  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 4 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 4 oz fresh strawberry quartered, optional
  • 4 oz fresh blueberries optional
  • 4 oz walnuts roughly chopped, optional


  • In a large bowl, add milk, Greek yogurt, and honey. Whisk well to combine.
  • Divide equal amounts of old-fashioned rolled oats, chia seeds, and cinnamon powder into 4 jars or airtight containers. Add equal parts of the milk mixture and mix everything to combine. Put the lid on and refrigerate for 8 hours (or at least 4 hours if you’re in a hurry/taking with you for lunch).
  • The next morning, add chopped walnuts and fresh berries to serve.


  • Feel free to use any other types of milk, nuts, and fruit you like. Tailor the recipe to your preferences.
  • Be sure not to add fresh fruits and nuts to the oats from the beginning. The fruits won’t be fresh anymore and the nuts will lose their crunchiness from being soaked in liquid. So add them only when you’re ready to eat.
  • You can make a big batch of overnight oats to eat throughout the week. They can last up to 5 days in the fridge provided that you separate the oats and the toppings.
