  • OMG! I felt I was eating a dessert, for real! I made a combination of cacao powder with peanut butter, maca powder, cinnamon, and hemp seeds; next morning I pour it into a bowl with half banana and frozen berries, delicious!!! Thank you, big fan!

  • Made this Saturday morning. Ate it afte post-ride today. Really nice, definitely recommended. Not sure about pre-ride though. Would sit a bit heavy on the stomach

  • Will the rolled oats still be chewy. I want to try it but not chewy. I love Chia pudding. Great for snack for Post-Op bariatric people. Thanks.

  • Hay GCN I am an avid cyclist but I am a freak of nature as is don’t like coffee or tea what could I use instead of the espresso in this very yummy sounding recipe.

  • Complete mess each time! I’m SURE that you use a bowl to mix, then transfer to a jar, unless you enjoy cleaning your counter each time and wasting the food that dropped.

  • I love putting zucchini in my morning oatmeal. Sometimes I swap riced cauliflower. The texture is a bit noticeable, but not the taste. And I love getting veggies in my breakfast!

  • Nice new combinations I definitely need to try. To combine everything you can simply put the lid on and give it a good shake. Makes Life far more easier. I nearly eat overnight oats everyday and my favourite combo is with vegan neutral protein powder, maca, chiaseeds, frozen raspberries that I add just before serving so everything gets slightly frosty, kiwi and some toppings: amaranth popps, hemp seeds, cacaonibs and pb

  • It’s a good idea to grind the chia seeds for better absorption. You could also use soy milk powder which is much cheaper than if you bought the ready made soy milk. Almond milk is also expensive and processed.

  • I have just made this in a sealed lunch box to take with me for after gym breakfast tomorrow morning. Cannot wait to try it. Licking the spoon has to do for tonight….

  • This is great. Oats are the perfect gluten free breakfast option and combined with chess seeds makes a great gluten free combination. Well done!!!

  • I usually do an Almond Joy themed overnight oats! Thank you for these other ideas. The Peach Cobbler, Zucchini Chocolate Chip, and Banana Bread look yummy! ��

  • I would love to see 6 ways of cold pasta dishes. I love pasta salad in summer for lunch and want some more varieties! Thank you for sharing ❤️

  • I always feel bad whenever i eat uncooked oats.. i get a stomachache for 3+ hours, i always have to cook oats before eating them����

  • Milk should not be mixed with lemon or curd or berries as they all are sour. Not good for health. You can google it out if you want.

  • So, I wanted to make the apple pie. I made the oatmeal chia seed base and sweetened with maple syrup. Went to the fridge to get an apple…. no apple but I had a pear. Chopped up the pear. Didn’t want peanut butter so I added chopped walnuts instead. Alas, no raisins but I had dried cranberries. Added ground cinnamon and ground clove for spice! Breakfast is served!

  • If I make all of these on Monday will they stay fresh till its time 2 eat number 6? �������������� �� I’d put low or fat free lemon yogurt & walnuts on top the carrots cake 1 �� that was my favourite ��

  • Hi, I tried making the red overnight oats and it turned bitter the next day. Could I know actually how does it suppose to taste?

    Has the oat turned bad if it’s bitter?

  • This video was my introduction to C and D and to eating a whole lot healthier. Now I watch all the time and enjoy every video. Especially those with those cute kids! Many blessings to you and your healthy fam!

  • Personally I’ve always layered my oats with my fillings and added the milk once I was done, but I think I’ll try mixing it like this! Also, apple pie oats is one of the best ones for beginners or those not keen about oatmeal to try. When I make it, I use apples, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla extract. Also I add Carmel sauce on top, though it’s not the healthiest lol.

  • guys just wanted to say that quick oats will work PERFECTLY with this recipe, if anything they give it a thicker and smoother texture!!!

  • This recipe is so good! I always hate eat oats bcause of its plain taste but after trying your recipe it turn out really delicious ���� Thanks you so much for the recipe, may god bless you

  • chop a banana and add to oats that were steeped in a large cup with a lid in semi-skimmed milk overnight top with fresh raspberries Simples!!

