  • All pretty much the same you just changing the fruits, smh! Would of been a better video with other options and real difference! With yogurt, without yogurt, with milk, without milk, ect ect

  • I see a lot of recipes asking you to mix yoghurt with milk… why would you do that? Won’t it cause the milk to curdle overnight and cause acidity in your tummy even if you consume this immediately?

  • This is a marvellous recipe however I find that when I topped this with a little bit of flaxseed and hemp (to boost my protein level) it became quite dense in calories (622 cals).

    Just a little heads up for someone’s who’s doing a caloric deficit (losing weight)

  • OATS! ������
    Yumm.. my daily Morning GoTo.. would eat them for Supper if I was allowed to ����.
    Thanks for that.. Will definitely give them a try.
    My Favourite at the moment.. Oats, Salt to taste, Honey, Chopped Banana, Crunchy Peanut Butter, Cinnamon and Cayenne Pepper. Some variations thereon.. Chopped Mixed Nuts and Fresh Fruit, Dried Cranberries, Raisins, Saltanas, Mango, etc.

  • You should read warning about the Chia seeds..they are good for you in some ways but bad in others, 1 example is if you are on blood thinners you need to be careful when eating them, also if you have low blood presser, some people can have intestine problems or even make your intestines have more problems…so why there is good to the seeds please do more homework before you pass on using them…thank you

  • I tried this for the first time last night. I added my protein powder and flax seed to the mix. It was PERFECT for my morning breakfast!!! Thank you!

  • My brother, please know that Jesus loves you. He came, died on the cross to save us from our sins, and rose again. We deserve to die and go to hell forever to pay for our own sins but Jesus died for us.
    _”How can I be saved?”
    Admit that you’re a sinner and repent.
    Receive Jesus Christ’s gift of forgiveness.
    Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
    Believe that you are now saved by grace and have eternal life in heaven. ❤

  • ☺️��♥️आज कुछ सिंपल बनाइए बहुत ही टेस्टी सत्तू की बाटी और बैगन का भरता फ्राइड वाला जैसे पार्टी में मिलता है

  • I just made these and kept in the fridge to cool, can’t wait to try them with my family ����, thank you so much for making this video for us and God bless ������

  • Delicious!!!
    I wonder how long it will take if I make it with traditional oat? �� trying to skip the stove top and use the oats I already have at home lol

  • Why don’t you stir the ingredients at all? I know it looks Insta-good this way. But isn’t the whole point of overnight oats that all the ingredients meld together, and soften up together? At least to a certain degree? There’s rustic and then there’s rustic.

  • Question.. do the bananas start turning brown by the next day? I LOVE the idea of the banana nut one, but I worry that the banana will become brown if I cut them the night before.

  • Hi lovely! Could we cook the oatmeal with milk instead water and with quinoa instead oats and freeze all to eat later on another day?
    Tyvm:) lisbon, portugal

  • my recipe: 31g of oats, 50g greek yogurt, 3g of chia seeds, half a scoop of a vanilla protein powder, 60 g of frozen berries/fruit, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, and unsweetened vanilla almond milk, usually around around 3/4 cup. comes out to around 270 calories for me. the way i get different flavors is by playing with the fruit options or playing with flavor of protein though most of the time i stick to vanilla or cookies and cream. also just a note, the frozen fruit turn nice and soft by morning time and taste pretty good. i do this most mornings. I really look forward to this every morning. its so good.

  • These units (cups, tsp and tbsp) confuses me. As different websites give different measurements.
    I hope someone helps me to convert them to (ml and grams)

  • Definitely more fruit needed. I use raisins and honey and nonfat yogurt and a little bit of milk in the morning if it’s too thick and usually a drop of vanilla. But you can use bananas and strawberries anything that fresh or frozen. Cherries are good also just don’t mix cherries with raisins because it doesn’t work well. I love these for breakfast.

  • I love the fact that he seems to try things out as he goes. “Oooh, it’s still soft.” He’s an experimentor like me. I love this guy!

  • Absolutely delicious, wento Trader Joe’s got all of the ingredients, husband and I been having the,we absolutely love them,thank you!

  • If anyobe is looking for a review, i tried the blueberry one and ITS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Gave me a great start to the day.

    You can make the blue berry sauce yourself even though im not good at it. I just boil blueberries and water together lol.

  • These look amazing. But I don’t like how these sort of channels feel the need to put every ingredient in its own bowl to make it all look overly clean, along with the poppy music. This just makes me worry about all the dishes..

  • Hi (to all my 100% loyal family) (whoever they are)

    Well it’s like I always dreamed of many great things, (as in things to accomplish) but I have never been able to get anywhere close it it ever, in my whole entire life.
    (Well I mean things to accomplish because obviously in terms of looks (face) I’m the best there is was and do ever will be (real life)

    Well I guess being a 4 without a social instinct is just a pure recipe for disaster.

