Overnight Oats

Overnight Oats approved by Nicole Porter Wellness

If you’re looking for a way to save time, but get in a healthy breakfast, overnight oats are one way to go. Since I only recommend people consume 1 serving of dairy per day (max), I’d suggest swapping out the milk and/or Greek yogurt for a non-dairy version. Be sure to choose dairy that is free or hormones and antibiotics.

Also, when looking at any meal or snack, ask yourself ‘Is this the most nutritious version it can be?’ In this case, you could add flax seeds, nuts, seeds, additional fruit, or other spices like nutmeg, cardamom or allspice.


  • 1/3 cup milk (nut or seed milk)
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp chia seeds
  • 2 tsp honey (raw, unpasteurized)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup fresh, dark berries (blue, black, raspberry, cherry)


  • Combine milk, oats, Greek yogurt, chia seeds, honey, and cinnamon in a 1/2-pint jar with a lid; cover and shake until combined. Remove lid and fold in blueberries. Cover jar with lid.
  • Refrigerate oatmeal, 8 hours to overnight
