How to Make Overnight Oats

I always use the same formula when making overnight oats: 1 cup oats, 1 cup milk, 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon chia seeds. It is optional to add a couple of tablespoons of protein powder for an extra boost of protein and of course, add in whatever ingredients you need to make it a certain flavor such as fruit, cream cheese, peanut butter and sweeteners.

Overnight oats are best prepped the night before or at least two hours before you plan to eat them. This is so that the oats can soak up the liquid and so the chia seeds can swell up making a delicious, thick and creamy breakfast. Lemon cheesecake overnight oats are amazing for meal prep and I typically prep at least two days at a time for the kids and I. They last all week in the fridge and taste just as fresh when you eat them as when you make them.

I love a tart lemon flavor so I used lots of lemon juice and lemon zest on these overnight oats but if you like them sweeter, feel free to add more honey to your liking. If you want, you can even add in some fresh or frozen blueberries for extra deliciousness and top with graham cracker crumbs. Yum!