  • Wonderful that Emma, thank you. Will definitely be giving that a go. I’ve just watched the carrot cake porridge vid too – if you’ve got more they’d be very welcome. I’m loving where GCN is going these days. ��

  • am I the only one who gets a weird taste if the oats aren’t cooked? why is it?? I’d like to do them overnight but they end up tasting like crap and the texture isn’t nice either:(

  • I kinda want a bit more flavor.. So instead of greek, maybe some low-calorie vanilla yogurt. And for the oats, a packet of apple cinnamon instant oats (soaked in almond milk to make it less stale). Top it with strawberries and bananas. and a hint of chocolate shavings. I kinda have a sweet tooth.

  • Made this last night for my morning commute and it was great. I probably put too much coffee in so it was a little bitter in places but really enjoyed it and will definietly be making this more regularly before heading off on my bike. Great recipe!

  • Hello!
    Loved the video. Just one question: how many calories it contains? Really looking forward to have more healthy meals to include into my diet. Thanks in advance:)

  • Never ever mix yogurt and milk. Also fruits and milk products are a big no no. I would rather have them separately.There are some food combinations that we should always avoid. Yogurt and Milk is one such pairing. While the individual consumption of these two does not cause many problems, combining these two can cause some headaches. According to studies, the combination of yogurt and milk can result in improper digestion.

  • As I see some people are complaining about the amount of sugar and consider this recipe unhealthy for that reason. Correct me if I am wrong, but as I know it depends on the person. Would be unhealthy for a cyclist who needs 3000 calories a day, because (s)he is 5’6, weights 120 lbs, rides 6-7 hours a week etc. but another cyclist who needs 7000 calories a day (6’3, 170 lbs, rides 15-18 hours a week) then more sugar would be specifically necessary, because eating only complex carbs, like 5 huge plates of pasta and beans a day would cause some stomach problems.

  • I’m used to eating my hot oatmeal with lots of coconut oil, cinnamon and brown sugar. Overnight oats are easy to make and I’ve tried apple, cinnamon, then banana, chocolate. So far I’m only mildly impressed. I am going to try a berry one then chocolate, peanut butter. I’m hoping that I find one I like because of the ease of making it.

  • Since eating oats my skin looks healthier. I feel satisfied and realise I eat less junk food through out day after having oats. Thanks!

  • No dairy, ever. It’s bad for your respiratory system, which you need to climb mountains. It promotes hormonal changes that affect areas like your prostate, which you need to stay on the saddle. It also promotes cancerous cells. Dairy it’s as bad as it gets. When I hear comments like, “if you are a vegan, do such and such…” it makes me think of a few alternatives, like ” milk tastes great, but if you want optimal performance, without the risk of health problems, use such and such”. Ahhh to dream…

  • I love your videos I first found you on Instagram and have probably followed you for at least a year and I’m not sure why I never put it together you had a YouTube channel. So I’ve legit been binge watching your video for hours, my son and fiancé are asleep and I’m trying to be quiet. So this is what I’m doing I guess ����‍♀️

  • Yeah, tried this recipe and it’s just horrible. Cold soggy oats topped with sickening sweet goop. Should have known better trying this when I saw that it filled a pint sized glass. Who eats that much for breakfast ever??

  • I prefer my oats very thick so I literally just blend a banana and add some yogurt and then add my oats. I do different variations such as adding some berries or cocoa powder. Sometimes my banana is really brown and liquidy and it is enough to make my oats mushy and thick which is just what I love. I also really like blending a mango to a pulp and soaking my oats in that. And just like you said, the sky is the limit. I’ve even made orchata flavored overnight oats

  • I am new to the cooking world, so you don’t need to cook rolled oats beforehand? Then what’s the difference between rolled and instant oats?

  • Really loved it! Went out on hard ride and felt good. Only one issue 90g was a lot if oats. 60g would be enough for me as a breakfast before the ride. Really full!

  • Never heat food in the microwave it basically kills all nutrition values. Microwaves are only good for melting butter, heating water and that cold cup of coffee.

