As part of this series, I decided I was going to share each day one interesting fact with you guys.
Fact #1: I HATE staying up late.
Let me rephrase that. I’m a morning person. When I was younger, I was always the first one up in the Hersh household. Did you know that normal TV programming doesn’t start until 6 AM and all you’re going to get until then is infomercials? Let’s just say I had a long list of items I wanted to buy one day such as Oxyclean, Hairagami, and the Magic Bullet (which I actually own). Even throughout college, I was always the first one asleep. My roommates would be throwing a raging party and I’d hit the pillow at like 10:30 PM #sorrynotsorry. To this day I can’t stand staying up late. It’s the worst when your friends want to meet up at 10 PM. PEOPLE, can’t we just shift our night 3 hours so we can all be home in our footy pajamas sleeping at 10 PM? I do love having the morning to myself!
Do you drizzle the fudge in the morning or when you put it in the fridge?
Either will work just fine!
This is a great recipe! I live off overnight oats when it’s warm out and this is such a fun and delicious variation.
I am lactose intolerant… any substitutes for the greek yogurt?
Any kind of non-dairy yogurt works!
I’m a little confused; you nutritional information for the cookie dough bites says just 1 is around 100 calories. So how, with 5 bites included in this oatmeal, is the oatmeal only 420? What am I missing?
Hi! The serving size for the cookie dough is 6…which is 103 calories! Not sure where you found 1 bite for 100 calories!
This recipe looks great! Also, where did you get that amazing jar?!
It’s from West Elm, but I believe they don’t sell them any more 🙁
The nutritional information appears to be omitted from this recipe post. Can you please provide that information? Thank you!
I just made these overnight oats and I’m currently munching on them as I type this.
Great recipe, I heated mine up in the microwave for about 1:15. Keep up the delicious work!
<3 Glad you loved them!
do you have any suggestion for substituting yogurt?
Hey Kim! The yogurt makes this super creamy, but if you don’t want to use it…you can omit it. You may just have to play with the almond milk measurement!
For the fudge can I sub the almond butter for peanut butter? Also can I completely not use the coconut oil in the fudge?
You can absolutely use any nut butter you want. As for the coconut oil…you can probably get away without using it 😀
What brand of vanilla yogurt to you use? I wasn’t crazy about this recipe (though I sure did love the cookie bites!), but I think that’s because I used store-brand vanilla Greek yogurt. Same question re almond butter. 🙂
Hey Rachel! In this recipe I think I used either Chobani or Siggi’s! As for Greek yogurt- Kirland!
I’m really excited to try this recipe!! However, My calories are not adding up the same. I halfed the recipe for the vanilla oats and my calorie total is 410!! And then another 185 for the fudgey swirl… now, I am using steel cut oats and i added 1/2 Tbsp of nutella to the swirl, but I am going to have to half what i’ve already halfed just to keep the calories under 300. I hope its filling enough!! How are you getting such low calories?
One possibility is that in one place she says that it serves 2…. but in the actual nutrition information it is based on 16 servings. I’m not sure which is right, but I found this recipe through Eat This Not That website and they calculated it as 315 (but you’ll need to add more because of the steel cut vs. rolled oats. I’ll be trying it with steel cut as well, but no nutella, and probably not nearly as much of the fudge topping.
I LOVE overnight oats! I have been eating them for over a year! At first I started with the plain greek yogurt/plain yogurt and I dont buy stevia or natural sugars/maple syrup becasue of the high cost. ANYWAYS, I have been using fruit flavored greek yogurt from Kroger and sometimes Yoplait greek 100 and it only has less then 10g of sugar. I really want to try this! Can you use Old Fashioned Oats?
Aren’t overnight oats the best! You for sure can use old fashioned! I actually prefer that to quick cooking 🙂
Hot damn these oats look amazing! I love the idea of your overnight oats week- can’t wait to see what else you cook up!
High-Fives to overnight oats…It has been SO SO SO long since I have made these, but with summer coming so soon it’s time for the cooler version of oats. Excited to see all the recipes you are going to share this week!
It’s suppose to snow here in Minneapolis tomorrow. Whomp.
YAY! I am obsessed with overnight oats!!
Girl, I was obsessed with Moose Tracks ice cream growing up and I LOVE overnight oats. Can’t wait to try this little combo.
Still obsessed with moose tracks 😛
Ooo I’m going to like this week- Hot oats are okay but overnight is where it’s at! Never heard of moose tracks though but I’m already a fan! I’d faceplant that fudge by the spoon. Or fork. Or spork.
You Australians are living under a rock!
I still haven’t tried overnight oats but have been meaning to for quite some time…this seems like the best way to start! Moose Tracks?! Please and thank you! Also, I’m definitely a morning person. Bedtime is 10 pm…10:30 is pushing it!
HAHA. go big or go hole, Nicola. Moose Tracks it is!
YES, YES, YES. I’m PUMPED for this week and all of the overnight oat recipes. And seriously – could have you chosen a better one to start with!? YUM.
And I’m not a morning or a night person. hahhahaha. I got to bed between 9 and 9:30pm and HATE having to be up before 8am. I’ve required a lot of sleep my entire life and having to sacrifice for our 4 month baby has been, no doubt, the hardest part of parenthood!
Doode you need your sleep and that is totally okay! I have NO IDEA how people can get by on 4 hours of sleep. I would be a walking BITCH 😛
Looks delicious and decadent! Yum!
