  • In fact, as per Ayurveda, banana and milk together is considered to be a bad combination and can affect your digestion as well as can aggravate respiratory disorders like sinus, cold and cough

  • Holy crap…this looks so good, @Mind Over Munch you are a fitness food god! I am totally hooked on your videos, love your recipes!

  • I make my overnight oaks banana, raisin, yogurt, blueberries n cacao nibs�� I don’t add sugar or honey because it’s sweet enough from the raisin n banana ����

  • This is such a beautiful and creative breakfast option Natalie! I love the thick creaminess of the oats and those awesome chunky pears on top. Then the chocolate chip and nuts on top make it perfection!

  • Mmmmmm love overnight oats. So good! Well of course, Bob’s Red Mill products are fabulous. Just too costly for me to get on the regular. Good tip about the g-f certified foods. Not having celiac’s I don’t tend to worry about certification. They’re so good, to me, because they’re healthful, creamy yumminess.

    Being on a tight budget I haven’t gotten as fancy as I’d like with overnight oats. Usually oats, yogurt, raisins. But, hm. I’d like to make an oats, yogurt, chia seed, pecan, pear, spice one. Or same but apple, walnut one. Or same but strawberry, almond. I do miss bananas. Oh and almond butter. Or peanut butter with the apple one. Or protein powder maybe?

  • For the first time i just recently bought that exact same brand of rolled oats, expect i got the non organic extra thick kind! When they say extra thick they really do mean that LOL! Anyways… I tried it with almond milk and some granola and bananas, it tasted good but again… It was too thick i should of bought the regular one ugh. It’s good to make quick and easy stuff but you’re still left with hunger pains, i would love to see you make some comfort food videos, that can give me ideas on what i can make with these oats. I love breakfast, since it’s the most important meal of the day.

  • Alyssia this was revelation I loved everything about it!!! Have not tried the other ones yet but the coconut banana and oh my word slurp slurp slurp too good to be true!!! Also you always crack me up you are sooo funny

  • Hello Alyssa, are u interested in a new plant base protein powder that contain more B12, more nutritional value than spirulina

    If you are interested, i can send you the link articles that talk about this plant

    Bless ��

  • I like apple-cinnamon-raisin applepie like overnight oats!
    I use TheDomesticGeek’s basic recipe for overnight oats, and add fresh apple, some cinnamon and raisins c:

  • Super video as always:) I love mixing my overnight oats with protein powder. It gives extra sweetness and flavour.My fave is blueberry with cookies and creme protein:)

  • Are overnight oats kind to your stomach? I have IBS and I’m sensitive to too much fibres, but if the oats lay in the liquid all night it might work as “cooked” and therefor milder? Does anyone know?

  • It’s 10:30pm in my place, i’m on bed already but I feel an urge to walk to kitchen and try this recipe for tmr breakfast. �� Thank you!

  • I love how you watching your honey, is priceless, He does not have to say much, his expressions says it all. Please continue posting your wonderful recipes.

  • im actually trying this tomorrow morning:D huge fan of overnight oats <3 my fav is adding chia seeds, and mixed berries (esp strawberries and raspberries!) cant wait its sitting in the fridge i need it now!! haha! <3 love yas:D xx

  • Since I discovered this video I’ve made them every day! I wasn’t sure I was going to like it but I do very much. I do find that I like the 1 parts Oats to probably.8 parts milk and I’ve been playing around with the flavors. With the chocolate I used some coconut extract and topped it with some sweetened shaved coconut and some pecans. I still find it amazing that no one else has every bothered to mention that it isn’t going to be oatmeal because when I heard about this that what I thought it was going to be. I felt like you answered all my questions without me having to ask!!!

  • I make overnight oats, but in my half a cup of oats i usually do half oats half quinoa flakes, half a cup almond milk and a teaspoon of chia seeds as my basic base.

  • The best I’ve found so far! Thank you. I haven’t done this yet but I am definitely going to. I really appreciate that you did clarify that it isn’t necessarily “oatmeal” because when I first heard about this, i was assuming that it would somehow turn into the soft, plump oatmeal overnight. Thank you for that. I appreciate thoroughness:-) You’ve got a new fan!

  • could this be prepared and then stored in the refrigerator in a plastic airtight container? and then scooped out into bowls for serving? eating out of the pretty single serving glass jars is messy for me. thanks!