  • I went to buy some of the jars, that you put the oats in, but do not see them. Could you link where you got them, with the white and gold bowls, that you put each thing in, while making these? One last thing, the wood thing that you used to smash the fruit, could you link that also? Thanks:)

  • Do you think that if you replaced the blackberries with blueberries, it would be ok? Or if you used soy, or another nut milk this would still work? I’m thinking of making a couple of these for my sister with some dietary restrictions

  • I’ve been following you on your site for years and have never tried overnight oats. Finally did as I was looking for a nutritious, quick breakfast before working out. Mind. Blown. Thank you!!

  • Your adding way too much sugary ingredients to this. Completely ruins the health benefits. As a nurse practitioner I took an extra year of nutrition so I am qualified to say this. Make it plain overnight and then add in the stuff afterwords if you really can’t have it plain for some reason.

  • What a fantastic recipe video. I’m definitely trying them and I shared this with a friend of mine. Please keep the recipe coming��

  • I think this recipe is a little out of touch with modern views on carbohydrates versus fats. i would leave out the sugar and use full fat yogurt

  • Must be the secret of eating oats partially rolled oats from German grocery store,,, that stuff is so hard and tough to cook that it like eating horse feed…

  • Everytime I makes overnight oats, the oats come out somewhat hard and liquidy. I was hoping to see the texture of these oats. Thank you Dani!

  • If you want to vegan-ize it tou can add non-dairy milk instead of milk and I make cashew cream instead of yoghurt. You could get vegan yoghurt but they are processed foods 😉

  • why am i here? i don’t even eat breakfast lmao. but i gotta admit, simple overnight oats with banana and no sweetener is THE shit.

  • I tried the bananas and peanut butter one and yummmy it was so good I’m not a fan of oatmeal but this stuff is good �� thank you for sharing this easy over night recipe with us

  • I’m new in youtube.This is one of my videos. Maybe (I hope:) ) you’ll like my video.Please subscribe to support:) https://youtu.be/TyGPRvHJ9lM

  • Does anyone find their overnight oats bitter or it’s just me? I followed the recipe here for kiwi-strawberry overnight oats step by step so I don’t know where I went wrong… googled it but haven’t found an exact answer for the problem. HELP! ��

  • This is my first time viewing it..and i’m qiute confused about the the oats cause there so many kind of oats.can anyone tell me what do you mean by old fashion oats??is that the rolled oats??

  • I want someone to try this and comment on how it tastes. I have never had oatmeal in a jar and am curious to find out if I would like it.

  • Love your recipes, your personality, your tone of voice and knowledge, you are so genuine… I just made a large bowl of one of your recipes, already had some of it during making. can’t wait to wake up in the morning and try it…❤️

  • These are so fun to make and they smell so good when mixing all the ingredients. I made one with the rolled oats and one with the instant oats. Although the rolled oats are healthier I like the texture of the instant oats better and they’re ready to eat within a couple hours of being refrigerated. Thanks for the video❤

  • Overnight oats have become my go-to breakfast the morning of a big ride. I usually combine oats, milk, cinnamon, vanilla, honey, and whatever fruit I’ve got sitting around.

  • @GCN: I’m on a marvelous cycling trip with my mates in the Fr. Alpes, the only downside…how to recover fast after a day-in-day-out 2000+ ascending trip?

  • I made it with yogurt, dark chocolate, peanut butter and soya milk(since plant based milk last longer than diary milk). I only have quick cooking oats tho, but still taste okay even though it looks lika a mushy slimmy creatures. Love it!

  • No need to sweeten. Cook with water adding chia seeds and spices for savoury oatmeal which is much healthier than adding fruits and even Greek yogurt because of the fructose and sugar.

  • Pls include your handsome husband in the next video. Even if he just stands at the back. I have this feeling this lady has a handsome husband.

  • Tried it this morning. SUPER filling (I wasnt able to finish a whole pint worth so I may halve it) but it tasted awesome too! Thanks Emma more please!

