Vanilla honey overnight oats is such a delicious quick healthy breakfast. Top with your choice of nuts, fruit or granola for the perfect start to your day!
These tasty and easy vanilla honey overnight oats are just what you need as a healthy grab-and-go breakfast for when you know you’re going to be short of time in the morning.
Now I know folks that overnight oats are typically served chilled, straight from the refrigerator, and are more suitable for warmer months of the year, but I just couldn’t wait until next summer to share these with you.
Besides, why just have them in warmer weather? When you can enjoy overnight oats recipes all year round!
Or maybe I’m just thinking about warmer weather and our next MAJOR adventure? (More below! 🙂 )
Vanilla and honey are the perfect combination in this overnight oats recipe. Adding in the chia seeds helps to make a thicker, creamier more pudding-like texture and also gives the recipe even more fibre.
In fact just one serving of this amazing breakfast provides you with nearly half of your recommended daily fibre!
Vanilla Honey Overnight Oats Serving Suggestions
I love that this recipe is so easy to customise too. Here’s some alternative serving suggestions for you to make it yours!
- Make it vegan: Use plant-based milk, plant-based yogurt, and maple syrup instead of honey.
- Make it gluten-free: Use gluten-free oats.
- Like it sweeter?: Add your own personal choice of sweetener if required or just add more honey!
- Like some fruit in your breakfast?: Add some sultanas or golden raisins with the oats.
- Make it more creamier?: Stir in a little more no fat Greek yogurt.
There are so many delicious possibilities. How would you make this your own? (Feel free to let everyone know in the comments below!)
- 50 g Oats
- 1 tbsp Chia Seeds
- 120 ml Skimmed Milk
- 4 tbsp No Fat Greek Yogurt
- ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
- ½ tsp Runny Honey
Stir together all ingredients in a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate or spoon into a small container with a tight fitting lid. Refrigerate overnight or up to 2 days. Top with additional yogurt, nuts, fruit or granola before serving.
Overnight oats will generally keep for up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
Well Folks, I’ve been hinting at it for the last few weeks and now finally Lynne and I went and booked our next trip of a lifetime on Saturday.
In September 2018, we’re climbing this :-
What a perfect way for us to celebrate 5 years being married and 5 years since we started to travel the world together. 🙂
Ever since I took this picture of Kilimanjaro when we were flying home from Zanzibar and were lucky enough to fly over it, it’s been on my mind. And you know what they say about things happening when you really put your mind to it? And of course we had to save hard for it too. But it’ll be so worth it and we’re both so excited about it already!
Anyway, before I get carried away, tomorrow is the penultimate post of our walk along the Hadrian’s Wall Path, Day 4 Greenhead to Carlisle and on Thursday there’s a pre-Christmas festive healthy cookie recipe. I thought I’d get started on festive recipes because I usually forget and end up posting them too close to Christmas for anyone to make. 😆
So, until tomorrow….. 🙂
