  • In a bowl or container that can be sealed shut, combine all ingredients and stir well.
  • Close and chill overnight or at least 4 hours.
  • Add a Tablespoon or two more milk if too thick in the morning and eat chilled or warmed up.


  • You can eat your oats chilled or warmed up. I typically prefer mine heated, but this version I enjoy cold from the fridge.
  • If the oatmeal seems too thick in the morning, stir in extra splash of milk before serving.
  • You can add a splash of lemon juice. I went with just the zest and lemon yogurt, but if you love lemon, the more the merrier!
