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!
