- ½ cup (64 g) rolled oats
- ⅔ cup (150 ml) unsweetened milk (dairy or nondairy)
- 1 tsp (5 g) culinary grade matcha; sifted (less for a lighter flavor)
- 1 tsp (5 g) chia seeds
- 1 tsp (5 g) honey (or maple syrup; more or less depending on preference)
- A pinch of sea salt
- A pinch of cinnamon (optional)
- One 16 oz glass jar with lid
- ¼ cup (32 g) fresh or dried fruit of your choice
- ¼ cup (32 g) pine nuts (or any nut of your choice)
- ¼ cup (32 g) coconut chips
- A pinch of bee pollen
- More honey, or maple syrup to taste
Stir all ingredients together in glass jar. Mix well.
Close the lid tightly and refrigerate for at least 6 hours—preferably overnight.
In the morning, remove from refrigerator, stir and add your favorite toppings. Serve immediately.
Yields: 1 serving.
I use unsweetened almond milk for this recipe.
You can either add toppings along with the rest of the ingredients (the night before), or just before you eat the oats in the morning. I prefer to add toppings in the morning so that the fruit, nuts, and coconut chips are fresh instead of soggy. Also, when the weather is cold, you can microwave the oats for 10-15 seconds to warm it up. In that case, definitely add the toppings after the oats are heated.

When I worked full time, I loved making overnight oats for busy days. Preparing oats the night before became a ritual that helped me to relax. And the next morning, I had a delicious breakfast ready to grab-and-go!
I love overnight oats because I can customize the ingredients. I can change them to fruits that are in season or whatever I have at home. If you want more ideas, check out these recipes for overnight oats.
