3 Overnight Oatmeal Recipes to Try This Summer

Hi there! For me, summer is a great time to try new recipes and make a mental note to implement them in my routine for the rest of the year. So I thought that I would try out a few new overnight oatmeal recipes. Overnight Oatmeal is just what it sounds like- oatmeal made overnight by soaking the oats in milk. This means that it’s the perfect make-ahead option for busy mornings. If you have something against oatmeal, don’t worry. The texture of these oats is almost completely different than that of regular oatmeal, and there’s a lot more flavour. I used to have peanut butter banana overnight oatmeal for breakfast every morning- and honestly, I don’t know why I stopped. When something is this delicious and easy to make, how can you go wrong? Here are three of my favourite overnight oatmeal recipes.

  1. Peanut Butter Banana

Yes, PB and Banana strikes again! This is probably my favourite overnight oatmeal recipe of all time. However, if you’re not into the whole peanut butter thing, you can always use Homemade Almond Butter as a replacement, or just leave the nut butter out altogether. Anyway you make it, this recipe is a winner. Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup milk of your choice
  • 1/2 a banana, mashed
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbs peanut (or any nut) butter, plus additional for garnish

Directions:

  1. Mash the Banana in a small bowl.
  2. Mix in the nut butter until combined.
  3. Stir in all of the other ingredients.
  4. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  5. Uncover in the morning, top with additional nut butter, and enjoy!

2. Stone Fruit Crumble

A stone fruit is a fruit that has a pit in it, so cherries, peaches, nectarines and plums all count. I used plums in my oatmeal, but feel free to use any stone fruit you like.

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup milk of your choice
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 a stone fruit, sliced thinly

Directions:

  1. Mix all of the ingredients above in a small bowl except for the stone fruit until combined.
  2. Place the sliced stone fruit on top of the mixture.
  3. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill overnight.
  4. Remove the wrap in the morning and enjoy!

3. Double Chocolate

This is for all you chocolate lovers out there! Which I’m pretty sure is all of us. This recipe has chocolate in the actual oatmeal itself, and if you want you can top it with some chocolate chips for extra chocolateyness (which should be a word so I’m making it one).

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup milk of your choice
  • 1 1/2 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 a banana, mashed
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • Chocolate chips or nut butter for topping

Directions:

  1. Mash the banana in a small bowl.
  2. Mix in all of the other ingredients except for the garnish.
  3. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge overnight.
  4. Uncover, top with your choice of garnish, and enjoy.
