I recently posted one of my favourite breakfast recipes for oats with yoghurt, fruit and nuts. This is an even tastier overnight version of my recipe for sugar free oats with yogurt. I’ve made these overnight oats in an airtight jar which ensures freshness and a good mixing of all flavours.
How to make overnight oats in a jar
These sugar free overnight oats in a jar are super easy to prepare. You just put all the ingredients in a jar, put your jar in the fridge in the evening, and enjoy your yummy overnight oats in the morning. I added frozen red fruit, peach, oat flakes, yoghurt and lots of cinnamon. It’s good to stir everything together before closing the jar. Now close your jar, put it in the fridge and enjoy!
Enjoy the deep flavor of your breakfast
You will notice that your overnight oats will have a deeper and fuller taste than normal oats. This is because the night in the fridge has given your ingredients and flavors the chance to mix. This is also true for many other foods, like pasta or cakes, that a night in the fridge will make it taste much better and more intense.
Many options for ingredients
When it comes to the toppings for your oatmeal, you have an infinite number of options. You can choose any kind of fruit, such as red fruit, banana, plum, pear, apple, kiwi or mango. I personally like using frozen red fruit, because it will melt in the fridge and leak onto the rest of the ingredients, thereby spreading its delicious flavor.
It is also a good idea to add nuts and seeds that you might have at hom, such as Brazil nuts, pecans, walnuts, almonds, peanuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds or flax seeds. You can also add nut butters like peanut butter, almond butter or hazelnut butter.
If you need more sweetness, try adding some raisins or dates.
Vegan or gluten-free overnight oats in a jar
It is easy to make a vegan and gluten-free version of this recipe. For vegan oats, instead of yogurt, add your favorite vegan yogurt, or plant-based milk, such as soy yogurt or almond milk. The result will be just as tasty as when using real yoghurt.
If you want a gluten-free version of these overnight oats, consider buying oats that are guaranteed gluten-free. You can for example check out brands such as Bob’s Red Mill or Quaker.
