- 1 cup Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
- 1 cup (vanilla or plain) Yogurt
- 1 cup Milk (I use Almond Milk)
- 1 Tablespoon Ground Flaxseeds
- 1 Tablespoon Chia Seeds
- 0.25 cup Raisins
- 0.25 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
Yogurt and milk soaked oats with hints of sweetness from raisin and coconut!
When I remember to make soaked oats the night before, my mornings always start off on a positive note.
The trick to creamy oats is mixing yogurt and milk. You can use any kind but I really like vanilla flavored yogurt and my homemade almond milk. That way I don’t have to add any additional sweetener like maple syrup or honey.
For added texture and nutritional benefits, I love adding flax and chia seeds. Sunflower and pumpkin seeds are also a great addition.
For a bright and fresh fruit aspect, I top my soaked oats with berries. Both fresh or frozen then thawed work well!
Mix Everything in A Large Bowl
Start by adding the yogurt and milk to your bowl and give it a quick whisk.
Next, add the oats, flax and chia seeds, raisins and the shredded coconut.
Mix well then transfer the mixture to 1 large or 2 smaller jars.
Eat immediately or allow to soak overnight in the refrigerator.
I recommend adding another 2-3 tablespoons if milk to the mixture in the morning to loosen it up a bit then top with your favorite berries or fruit!