  • Pumpkin pie oats! Pumpkin piiiiiiie! I am such a fan of pumpkin, pumpkin pie, pumpkin pie spice(s), pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin yogurt, and pumpkin seeds. Plus they’re decorative, seasonally meaningful, tied to my paganism (a wee one always adorns my Samhain altar) and the carving of them provides some wonderful memories. Yep, pumpkins, I’m a big fan. I have not thought about pumpkin pie oats before though. I love it! So going on my to-make list. Wheeee!

  • Are the oats cooking in some way? I don’t understand what makes them edible unless they are cooked. Also, would adding soaked chia seeds be a good substitute for protein powder?

  • I love overnight oats in an almost empty peanut butter jar, it adds such a great creamy texture. I usually just add banana for sweetness and it’s perfect

  • I saw another video about overnight oat and I tried it two days ago. Amazing, but now I love cocoa and I ‘ll surely try this one too, so I don’t get bored.

    Thank you so much!

    Note: I am more like a traditional bread and cheese or egg breakfast kind of person but this oat is so yummy and filling so I recommend people give it a chance!

  • Thank you, looks like a yummy breakfast. What can you substitute the Greek yogurt with for someone who cannot eat dairy. Oh, and the substitute has to be simple as we live in Central America. Thanks

  • I would love to see a recipe on overnight zoats (have you heard of them??) They are overnight oats with zucchini grated in it. I really want to make them to get in another veggie, but last time I made them it was crunchy and weird! Thanks <33

  • Oooh this looks delicious! I made this for tomorrow, except I subbed the pears for some apples instead! I’m looking forward to it:)

  • Common you’re in Colorado so why not do some videos outside in the beautiful nature…maybe a hiking video or something, I love nature and love love ❤️ hiking in the woods and wilderness

  • I really appreciate the product recommendation. I had seen overnight oats before and I looked in the store for the oats, and I was not certain the ones I was looking at were “good”. I’m glad I didn’t get them. They were VERY wrong. Phew!!!! Thank you!!!!!

  • thanks for the video. Btw do u have overnight oats recipe with sweet pumpkin? I want to try but i dont have any idea what kind of other ingredients should i add more

  • Just made this last night for today’s breakfeast and OH MY GOD. This is AMAZING. I’ve been eating over-night oats for awhile now but I never ever thought about adding Greek Yogurth to them, makes them sooooooo creamy. Mmm can see myself having this for the next few weeks ������

  • Hi, I’m eating your recipe for the chocolate oats. and there delicious. Thanks for sharing. There easy and fast for in the morning.

  • Okay so I never drink milk, but I’m just so curious to try this 😉 do you taste the milk? I just don’t know what these oats taste like haha!!

  • Hello, I enjoyed your video recipe, “Chocolate Overnight Oats.” I am going to make this tomorrow and include this healthy food on a regular basis. Best regards from, Scotland.

  • it is not a recipe if you don’t list the amount of any of the ingredients… it looks good, but one cannot replicate it without the ingredient list.

  • My overnight oats are so simple but really good. 1/2 cup of oats, 2/3 cup of almond milk (you can use any kind though) 1 table spoon of chia seeds and tablespoon of sweetener. I use Splenda!

  • I know I’m late to the video but I’ve been dying to try overnight oats and I love your other recipes! Can you store these in the fridge for more than one night and make overnight oats for the whole week??? thanks for posting awesome videos!

  • My top 2 overnight oats recipes, hands down:

    Strawberries and cream: 1/2 cup oats, 1 tablespoon chia seeds, 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, pinch of salt, 1/2 cup chopped strawberries and some almond milk. I don’t measure the milk, just add enough to get the right consistency.

    PB Cup: 1/2 cups oats, 1 tablespoon chia seeds, 1 tablespoon maple syrup, 2 tablespoon PB2, 1 tablespoon cacao powder, pinch of salt and milk. I make this in an empty peanut butter jar and it’s to die for!

  • My fave flavour I’m obsessed with tastes like apple pie! To my oats, Greek yogurt and unsweetened vanilla almond milk I add chopped green apple, cinnamon and sultanas (sometimes a little bit of vanilla extract), I also add vanilla protein powder as I eat this for breakfast / post workout meal after my workout on my way to work

  • I made the blueberry almond overnight oats on the pdf, and I wanted to let you know they were fantastic! Thanks for sharing, and keep up the good work!

