Warmer months are here, and you know what that means in my world? 

It means less hot oatmeal and more cooler-temped foods first thing in the morning.

Avocado toast.
Hard-boiled eggs.

And of course overnight oats right outta the fridge.

Yes, I base what I eat off of the weather…

…because I am kinda like an 82 year-old grandma.


But you know what? I get really sick of the same flavors day in and day out. 

So I wanted to give you some options just like I’ve done for myself. Eat overnight oats every single day, but with these instructions, you can make them all a different flavor… most likely with ingredients you have on hand right now!

Overnight Oats 4 Ways

Holly Waterfall
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup ground flax
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup agave (or maple syrup/brown rice syrup/honey)
  • 2 cups almond milk

For PB Chocolate

  • 1 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp natural peanut butter

For Apple Cinnamon

  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 apple

For Pumpkin Chocolate Chip

  • 1/3 cup pureed pumpkin
  • 2 Tbsp mini dairy-free chocolate chips

For Very Berry

  • 1 Tbsp strawberry (or any berry) jam
  • 3/4 cup mix berries


  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine oats, flax, chia, agave (or other liquid sweetener), and almond milk.
  • At this point, you can choose to make all the same flavor, and in that case, you would just multiply the flavor ingredients by 4 and add right into the bowl.
  • Or if you want to make all 4 flavors, divide into 4 separate smaller bowls or jars. Add the cocoa powder, cinnamon, pumpkin, and jam each into separate jars. Then layer into a jar with remaining add-in.
  • Let cool in fridge for at least an hour and up to 4 days.
  • Eat cold or microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute to enjoy warmer.


Each add-in measurement is for 1 serving. If you are wanting to make the entire 4-serving recipe one flavor, just multiply the add-in measurement by 4
These oats are generally served cold and uncooked. If you would like to serve them warm, feel free to pop in the microwave for a minute or so before serving.

      1. Great ideas. However, I tried making steel cut oats overnight without cooking first. After three days, I finally three them out. My preferred way of cooking steel cut oats overnight is in a water bath in my crockpot. I plan on using these great ideas!

    1. Correct, overnight oats are generally served cold and uncooked, but if you’d prefer to eat them warm, feel free to pop them in the microwave for a minute or two.
