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!

I make almost the same recipe with raspberries and all the little seeds — but not with yogurt, great idea and I’m definitely going to try it!

I never thought to add flax or chia seeds to oatmeal. I bet I’ll love the texture. Thanks for the recipe!
