Classic Overnight Oats
This easy overnight oats recipe is one of the most popular ones on the blog. Made with whole wheat, pumpkin, and walnuts, it provides 5 grams of fiber per serving.

Choco-Chocolate Overnight Oats
This recipe gets its rich texture from the addition of chocolate, cocoa, and dark chocolate. While they don’t add a lot of sugar to the recipe, the addition of these elements still makes it relatively high in calories. If you like a sweet taste, you may want to reduce the amount of cocoa used in this recipe or try a different recipe from this collection.
Spiced Walnut Overnight Oats
This recipe incorporates a pretty unique element – ground cinnamon and ground nutmeg. While they don’t taste too bad individually, the combination is pretty potent. If you are not used to eating lots of cinnamon and nutmeg, start out with half of what is suggested and see how you feel after a couple of weeks. If you decide that you enjoy the combination, go for it and feel free to add more. Just make sure that you don’t use too much because they can become quite strong.
Apple-Cinnamon Overnight Oats
Here is another recipe that features an ingredient combination that may be a little more unusual than the ones mentioned so far. Apples and cinnamon together in this recipe is a classic combination that is sure to please. If you want to kick start your New Year’s resolution to lose weight, try out this easy overnight oats recipe. It is an excellent choice since you will be getting fiber, vitamins, and minerals from the healthy fruit and the anti-inflammatory benefits of the cinnamon. This combination makes for a healthy, filling breakfast that is sure to keep you going back for more.
Peanut Butter Brownie Overnight Oats
If you’re looking for a change of pace from the previously mentioned recipes, you could try these peanut butter brownie overnight oats. While not exactly low in calories (they contain a few pieces of chocolate), they offer a different flavor combination that may be more to your liking. Peanut butter and chocolate are an excellent combination that is found in many places around the world. If you like peanut butter, you could try and incorporate it more into your diet – it is a quick, easy way to get some nutrients and calories.
Strawberry-Banana Overnight Oats
These overnight oats are basically half the recipe from the classic overnight oats recipe. They call for strawberries, but you can use any kind of fruit that you like – in fact, any type of berry will work nicely. The bananas add a touch of sweetness to the otherwise light and refreshing flavor of the fruit. This is a good option for someone who wants a lighter (albeit nutritious) meal that will leave them feeling full.
Triple-Layer Marshmallow Chunk Overnight Oats
If you like your sweets dense and chewy, you may want to give these a try. Made with whole wheat, oats, and chocolate, these marshmallow chunks provide a deep chocolate flavor that will leave you wanting more. Plus, they are a great way to get your daily dessert fix without too many calories. If you are not a fan of sweets, this may not be the recipe for you – but for the rest of us, it can’t get any better.
Black Bottomless Marshmallow Chocolate Overnight Oats
These are some truly bizarre-looking oatmeal cups. Not only do they look incredibly realistic (like very, very thick layer of frosting on a cupcake), but they also have a chocolate bottom. When you bite into one of these strange mounds of oats, you will most likely experience something you have never tasted before – a combination of sweet, hot, and salty flavors that are perfect together. Unfortunately, these bad boys are also filled with hydrogenated oils, which are bad for your heart (and a lot of other things). For a healthier option, try out the other recipes from this collection.
Granola-Topped Chia Pudding Mug
If you’re a fan of the trendy mug trend, you may want to try out these granola-topped chia pudding mugs. Made with whole wheat, flaxseeds, chia seeds, and shredded coconut, they provide a crunchy texture that is similar to that of cereal. When topped with granola and served in a mug, these chia pudding mugs make for a quick and easy breakfast. Just microwave them for a few minutes to warm up and eat.
Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Sundae Mug
Finally, we arrive at my favorite recipe of the bunch. Chocolate-covered strawberry sundae mugs hold a simple yet classic combination of strawberries, milk, and chocolate. While the mug is probably the smallest portion size available, it holds enough to satisfy even the biggest sweet-tooth. If you love strawberries and chocolate, this is the perfect combination to try.
