6 Overnight Oat Recipes with Fresh Flavors to Try

Different flavors of overnight oats in jars.

Overnight oats are a healthy eating trend you can really dig into. They’re a no-cook, make-ahead breakfast that’s perfect for throwing in your work or gym bag. And pumped with a whopping 25 grams of protein and nearly half your daily fiber, rest assured, you will not be hungry until lunch. You may not even be tempted by sugary cravings in the afternoon—that’s the amazing power of protein! Get ready to set yourself up for healthy eating success for the rest of the day.

If you’re new to the overnight oats game, here’s how to get started. From there, you can level up your morning meal with fun flavors, mix-ins, and toppings. A major bonus: With lots of sweetness from fresh, whole fruit, you can side step sweeteners, like honey and maple syrup (but if you must, go for a light drizzle). Here are six fresh, delicious, and ridiculously easy ways to upgrade your overnight oats.

One Note on Milk

These recipes recommend a one-two punch of Greek yogurt and cow’s milk, because they pack the most protein. But if you don’t do dairy, substitute 1 cup (8 fl oz/250 ml) of your favorite alternative milk. The matcha & tropical fruit variation could be delicious with coconut milk beverage, and the chocolate & cherry variation makes sense with almond milk. But to make sure you’re still getting enough protein, add an extra 10 grams of protein with 100-percent pure protein powder.
