Why You'll Want these Raspberry Overnight Oats
- They are delicious! If you are a fan of oatmeal in general, you will love the taste of these overnight oats.
- They're so easy to make- literally mix 6 ingredients together in a bowl and toss in some fruit? Certainly not rocket science over here.
- Overnight oats are healthy. Super healthy as a matter of fact! They are full of nutrients and fiber that keep you fuller for longer. They also have a good bit of protein and are overall low in fat.
- Raspberries are amazing! Need I say more? If your feelings are 'meh' about raspberries, switch these out for fresh strawberries, blackberries, or blueberries.
- You can make this recipe gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan by swapping products!
Here are some notes on a few ingredients- please see the full ingredient list in the recipe card below!
- old-fashioned oats- Old-fashioned oats (or rolled oats) are what you're gonna want to use here. They soak up all the liquid overnight but still keep their oat form so that they don't turn into mush like you sometimes get when cooking oatmeal. Use gluten-free rolled oats to make this recipe gluten-free.
- greek yogurt- An amazing source of protein, I used non-fat or low-fat greek yogurt and typically go for plain or vanilla flavored, but feel free to use whatever yogurt you love.
- chia seeds- These add a lot of nutrients and also make the oats extra creamy after soaking up the liquid overnight! Don't skip these!
- raspberries- They are the star of the show, these juicy and sweet berries add a bit of freshness to your morning oats.
Step by Step Instructions
Step 1: Combine the oats, milk, yogurt, chia seeds, and honey/maple syrup (if using) in a bowl.
Step 2: Toss your raspberries in a jar and use a fork to smash them. You can leave bigger chunks or mash until they're smooth. *if you're not going to eat the oats the next morning, I would wait to add the raspberries so they don't go bad!
Step 3: Pour oats over top and cover with a lid. Place in the fridge for at least 8 hours, preferably overnight. In the morning, give it a good mix before digging in, and you can top it with fresh raspberries and dark chocolate chips.
Frequently Asked Questions
If you are going to eat these overnight oats in the morning, then yes it's okay to put the raspberries in first. I wouldn't suggest letting them sit for more than a day though because the raspberries will start to get too mushy. If you are making multiple batches of overnight oats for the week, I would add the raspberries when ready to eat.
Not at all! Overnight oats are a great breakfast option and are full of nutrients and fiber, which will keep you fuller for longer. If you want more protein with your breakfast, try adding some protein powder- like my protein overnight oats recipe.
Most people eat their oats cold since they soak overnight in the fridge. They taste great cold, but if you prefer them to be warm you can heat them in the microwave (without the raspberries, add those after warming).
Tips and Tricks
- I use these mason jars for easy storage & extra points for being cute. I also love weck jars or simple glass tupperware containers.
- Add extra toppings that you enjoy- I added extra raspberries and mini dark chocolate chips. You could also add nut butter, dried fruit, seeds, granola, fresh fruits, and spices (like cinnamon).
- If you want to add protein powder-this brand of protein powder is my current favorite for things like smoothies and overnight oats.
Storing & Freezing
Overnight oats can be stored in the fridge for up to 1 week. Add raspberries in the morning if you aren't planning on eating the oats right away. If your oats seem to be dry (from sitting and soaking up all the liquid) just add a splash of milk and make sure to mix before eating.