  • This was a really great find! I have never been an overnight oatmeal breakfast as I do not like the texture of it. Tried your recipe this morning and I was really surprised! Was delicious and I felt super full after. Will definitely redo it:)

  • I am making this! Summer holiday herekids wake up early, I am glad I can make something easy, yummy and healthy for them to eat:) and be ready in the fridge.

  • Ah! I never heard of overnight oats! I usually prefer steel cut oats but once you said it tastes like pudding, I was on board. It looks like such a healthy breakfast treat. Can’t wait to try:)

  • I love overnight oats. After an extended exploration through the world of other breakfast options, my heart returns again to this most simple and comforting of morning meals. #overnightoats4life

  • Cant compare to other overnight oat recipes on youtube, The measurements are perfection. It’s heavenly. Thank you for sharing! These oats are next level.

  • I saw this video a month ago and let’s just say I’ve come back to report on my new obsession! I have been eating overnight oats for breakfast everyday now and words do not describe my love for healthy, simple, DELICIOUS jars of holy goodness. Thank you! My personal favourite is a fresh and summery Kiwi Strawberry, but also love a decadent Peanut Butter Cocoa with sprinkles of slivered almonds or cashews. MUST TRY guys, believe me. I’ve been converted!

  • i eat a lot of overnigt oats. i ussaly use al my leftover fruits. berry’s, apples, banana’ s or/and melon. I use chia seeds and ussaaly almon or coco milk.

  • I’ve been waiting for this recipe! I can’t wait to try this one! Perfect way to enjoy oats during the summer!! Your amazing, I’m loving this new summer cooking series! Your channel is only cooking channel I watch. Something about you makes cooking seem easy.

Only a few YTers give me cooking confidence. Thank you so much!! Really your channel is great help! @Life as a Twin Mom

  • I am not a fan of Greek Yogurt at all, but use it in some recipes and can’t even taste it. Can you taste the Greek Yogurt in this recipe?

  • It’s yummy without the maple syrup. Who needs the extra calories. The fruit makes it sweet enough. I could eat oatmeal as my only meal forever. I have been eating them with different “mix ins’ or fruit for about 40 years. Glad I found your channel. Good stuff.

  • Hi! Thanks for the great video! I know this is a bit unrelated to this video, but if I was just looking to make some oatmeal pretty quickly in the morning, which would be better: Quaker old-fashioned oats, or Quaker quick oats?

  • Omg I just found your blog and let me tell you it deserved WAY TOO MORE VIEWS. You’re one of my faaaav channels! You are so awesome and inspirational lady and your recipes are ALWAYS SO yummy!

  • I’m a new convert to overnight oatmeal and I’m hooked.  I use the same basic recipe except I add chia seeds. I’ll have to try it with the cocoa powder. 

  • I’m really exited to try this for school especially since I like chocolate but my mom said it’s unhealthy for breakfast but this isn’t!

  • @Mind Over Munch 
    I’ve heard so much about overnight oats, but I’m late to the game-as usual. I have your fab blueberry almond recipe soaking in the fridge right now but I didn’t add the almond butter. (Because it’s $12.97 for a tiny jar & I’m a major cheapskate!) Do you think it’ll turn out ok? Not sure if it’s essential for flavor or texture. Any replacement ideas? 
    Thanks for all your hard work. You are much appreciated in our home!: )

  • I make blueberry overnight oats. A teaspoon of blueberry jam and a handful of blueberries are my add-ins of choice! The jam adds sweetness and a lot of awesome flavour and colour and the blueberries add texture and brightness. Sometimes I add some lemon zest if I have any lemons hanging around, because blueberry and lemon is such a winning combo.

  • Just made this in the kitchen right now. Cannot wait to eat it tomorrow morning! Thanks for another amazing recipe:)
    I usually have my regular overnight oats with almond butter, 1/2 banana or blueberries and sunflower seeds!

  • Hi Ciara! love the recipe! Quick tip on the filming. It would be best (as you remain stationary during your segment) to use manual focus. That way the lens wont hunt when you move slightly! Just set the focal distance and you’re good to go! other than that, love the videos!
