple syrup
3 tbsp plain thick yoghurt
6 tbsp water


The night before, combine oats, chia seeds, maple syrup, plain thick yogurt, and water in a bowl.

Give it a good stir and let thicken in the fridge overnight (about 8 hours).

In the morning, stir the oats and transfer them to a new bowl.

Top the oats with optional toppings!


– If I know the toppings I will add are sweet, I add 0.5 tbsp maple syrup. If not, I add a little bit more sweetener.
