Before I started working from home, overnight oats were my go-to breakfast of choice for YEARS! They’re so quick to prepare the night before and then you have a delicious, balanced meal to grab from your fridge in the morning.

I love switching up the flavour combinations to prevent boredom, so today I’m sharing 2 versions of overnight oats with raspberries. Feel free to make one or the other, or perhaps prep both so you can have 2 different options during the week!

As a dietitian, I’m happy to share that this recipe is PACKED with fiber – oats, raspberries, and chia seeds are all incredible sources. If you’re looking to get more gut-friendly fiber in, this one is for you 🙂

Full ingredient measurements and detailed instructions are located in the recipe card at the bottom of this post!

Recipe Modifications & Ingredient Swaps

  1. For a vegan option, simply swap the greek yogurt with a plain vegan yogurt. Choose one that’s thick and creamy, and low on added sugars. Do note that this will lower the protein content of this recipe.
  2. I used unsweetened almond milk for this recipe, but feel free to use any milk or plant-based milk alternative that you enjoy!
  3. While oats are naturally gluten-free, if you’re on a strict gluten-free diet you will need to ensure that you use certified gluten-free oats for this recipe.

Additional Topping Ideas

  1. This recipe tastes so good with a scoop of almond or peanut butter. This is a great addition if you want to add a bit more healthy fat and protein to this meal.
  2. These would both taste amazing with additional fruit toppings, like sliced bananas or strawberries.
  3. Shredded coconut flakes would work great on both, too!

How Long Do Overnight Oats Keep?

Overnight oats will keep for 4-5 days in an airtight container in the fridge.

This makes them a perfect breakfast meal prep option – just make a large batch, and you have a healthy breakfast ready for the week!

Raspberry Nutrition Benefits

Raspberries are high in dietary fiber, packing in about 8 grams of fiber in a 1 cup serving.

This red berry is also a source of many micronutrients, including:

  • vitamin C (1 cup provides more than half of the daily recommended intake!)
  • manganese
  • vitamin K
  • vitamin E
  • iron
  • magnesium
  • potassium

Like other berries, raspberries are rich in antioxidants that help your body’s cells fight oxidative stress.

Oat Nutrition Benefits

Rolled oats are an excellent source of soluble fibre, which helps to slow digestion, lower cholesterol, improve blood sugar control, regulate bowel movements, and promote the growth of good gut bacteria.

Oats are also an excellent source of micronutrients, like:

  • manganese
  • phosphorus
  • magnesium
  • copper
  • iron
  • zinc
  • B-vitamins

On the macronutrient side, oats are a source of complex carbohydrates and plant-based protein!

Notes

*CONSISTENCY OF OATS: I know we all have our personal preferences here – some of us like really thick oats, and others a more thin consistency! If you find that the oats are too thick for your liking, simply add a splash more milk. If they are a bit too thin, stir in another tablespoon or so of oats until your desired consistency is reached 🙂
*LEFTOVERS/MAKE AHEAD:
  • Overnight oats will keep for 4-5 days in an airtight container in the fridge.
  • This makes them a perfect breakfast meal prep option – just make a large batch, and you have a healthy breakfast ready for the week!
 
*RECIPE MODIFICATIONS & INGREDIENT SWAPS:
  • For a vegan option of the lemon yogurt flavour, simply swap the greek yogurt with a plain vegan greek-style yogurt. Choose one that’s thick and creamy, and low on added sugars. Do note that this will lower the protein content of this recipe, but you could combat this by using soy milk!
  • I used unsweetened almond milk for this recipe, but feel free to use any milk or plant-based milk alternative that you enjoy.
  • While oats are naturally gluten-free, if you’re on a strict gluten-free diet you will need to ensure that you use certified gluten-free oats for this recipe.
  • These would both taste amazing with additional fruit toppings, like sliced bananas or strawberries.
  • Shredded coconut flakes would be another lovely topping addition!
  • The nut butter can be left out, if desired. That said, it tastes lovely and adds some extra protein and healthy fat to make this breakfast even more satisfying!
