Kitschen Chaos: Overnight Oats for a very Good Morning!

OMG It's been 3 weeks since I last blogged. I've been so busy learning how to domesticate myself in areas outside of my kitchen and let's just say that I'm still learning. Also, when your primary job is to write, it's sometimes hard to bring yourself to write some more on your free time because you want to do other things. BUT, I promise to be better at updating! Please forgive me!

To make up for my M.I.A-ness, here's a simple recipe for overnight oats. Every time I post this on Instagram (look for me: ericaparedes) I get tweet requests for the recipe. Well, here it is, super duper easy you'll wonder how you didn't innately know it!

BASIC Overnight Oats recipe is as easy as:

1/2 cup uncooked rolled oats
1/3 cup plain yogurt (or flavored if you wanna mix it up a bit)
1/3 cup milk (any kind, I use soy)

Mix all together and put in the fridge before you sleep.
Wake up and mix in the fun stuff like:

Sliced banana, flax seed and peanut butter

Strawberry preserves and speculoos

Dates, honey and almonds

Strawberry, banana and walnut (Put in a cute jar for cuteness sake!)

There's no limit to what you can do with this! Try your own combos and let me know what's good!


  1. Ooh, great ideas! I love overnight oats...I make mine with bananas, peanut butter, slivered almonds, and cranberries. I also make another version with blueberry yogurt, berries, and cranberries :)

  2. I still always look forward to your latest posts no matter how long you've been away. You're that ozzum. And so is this recipe. I feel so dumb for not knowing this. HAHA. Thanks! I'm not such a big fan of honey in my oats for some reason though.

  3. So nostalgic! I remember having that daily when I was an intern in Mackinac. Will try this homemade version.