  • never eaten oatmeal in mylife I just came hear to see how you prepare but you know what I think al add sugar cinnamon and bananas, thank you

  • I very rarely comment anything anywhere really. But I can’t help it this time. 1) I did this and it was absolutely DELICIOUS! Even with a bit let sugar it tastes absolutely amazing. 2) Emma has got the gist of this being a presenter thing and to be honest, it seems she’s been doing it for many years! Keep it up GCN!

  • If you grew up eating cold cereal for breakfast this might be a good addition to to your Wheaties or Corn Flakes. But is not oatmeal a good hearty warm breakfast. I guess I was kinda stupid for not realizing this but I didn”t. It is a meal made from Oats, which are supposed to be good for you, but it is not oatmeal. Some like it hot some like it cold, this is definitely cold.

  • Omg sooooo good! I only tried the peanut butter apple recipe and it was delish!! Thanks for this healthy breakfast idea, will definitely make this again…

  • I read somewhere that you shouldn’t soak oats in the fridge but at room temp rather and it takes up to 24h to release those acids, so it’s best to leave them for at least 12h, just sharing

  • What a great idea! I name my favorite the 3Bs: Bacon bits, banana, and bees wax. I love how the sweet and salty clumps of bacon and oats are stuck to my dentures.

  • So the fruits will stay in the jar overnight? Just wondering,, wont the fruits absorb the liquid ad have a weird mushy texture when eaten there next morning?

  • For the record, a British pint glass is larger than a US pint glass, so the given measurements won’t fit for those of us in the US! I had to scale down slightly to have any room for the bananas and yogurt!!! Excited for the morning though!

  • Why haven’t I made this discovery before now… I’ve been burning that damned milk basically every goddamned day since I moved into my dorm

  • Hi everyone..couldn’t sleep so decided to watch some vids….found this, my 1st introduction to these amazing seeds. Wow I’m hooked and can’t wait to get to the shops and start some healthy receipts.

  • I’ve tried this and enjoyed it too much. Now this is one of my favorite breakfasts. Thanks a ton for sharing this delicious and healthy recipe. Lots of love from India ����

  • I thought this video was going to show me 3 different WAYS to make overnight oats,as I have never made/seen them before….when actually this is 3 different types and flavours of overnight oats…just a little bit misleading..good video though ��

  • Instead of Stevia, I use finely chopped dates and one tiny (I mean tiny) squirt of maple syrup. It works perfectly. I also fine that a small dash of salt helps bring out the flavors. I mix peanut butter in as well.

    For toppings I like dark chocolate chips or strawberries. If im feeling like I deserve a treat, I’ll use both dark chocolate chips AND strawberries. So damn good

  • Why am I so excited to make these?! Haha I’ve been looking on how to make these on my own �������� Thank You! And you are sooo to the point!

  • Hey Dani I love your channel and made theses pots today, 2 of the Peanut Butter Apple Pie Oats and 2 of the Double Chocolate Banana Oats. My mix was very dry (I did sub 1 cup of Almond Milk for 1 cup of Greek Yoghurt) and I had to use 12oz Mason Jars for the four pots I made. The Double Chocolate was made even drier when I added the Cocoa Powder. Any suggestions on what I may have done wrong. I know you can see what I did but would love some advice. Many Thanks from Australia.

  • I LOVE overnight oats and can eat them for breakfast almost everyday. The blueberry lemon combo is what I will be trying tomorrow since I love lemon. Yummy…

  • When I first started watching I was sure these were going to be complicated or gross sounding but I was surprised to find they sound very yummy. I shall be making them soon.

  • I liked and subscribed to your channel today. I love the healthy and filling breakfast options. Thanks for the easy to follow directions.

  • Good content but i couldnt stand the way the presenter stresses the words. Its so unnatural and annoying. I couldn’t watch the last one because i was too irritated!

  • Tried this before London To Brighton at the weekend, used 40 grams of oats and cut sugar back, really impressed with the taste. Could become my favourite pre ride breakfast, luv the fact that it can be prepared night before.

  • Dani your awesome great video! I’m going to try the blueberry-lemon and the tropical using unsweetened coconut milk for the flavor because I hate shredded coconut. Thank you!

