Basic overnight oats

From the kitchen of: Rachel Klinkner of Cashton, Wisconsin


1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup plain or Greek yogurt or 1/4 cup more milk
1-2 teaspoons maple syrup or honey, or preferred sweetener
1 teaspoon chia seeds, optional
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional
Pinch of sea salt
Toppings of choice: fruit, nut butter, nuts, seeds, chocolate chips, peanut butter, etc.

Add oats, milk, yogurt, maple syrup, chia seeds, vanilla and sea salt into a jar or storage container with a lid. Stir ingredients together. Place in the fridge overnight. If you’re in a rush, you can shorten the soak time to 2-4 hours. When ready to eat, remove lid and give oats a big stir. If they seem too thick you can add more milk to loosen the mixture. Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy. You can eat the oats straight from the jar or pour into a bowl for serving. Overnight oats should last up to five days in the fridge in a sealed airtight container.
