Super-simple and super-delicious! There are so many ways to make overnight oats. Here are some of my favorite ways to enjoy it.



  • 1 cup oats, gluten-free if needed (see note)

  • 1 cup milk or pareve (plant-based) milk of your choice

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 2 teaspoons sugar or 1 packet sweetener

Orange-Strawberry Compote

  • 1 pound (450 grams) frozen strawberries

  • 1/2 cup orange juice

  • 3 tablespoons sugar or 1 packet sweetener


Prepare the Oats and Compote


For the compote: Place the strawberries, orange juice, and sugar or sweetener into a small pot and bring to a boil. Lower heat immediately and let cook for two more minutes. Add the dissolved cornstarch and mix well. Cook for two more minutes and then remove from heat. Let cool, stirring occasionally.


Place the oats and your choice of milk into a container or glass jar. Stir in salt, sugar, and cinnamon, then add a few tablespoons of orange-strawberry compote and mix well. Place the jar in the fridge for at least eight hours.


When ready to eat, top with hazelnut or almond butter and some coconut chips, or any other toppings of your choice.


Add one tablespoon chia seeds to the oats for a healthy boost. Premade overnight oats with chia seed will stay good in the fridge for up to a week.


I tried this recipe with three different types of oats to see which would work best: quick-cooking oats, old-fashioned rolled oats, and quick-cooking steel-cut oats (smaller than regular steel-cut oats). Quick-cooking oats yielded the smoothest result, the old-fashioned oats were the chewiest, and the quick-cooking steel-cut oats were chewy but with smaller pieces. I also tried different types of milk. including coconut, almond, soy, and cow’s milk. I personally liked plain old cow’s milk the best, but you’ll have to try it for yourself to see which is your favorite.