  • If you soak raisins in rum over night or for a few hours, it will make the last one even more delicious.Great recipes btw.ThanX:)

  • It is absolutely delicious. My whole family fell in love with chocolate overnight oats. I skip the sweetner because I find that the banana adds enough sweetness.

  • Omg all of them so freaking good. Girl I live for them!!! Dear Danny, even though you said you’re not vegan or vegetarian, since watching your videos over the last few years you’ve made helped me become a really good vegetarian!! Working on being a vegan. Thanks for all these amazing recipes over the years! Is there a book in the pipeline yet? Joe x

  • Hi,
    I just want to enquire which type of oats are you using. Coz there are those instant ones and those which require cooking. Please advise. Thanks

  • OMG Thank you so much for raving about the peanut butter/apple recipe SO DELICIOUS. I didn’t bother adding stevia to sweeten the oatmeal base as the fruit was enough to sweeten but I always add a pinch of salt to oats which makes a massive flavour difference. #sogood just like you say ��

  • Everyone must be careful when using “low fat” anything. LOW FAT just means they have replaced the fat with sugar. Check the label before replacing good food with fillers. Here in Canada there is an education against products labelled as LOW FAT due to the increase in obesity.

  • Do the chia seeds get slimy like they do if you put them just in water? Not a big fan of them for that reason. Is it ok to not add them? Thanks!!!

  • I need to try these! So far I’ve liked all of your recipes that I’ve tried, and my toddler and I love watching your videos. Everything looks so appealing!

  • I loooove overnight oats more than regular oats cooked in pot. They’re so much more savoury and enjoyable. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Elisa ������ Stay safe!

  • I just learned about over night oats using oat bran I can’t do regular oatmeal I don’t like the texture. I use 1 cup of oat bran I container of premier vanilla protein drink a dash of cinnamon and 1 TBS of PB2 powder shake and leave over night in the morning I top with blue berries and coconut chips so good it’s 3 serving for me and I stay full for much longer then just the protein shake.

  • New sub here! ���� Watching all of your breakfast vids and I LOVE THEM! Thank you so much for the inspiration and positive energy! Lots of love from Sweden ����

  • I made a cherry overnight oats recipe based off of this video! You can make this vegan, too. If you wan’t to try it here it is:

    Anna’s Cherry-Chia Overnight Oats <3

    Spatula/Wooden spoon
    Jar with lid or any other container
    Mixing bowl

    1/4 cup Chia Pudding (Any recipe that works for you!)
    1/2 cup Milk (use your favorite milk alternative if your vegan)
    1/2 cup Rolled Oats
    5 Cherries, each cut into fourths with the pit taken out
    1 1/2 teaspoons Honey (optional, use your favorite sweetener if you’re vegan)

    Combine the milk and rolled oats in your mixing bowl, and stir with the wooden spoon. Add the chia pudding and stir until well combined. The milk might not completely bond with the other ingredients, but after you leave it in the fridge overnight it settles together. Then, you add the cherries and stir very well. You can mash them up if you would like more flavor in the base ingredients, but I like to keep them as larger chunks. Transfer the mixture to your jar of container and seal with lid. In the morning, stir it up and add honey or sweetener. Enjoy!!!
    (ps pls don’t steal this recipe I took I really long time typing this and also making it. plus, I might make a video on it on my channel. if you tried to make this I genuinely hope it went really well and you liked it. Bye! <3)

  • Hey. This is me Algerian woman from Cannes, and I’m really in love, with your all delicious recipes and advices, thank you so much:)

  • Tried this for brekkie before a 20km intense mountain bike ride in the Blue Mountains NSW Australia worked a treat & absolutely delicious thanks Emma & GCN:)

  • Hi, i read up on some page where they say we should not eat both milk and yogurt together. Then how a bout most overnight oat recipes? does it have the same side effect?

  • Is it okay to mix fresh lime juice with milk and curd? Milk seperates into whey and solids when mixed with lemon. Also curdling begins when fresh milk is added to curd. I know individually they’re great ingredients but not sure how they work in combination to aid weight reduction. Please clarify.

