People of the world, I am getting married in 6 days and there is no better way to have some pre-celebrations than to make overnight oats! You might think this sounds strange, but if you know anything about me…it’s not at all. This isn’t just any overnight oats recipe, it’s the best one we’ve come up with yet!

I’m sure you might be thinking “is this really the best overnight oats recipe?” …mostly because we have over 20 overnight oats recipes on Fit Foodie Finds including 2 full overnight oatmeal weeks HERE and HERE, but once you make this recipe, I know you’ll agree with me. The lemon zest is so perfect and that little bit of Greek yogurt really does the trick.

Overnight Oats Meal Prep

What I love about overnight oats is that you can mass produce these kinds of recipes to serve a crowd, large family, etc. So, if you’re hoping to get 8 servings out of this, just double the recipe. Or, if you’re looking to only get 2 servings out of this, half it! Another thing I personally like doing is prepping my overnight oats in single serve jars for an easy grab and go in the AM. You can do this by diving all of the ingredients by 4 and portioning things out that way! Here are some of my favorite overnight oats meal prep containers to use:

Easy Overnight Oats Recipes

In addition to overnight oats being a great form of meal prep, this may or may not be the world’s easiest breakfast to put together. Since there is no cooking involved, all you have to do is mix everything together and pop it in the fridge to soak. From there, you just need to wait a few hours, or, ideally overnight, for your owns to soak up all of that goodness! We suggest serving this recipe cold, but some like to warm this up in the morning before eating! The choice is yours.

Thought we couuld quickly go over what you need for this recipe becuase I am offering some swap suggestions as well to make this recipe vegan/dairy free!

  • rolled oats
  • chia seeds
  • unsweetened almond milk (any kind of milk will work!)
  • Greek yogurt (option to sub a dairy-free yogurt or to omit and add a little bit more almond milk)
  • honey (option to sub maple syrup or omit)
  • vanilla extract
  • lemon zest
