ingredients for overnight oats

These are the ingredients you’ll need to make this overnight oats recipe:

    Rolled oats – Any type of oats will do, even quick or instant oats. Use gluten-free if needed. If you can’t eat gluten-free oats either, use quinoa flakes instead (I’ve never made this recipe using them, though, so you may need to add more or less milk).
    Chia seeds – You can omit the chia seeds if you want, but I add them because of their amazing health benefits, and also because I love the texture of my overnight oats when I add them.
    Maple syrup – Use any sweetener you have on hand. Dates and sliced banana are also a good choice if you want a healthier alternative.
    Vanilla extract – This ingredient is optional. However, if you have some vanilla extract on hand, please use it because your chia pudding will taste even better.
    Milk – Any type of milk is okay. I prefer to use any unsweetened plant milk and then I add a sweetener of my choice, but it’s up to you.

how to make overnight oats

They’re really easy to make, just add all the ingredients (except the toppings) to a mason jar, stir, cover and refrigerate overnight (or for at least 4 hours). That’s all!

Stir before serving and feel free to add more milk if you want. Then add your favorite toppings. I’ve been into almond butter and fresh blueberries lately, but the alternatives are endless.