  • If u close the jar with a cap, the milk might expand and shred ur jar to shreds make sure to close your jar a piece of cloth or either plastic wrap.

  • Wonderful, gosh what a nice treat to eat! Emma, your a great bike rider, AND you know how to make goodies, why, what could anyone ask for more, I’ve mentioned it before but must say it again, you my friend are a jewel:-):-):-)

  • I tried this recipe (minus the espresso but with everything else) and found it very bland. I used chopped oats and they really overpowered every other flavour. It would taste better with loads more sugar but that wouldn’t be too healthy.
    I still ate all of it over a couple of days, it was not bad, just not delicious either.
    Next to try the apple pie smoothie!

  • Just tried it, tastes very good although I found it was a little too liquid even after a night in the fridge. Next time I think I’ll cut the milk by 50ml or so, to see if it gives a more “solid” result. It is in fact a lot of sugar, but it isn’t a problem if you take pre or post ride, or occasionally. Thanks gcn, great job Emma and thumbs up from France!

  • Just a thought, no need to add stevia or any sweetner when using fruit especially the last one. Here’s another great flavour combo:

    Dates, Chocolate, Walnuts

    Grated carrot, a dash of orange juice (instead of milk or yogurt) cinnamon

    Grapefruit, Kiwi (no liquid, milk, yogurt as there is enough water in them)

  • why cow milk and yogurt (it’s got so much nasty hormones in it and it is incredibly cruel)? if you need more protein just add almond butter, also coconut sugar is even tastier than muscovado sugar and some say healthier. but I thought most people eat twich as much protein but only half the fibers they need. so not sure if you really need more protein….

  • Made this when ye posted the video, definitely a ‘serves 2’ recipe, making it again this week, for a race with an early start…half before, half after…

  • When you say put in the freeze for 6 hrs Is that mean in the freezer or just in the refrigerator?
    I want try western style breakfast:)

  • Thanks a bunch for the suggestion, Emma, you’ve nailed it (once again). I’ve tried it and not only was it awesome, it also improved my pre-weekend ride routine. If I have to mention something negative, it’s that I assumed it would make me as fast as you and it did not pan out that way…

  • Tried this for a 5 hr tempo ride this morning. Made it last night. Was real easy to make. Tasted great and most importantly, brilliant pre ride breakfast fuel. Thanks Emma and the GCN team. keep the videos coming please!

  • Thank you Emma! Tried this and loved it (although it was way too much for me to eat in one sitting, will probably cut the recipe in half next time). Can I request you do a recipe with Peanut Butter next? Yummmmm

  • Tried this and its absolutely amazing! got a little bit naughty this morning and stirred a spoon of Peanut Butter through the yogurt and muscavado sugar… Tasty:-)

  • I’ve got a 35 mile either way commute in quite hilly Cornwall. Don’t do it every day but couple time a week and always looking for some recovery when i get in. Thinking you may have just helped me find it!

  • We made 3 types out of these last night. We have yet to try two of them, but the chocolate peanut butter one was delicious! My kids absolutely loved it. Thank you!

  • Some people have a high tolerance to sugar due to it being used in most food these days, but that is still a lot of sugar.
    However, the 30g of protein absorbtion per meal is a myth. Way more then that can be absorbed if required.

  • I have just made this recipe after a couple of hours of hard work on my bike. I used unsweetened soy milk and soy yogurt. It’s absolutely Deeelliiiccciiiouuuusss! Yum! I think that it’s a lot more food that my body after a ride. I have some leftovers. I definitely think this would be more suited as a nice post training recovery meal or could qualify as a treat. Half of it was enough for me.

  • Great to make and take to the boat on the weekends. Any variation of the original recipes work. Milk yogurt fruit…use what you have on hand. NOT expensive!! Thanks.

  • It is a widespread myth fueled by the supplement industry that your body isn’t able to absorb any more than 30g of Protein per meal. For more info on the topic read “A guide to flexible dieting” by Lyle McDonald.