    And like I said before, it’s not like
    “I’d be satisfied if I fucked 100 girls in my teenage years or dated 100 girls”

    I guess I could say that………… it’s just that I don’t feel like

    “I adequately lived my life”
    (And this is actually a mix of a lot feelings”)

    And it’s like i always wanted to live the “normal life” of a kid in my teen years.
    Such as
    Have a lot of friends, hangout with them, go to gatherings, prom and all that social stuff.
    But I never did any of that, in fact, I dropped out in mid sophomore year. But even when I was in school in freshman I never did any of that either. I was always just kinda of anti social
    ( I had confidence, but I was always self conscious, and the one thing that always hindered me from “trying to get a girl” was my body, and how I need to get in shape first. That was always the excuse. And I never had it in me to get in shape and so I never did anything.
    Well because for me it’s not about the sex (Well it is about the sex) but moreso it’s about myself, and wanting to feel “worthy” because no, I’m not going to be some random bum who gets a girl.

    Because any fugly worthless idiot could get a girl (that’s not what I want) I want to not only get a girl, but feel worthy of it.
    (In terms of looks (face) I’m the best there is was and ever will be (real life) but you get the idea.)
    (It doesn’t matter if the girl likes me or not, I have to like myself in order to feel satisfied)
    (And YES, this is the one true reason why I never ever did anything.)
    (But ofc I’m a 684 and I’m the truth teller but I guess I’d say that a lot of the other reasons I stated were true to a degree. But this is the #1 reason out of all of them)
    And what ALWAYS frustrates me to no end is that.
    The “concept” of getting in shape all you need is a “calorie deficit” it sounds SOOO simple. Yet I could NEVER achieve this.
    I guess it’s because im a 4 and in the book it said that 4’s tend to give up too easily.
    (At least that’s their typical behavior)
    Oh and this reminds me of something else I was thinking about today.

    Out of the 3 feeling types
    2’s go to 8
    3’s go to 9
    4’s go to 2
    If you notice how 8’s and 9’s are a million times stronger than a 2.
    But the opposite is that
    When 4’s rise up they go to a 1
    When 3’s go up they go to 6
    2’s go to 4.
    That would mean 4’s are the most powerful then they on the direction of integration.
    That would explain why I always feel the most capable whenever I’m emotionally moved.
    And remember when this one time, where I got “low key Infatuated with a girl that I never even talked to” in college
    (this was around 2014-2015 before everything started online)
    (It was in the “dark ages” when everyday was just filled with despair and I’d play xbox pc and other games and watched movies/ shows 24/7 everyday just to take my mind off it)
    But yeah, and I just kept listening to like super depressing music while running for hours at night.
    (I was addicted to the “bittersweet” feeling I don’t know if that is considered a 4 going to a 1. )
    But I did have a streak, and I did actually get short term results.
    I ate 1 takeout tray of Panda Express everyday and then ran for about 2 hours non stop every night on my neighborhood in neighborhood in Ohio.
    (So that pretty much cancels out to 0 calories everyday)
    But like I said “I was addicted to the bittersweet emotions” But I don’t know if this is a 4 going to 1.
    But to add on to this.
    I still remember “somewhat” of my mindset every night when I ran back then.
    I remember is that the music I’d listen to is the old ones from my dad ‘s/mom’s collection (and some American music from around the time of highschool and the girl I liked)
    and every single night when I go out to run.
    It’s like I’d listen to that music and it’d remind me of things like

    “My life story, my crush in highschool EVERYTHING that’s ever happened in my life, WHY I NEED to do this”

    And then I’d cry a lot while running too, but it always felt good. And I’d talk out loud to myself outside in the quiet night. And just meditate and reflect on my life in general.

    And I also remember a specific feeling
    (And I think this does mean IT IS a 4 going to 1)
    Well because every time I thought about that back then, I always felt a feeling of
    “a surge of conviction” well something like a 1’s thing.
    Like I’d describe it as
    “An unbreakable resolve to do something”
    (And this is literally after i cry)
    (Well because I’d describe it as “tears of bittersweetness”)

    And uhm…….
    And also……… I guess I’ll always have those regrets no matter what. (Since you cant change the past)
    But I hope to find a wife/true love or something like that lol (in the future 162) with the help of my 100% loyal family.

    And then in the end perhaps I can

    “Find a meaning in everything”

    (I’m sure everything always had a meaning, I just never figured it out yet)

    And typing about this and thinking about the past just made me had more of “that bittersweet feeling”

    Anyhow that should be all for tonight.

    To (all my 100% loyal family) (whoever it is)
    Thanks for reading!
