Make-Ahead Breakfast: Overnight Oats

For a quick make-ahead breakfast idea, try these easy overnight oats! When building a satisfying breakfast, I like to think carbohydrates + protein + healthy fats. The combination of oats + yogurt + cashews delivers just that! 

Easy Make-Ahead Breakfast: Overnight Oats Edition

As much as I try to enjoy a slow breakfast, sometimes we just need something quick to honor our hunger and keep it simple. This is my go to combo for overnight oats: breakfast on-the-go! 

Oats + Milk + Yogurt = the BEST overnight oats 

Serves 1 


  • ½ cup rolled oats 
  • ½ cup milk of choice 
  • ⅓ cup yogurt of choice (I used Siggi’s with a touch of honey)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds 
  • ½ banana, sliced or mashed  
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon 
  • 1 tablespoon shredded coconuts 
  • A handful of cashews 


  1. Combine ingredients in a glass jar or tupperware container. Mix together. Secure lid and refrigerate overnight. Enjoy the next morning, directly from the jar for a quick breakfast! 


You can easily change up the toppings in this recipe. Sub cashews for 1-2 tablespoons of your favorite nut butter! Add fresh or frozen blueberries. I like to make 2 servings of this recipe at once to have breakfast set for 2 days! Keeps for 2-3 days in the refrigerator.
