Chunky Monkey Overnight Oats

March 25, 2013

Can we talk favorite flavor combinations…ever?

For me, I think it would have to be peanut butter, banana, and chocolate. I could eat this combination any which way for days and never be tired of it.

I’m always trying to find new ways to mix these three flavors together. Sometimes I feel kinda like Bubba and his shrimp.

My latest combination? Yogurt and oats.

You know that if you put yogurt, oats, and some milk together, with your other favorite flavors, together in a jar and let it sit in the fridge overnight that you’ll have one heckuva breakfast in the morning? The oats get so soft and the whole brekkie jar turns so thick and creamy. It’s absolute heaven!

…and I think I’ve created a new obsession.

How could I have not thought of peanut butter, banana, and chocolate oats before? My mornings just got a whole lot better!!

This looks awesome!! Do you think i could substitute almond milk with regular milk?

Yes in most recipes you can put whatever milk you prefer. For example, I do my oats with either soy, regular or coconut based milk and they are all delicious 🙂

Love this flavor combination, especially for breakfast!! I just bought a jar of Chocolate Peanut Butter, so I might try this recipe with that. 🙂

I was doing some googling and your recipe came up. This looks awesome! Just wondering, how big is the Chobani container or yogurt to use?

It’s the little regular, single serving ones. I think they’re close to a cup?

I can’t believe I haven’t commented here yet- your recipe was my first experience with refrigerator oats when I tried them a few months ago. It’s like I’m in a whole new world! (ok, that’s a slight exaggeration) These are fantastic & made me look for other similar recipes. Thank you so much for sharing!

Is there anything I could substitute for the yogurt?

Reply

25 Alissa February 11, 2014 at 3:32 pm

I’ve tried cottage cheese in the past! It works well, too.

I basically always have eggs for breakfast, but my stove top is malfunctioning 🙁 My mind thought “OVERNIGHT OATS!” When I went looking for inspiration, I stumbled upon your recipe here. It looks so glorious! Definitely making now 🙂

I just tried this combo tonight because I happened to have all the ingredients on hand. I don’t know what the end result will be in the morning, but I had a small taste and was blown away by how well everything mixes together. Big ups for a killer recipe!

YAY! Hope you like it even more in the morning!

What kind of oats did you use? Can this be made with quick oats?

Reply

30 Steph April 27, 2014 at 6:41 am

I used old fashioned, I think you could use quick cooking, they just might breakdown more

This looks delicious!! Can I substitute the rolled oats for steel cut oats?

Reply

32 Steph May 12, 2014 at 6:38 am

I think steel cut oats would work great!!

Yum! Anyone know how many grams of yoghurt this is? Can’t find chobani here.

WOW! I’ve eaten the Blueberry-Banana version (#1) the last 2 days in a row. I LOVE having breakfast already made and waiting for me when I stagger down for my morning coffee. It really doesn’t get much healthier than this (not all the recipes are as simple as that first one) and it gets really decadent when I toss in a small handful of walnuts and a drizzle of maple syrup. I will be trying most of these overnight oatmeal variations!

Saw this and it looks awesome but i hate yogurt. Do you have any substitutions?

Reply

39 Blake October 30, 2014 at 7:47 pm

Does it has to be greek yogurt? Can it be regular yogurt?

Reply

40 Steph October 30, 2014 at 7:49 pm

It can totally be regular! Whatever kind of yogurt you like

Anyone know the nutrition for this recipe?

Reply

43 Ana Abularach June 24, 2016 at 12:22 pm

Hello, do you know how much time would this recipe last stored in the fridge without getting rotten? Is it possible for me to prepare like ten days ahead and have a selection in the fridge for my kiddos?
Thank you for your gentle reply, Ana.

Reply

44 Steph June 24, 2016 at 4:17 pm

Hi Ana! I’m not exactly sure how long it would last in the fridge. I would think it would be best within 2-3 days, but I don’t know about 10 days. I’ve never let it sit that long, so I just can’t say.

Looks delicious!! Just wondering if you use regular almond milk or unsweetened.
