Mix well and leave it in the fridge for a night.

In the morning, dice some crunchy apple and mix in the overnight oats. You may add some honey and more dried fruits too. I always prepare this Apple and Cinnamon Overnight Oats for my husband in the summer. He would bring it to the office in the morning with a jar.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

Get 1 tbsp of natural peanut butter and mix with 1/4 tsp of pure vanilla extract.

Add a bit of coconut milk and mix well.

Add 1 tbsp of organic cocoa and mix again. Add the rest of the coconut milk gradually and keep stirring until mixed in all the milk.



Then add the rolled oats and dark chocolate chips in.

Mix everything together and put the oats in the fridge overnight.

The next morning, put some sliced banana, chopped roasted almonds and dark chocolate chips on top.

Then drizzle a bit of pure honey. Done!

Mixed Fruits Overnight Oats

Then add 1/4 tsp of pure vanilla extract.

Mix well and put the oats in the fridge for a night.

The next morning, put some banana cubs in a glass or jar. Then add a layer of overnight oats.

Then add another layer of banana cubs.

You could do a few layers. I normally do 2 layers. Then add one heap table spoon of Greek yogurt.

Then put some blue berries and raspberries on top of the yogurt. Drizzle some pure honey on top at the end. Done!

We normally make overnight oats over the summer. Kids like them because they are like healthy desserts. Hope you and your family would like these recipes too.

Cooking Tips

  • You can put the oats in the jars and keep them in the fridge. I keep it in the bowl for easy styling only.
  • Don’t need to buy nice jars. Just use spaghetti source jars, jam jars, or other old bottles like those I used.
  • You can change the recipes to vegan by using coconut yogurt and vegan chocolate.
  • Make sure you use rolled oats not instant oats. Rolled oats taste much better.