  • Personally I make the oats first and let them stay overnight and in the morning I’ll chop up some fresh fruit. Tastes 10xs fresher

  • Brought all the ingredients in this video! Yes it was a bit costly but most of the ingredients I brought in bulk so will last for ageees so in the long run it’s worth it. And if you don’t want to use fresh fruits, you can always use frozen which is cheaper. Anyways I made some of these in one go to eat the next few mornings. Had the fat burner this morning and it was suprisingly delicious! Think I will stick to overnight oats for breakfast from now on. Thanks for the video ��

  • Can someone give me some examples of portions (measurements) for the ingredients. I ended up putting to much in the first part (milk oats and yogurt).

  • I LOVE how easy you’re making a whole-foods, plant-based diet for others!

    I also love overnight oats!

    I have to be honest, I’ve never been a big breakfast person. BUT, if I were to have breakfast, this would be the way I would go!

  • THIS is my new favorite breakfast! I prep about 2-3 servings in advance for quick go-to breakfast option. I make mine with the same base as yours but add in some raisins, a TB of almond butter 1 tsp (or less) of maple syrup and a pinch of cinnamon. In the morning I top with fresh strawberry slices and blueberries! Bon A Petit! 😉


  • Love your videos, you always do a thorough job and make things look very interesting and easy.

    Quick question for you I love the little ramekins you used with the gold trim any chance you can send me the link where you bought them from?
    I also love the gold silverware that you use. Are you having any problems with the gold coming off? As I’m already through my second set in a year as the gold comes off?any recommendations?

  • Tried and more than approved. Love that before a long ride. Additional advantage: no time needed to prepare breakfast on the day of the ride. Grab that in the fridge and off you go…

  • I made this with a few changes. The full recipe would be way too much for me under any circumstances, so I cut it in half. I’m not a big coffee fan, so I mixed about a teaspoon of unsweetened cocoa with warm water instead of using coffee. I also used nonfat greek yogurt instead of lowfat. It’s delicious and easy and actually, I’m only eating half of a portion and saving half for tomorrow!

  • 4 weeks ago I switched from cooked oatmeal to overnight oats. Love them! Great ideas here, here is my favorite recipe so far:
    .75 cups rolled oats (I used organic and sprouted for extra nutrition)
    1 cup to 1.25 cups of nut milk (I use Silk Unsweetened Vanilla flavor Cashew milk), only 25 calories
    Heaping half cup of fresh blueberries (not frozen, fresh taste better)
    3 tablespoons of raisins
    1.5 teaspoons of cinnamon
    (I also add 1 tablespoon of hemp seeds, and 1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds)…

    Tweak levels to your liking. Try it, you’ll love it

  • I made this recipe and it was delicious! I was really surprised how tender the oats had become by the morning. I didn’t use the sugar, instead opting for some healthier honey instead. I also added chia seed and made mine with soya milk. But yes, as a pre/post ride meal it’s fantastic.

  • I already tried some of your smoothie recipes and I could show imagines these overnight oat taste. Im going to do my best to memorize all of them. TBH, they’re not that expensive if you buy them one at a time and the fresh fruits can be bought last and by the end you’ll have a recipe. It’s simple.

  • Just had for my pre ride breakfast. Super nice porridge. Definitely will make this again. I made it with unsweetened almond milk and it was not too sweet. Would recommend this. Thanks for the great videos and advice GCN.

  • Nice recipe I’ll be swapping out the the milk for hazelnut milk and the yogurt for coconut yogurt. As for the vegan one being low protein please give us a break with the protein nonsense. There’s over 2000 different types of protein in the body. The human body can make all of them apart from the 8 essential amino acids and the reason we haven’t evolved to make them ourselves is because they are available in abundance in our food. What’s the medical term for protein deficiency? And name a U.K. hospital with a protein deficiency ward while you’re at. The whole protein thing is marketing. The fastest you will grow is when you are a baby drinking breast milk which is 80% carbs very low protein, but a baby will double in size in 6 months. So please GCN stop push the protein thing it’s carbs carbs carbs cyclists need because bonking sucks massively and makes cycling miserable ������
